New This Year -- Day Bus Ski Trips sign up and registration will be done online.
You will need your Member Logon and Password to start.  Day Bus Trips can be viewed only when logged in as a Winterset member.  Instructions for online signing up are below.

Bus Information: 
  - Where: Southbury's Commuter Lot Exit 14 I84.1 pick up & drop location to save time & $
  - Departs for mountain at 5:45 AM sharp so be early
  - Departs ski area at 4:45 PM & estimated return to commuter lot will be ~7:45 PM; Note: we won't be stopping at Vermont Deli on way back this year

All participants MUST be WSC/Sterling members so bring your membership card so we can purchase your discounted lift tickets at the mountain.

All children under 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult.

All must sign/acknowledge waiver policy form
.

The bus company has significantly increased their cost due to new driver regulations limiting their hours by the Fed. As a result, we had to limit the number of trips to four and increase the adult ticket prices this year. Also we increased the  WSC subsidy for each trip up to $1,400 so we can still offer great bus seat prices...
  - WSC Adult $25; Child $10
  - Sterling Adult $35; Child $20 (Note: SSC members still must sign up manually so please contact Jay)
Also the bus driver's tip is included so they'll be no more "passing the hat" around.

Also please note Jay Dinnan & Kevin McNerney are WSC's new day bus trip coordinator.
They can be reached at: wbustrips@gmail.com

Rules & Regulations for Day Bus Ski Trips

Day Bus Trips -- Rules and Regulations 
If for some reason the trip needs to be cancelled, you will be contacted. 

Please also make sure your phone number and/or email addresses on your membership registration are correct. 
You may want to include a second phone number or a cell phone number on your membership. 

Again this year -- ONE stop - the bus will pick up ALL members at the Commuter Parking Lot at EXIT 14
off I-84 in Southbury. If you are looking for an address, you can use the address of the church,
Sacred Heart Catholic Chuch, 910 Main St South, Southbury. The commuter
parking lot is directly
across from the front of the church.
After picking up all members, the bus will proceed directly to the mountain.
Knowing this, please bring any food and/or beverages you will need for the trip to and from the mountain.
There is a restroom on the bus. The bus will NOT be stopping at the deli on the return trip home. Please
bring food for the ride home, or purchase food to go from the mountain before returning to the bus. When we get to the ski area we ask that you wait on or next to the bus while the Ski Trip Director gets and passes out the lift tickets. After you get your lift ticket you are free to go. The club usually subsidized lessons. Anyone wishing to take a lesson please let the Bus Trip Director know either on your reservation form or before the trip. There is usually a PG movie on the bus ride home. There is no movie in the morning, due to most people wanting to get a little additional sleep. No ski boots can be worn on the bus. In the morning ski boots can be brought on the bus and placed under the seats. At the end of the day, we ask that ski boot be placed underneath with the skis. Snowboard boots may be worn on the bus. Please refrain from calling the Bus Trip Director at unreasonable hours - this includes both the night before and the morning of the trip. The email address for the Bus Trip Director is: wbustrips@gmail.com When placing equipment in the storage bins under the bus, we ask that you please try to keep all skis and snowboards together in one or two bins and leave the other bin for coolers, boots, bags and other equipment. Please take the same seat for both the ride up and the ride back. Books, pillows, food for the ride home and such may be left on the bus during the day. The club and/or the bus company is NOT responsible for these items. There will be no access to the bus during the day - please bring everything you need with you into the lodge. WE NEED YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE THE BUS CLEAN - trash bags can be found in the front and rear of the bus, check your area and take all trash and garbage with you when you leave. Please see the individual bus trips to find the time the bus will leave the mountain for the ride home.
Please be prompt at getting to the bus at the correct time and also, please note the bus number
and the name of the bus company. You must be a member of Winterset/Sterling to participate in the Day Bus Trips. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone wishing to use Bulk Buy Lift Tickets on a trip may do so, please make note of this when sending in your reservation. Also please remind the Day Bus Trip Director of this before arriving at the mountain that day. BRING YOUR CLUB ID - we cannot purchase your lift ticket without it. If you cancel you will lose the $25 bus seat fee and you will be charged a $5.00 cancellation fee. Yes, there does seem to be a lot of things to know about joining us for a Day Bus Trip, most are common sense. We have a great time on these trips and hope that you join us. If you still have questions, or any comments, ideas or suggestions, please email us and use the words "Day Trip" in the subject line. Thanks and Happy Skiing!
