Hello Nordic skiers!
Normally notification of the annual Methow Valley trip is sent out around Labor Day. However, there have been so many inquiries about the trip, it feels appropriate to address the inquiries sooner than later.
There will be two trips offered in 2018. The first trip is Jan. 16 to 21 (five nights) and all 18 rooms are being held for our group. The second trip is Jan. 29 to Feb. 2 (four nights), and a limited number of rooms are available for this time period.
Mazama Country Inn offers five types of rooms and each is priced differently. The larger rooms (Dogwood & Evergreen) can accommodate triple or quad occupancy. The smallest rooms (Aspen) are perfect for single occupancy. Rates are based on double occupancy and include accommodations, all meals (including appetizers before dinner) taxes and gratuities. Transportation to Mazama, Wash., and trail passes are not included. Please visit www.mazamacountryinn.com for more detailed room descriptions. Single, triple or quad rates are quoted on request. Winter rates for 2018 have not yet been established.
If you are not familiar with the Methow Valley, please visit www.methowtrails.org for details. The system offers three areas and over 200 kilometers of expertly groomed trails for both classic and skate skiing. Some of the best skiing is right out the door from Mazama Country Inn. Snowshoers are also welcome and if you’re just getting started as a Nordic skier or want to improve your technique, this is the perfect place to advance your skills. Rental equipment and ski lessons are available within easy walking distance of Mazama Country Inn.
A deposit of $150 per person and a completed overnight trip application are required to confirm your reservation. Click right here for link to trip form or else look in blue box on right-hand side of CONC website home page.
Dates for final payment for both groups will be established in September and the cancellation policy of Mazama Country Inn will be in effect after final payment is made. The date of your check will determine how room requests are filled.
Please make your deposit check payable to Joanne Dalsass, LLC and mail it with your completed overnight trip application (one per person) to 630 NW Roanoke Ave.; Bend, Oregon 97703. Please indicate your preferred type of room.
