NASJA will kick off 2019 with a January 9-11 meeting at Magic and Bromley Mountains in southern Vermont.
Magic Mountain has become a Mecca for its legendary terrain. From some of the most consistently challenging expert runs and tree-skiing in the east, to its classically designed, uncrowded intermediate and novice trails, Magic has been bringing the stoke to skiing since 1960.
Magic has been through some tough times but with new owners since 2015 they are back with a great story to tell. Ski Magazine picked up on that and recently made Magic their cover story. Join NASJA to experience this wonderful mountain.
Bromley Mountain is home to 47 trails on 300 acres with a crowd pleasing variety of skiing terrain for all levels of ability. They are the only major ski area in New England with a southern exposure, guaranteeing sun-drenched smiles.
We will be staying two nights at the Upper Pass Lodge located at the base of Magic Mountain. Bromley is just 10 miles away.
Here is the agenda (exact times to come):
Wednesday evening: January 9.
Arrive at the Upper Pass Lodge.
Welcome Reception – food and soft drinks with alcohol on your own. The Upper Pass Lodge is home of Vermont’s only bar serving exclusively Vermont made booze. Wednesday nights are $8 Build-Your-Own Burger Night and 1/2 priced beers. Their dining room is small and the Burger Night is popular with the locals so reservations are recommended if you want one of New England’s best burgers.
Thursday January 10.
Ski and learn about Magic Mountain. Breakfast and lunch buffets included. Dinner is on your own. Both Magic and the Upper Pass Lodge have great Thursday night dinner specials. Thursday night we stay at the Upper Pass Lodge.
Friday January 11.
Ski and learn about Bromley. Breakfast and lunch at Bromley included.
Bromley story ideas:
– Feb. 8 – Mom’s Day Out promotion – full-day lift tickets for mothers of all ages are available for a donation to the Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center (SVRCC)
– Mar. 2 – History Ski Day, in conjunction with the International Skiing History Association (ISHA)
– A new snow park for beginner to intermediate riders and skiers – a more family-friendly terrain park
– Enhancements of the Terrain Based Learning (TBL) Program
This opportunity for what will be a fantastic meeting came together recently and we are still working on a few of the details including online registration and credit card payment. While we iron out those details we want to get the information to you and have you to be able to register before Christmas and New Years become your focus. Also the Upper Pass Lodge is holding rooms for us and we’d like to be able to release them for others to use by Jan 1.
You can do an old-style registration by contacting Martin Griff at Timesgriff@aol.com with an option to mail him a check made out to NASJA or you can pay online by credit card using the form below. Lodging is limited, so don’t delay.
