    This is a very exciting campout that includes the opportunity to learn to snowboard or snow ski. We currently have 25 spots reserved so please send me an email if you would like to participate. We will offer the Winter Sports Merit Badge but please be aware it will likely require more than one day on the hill unless you are an experienced skier or snowboarder.

    We will stay at Marmon Valley Farm in heated bunkhouses. We will also have meals provided by Marmon Valley. You may want to bring some snack money for Mad River Mountain.

    Cost: See form attached. If you already have all your equipment and season lift ticket please contact me and I will help you with pricing.

    Please RSVP to Ryan Long if you plan to attend. Permission forms and payments will be collected prior to the outing.
