Home » Trip Schedule » Skiing


Our program offers one Skiing and Snowboarding Trip per year, usually over the semester break to a place in Colorado. Unlike most of our trips, participants are pretty much on their own each day. We fly to Denver and then take a charter bus to Steamboat Springs, CO. This trip is designed for 12-18 people. Beginners are welcome as lessons are available. If you have never skied out west, here’s your chance. The scenery is beautiful, and there’s usually great snow!

Pre-Trip Meeting: Thursday, Nov. 12  at 5:00 pm in the ORC

Join us for our 20th annual semester break ski/snowboard trip!  There are three prices to choose from, depending on how you want to get to and from Utah.  The $760 price includes Shuttle Bus transportation from Salt Lake City to our condo, 5 nights lodging, and a 4-day lift ticket to Park City Ski Resort, with 116 named trails, 4 terrain parks and 19 lifts.  The base elevation is 6,900 feet, with 10,000 foot summit.  We will be staying at the Shadow Ridge Resort Hotel.  This is a ski in and out location!    We are also close enough to town to not need the shuttle bus service!    These spacious condos have a full kitchen, fireplace, and comfortable dining area, plus free wifi , a hot tub, a swimming pool, and a workout facility.  The rate we are paying is for “full occupancy”, which means two people are assigned per bed.  If you want a bed to yourself or if a group wants to secure a unit all to themselves, there will be an additional $400 fee for every spot less than 4 people or 6 people.

Trip Information

Most trips are designed for a small group of people (10-12), and many of the trips require no previous experience. The fee for each trip covers the activity, transportation, in-camp food, camping fees, and group equipment. For more information, look for flyers around campus or stop by the Outdoor Recreation Center (at 2600 Children’s Way and behind the new Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center) during ORC rental hours. This is also where the Pre-Trip Meeting takes place. Trips are open to all VU students, faculty, staff, and VRWC members.
