Day Bus Trips -- Rules and Regulations
Members wishing to go on a Day Bus Ski Trip must send in their monies and registration form.
Consider yourself on the bus and on the trip - UNLESS you get a call from the Trip Leader.
You will be notified if the bus is full, at which point you will have the option to be put on a waiting list.
If for some reason the trip needs to be cancelled, you will be called.
Please make sure you include your phone number when filling out your reservation.
Please also make sure your phone number is correct.
You may want to include a second phone number or a cell phone number on the slip.
Last year we tried something new -- 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.
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.
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.
Unless otherwise noted the bus leave promptly at 4:30 PM - 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 only the $15 bus seat fee - you will be refunded for lift ticket and lessons
