Troop 287,

Here is another fun opportunity to get into the mountains and experience something awesome that Colorado has to offer!! Skiing and Snowboarding!!!

Pikes Peak Council set up a bus ride and are running the Snow Sports Merit Badge. How perfect is that because we were planning on going up this month anyway. This we we don’t need parents to drive and we will save a lot of $$!

The cost is $20 which cover’s transportation to Monarch and Lunch (Try even getting lunch on the mountain for that price on your own..)

This is the cost for lift tickets…

Monarch – Feb 4th

  • Lift ticket ages 16+ – $69
  • Lift ticket ages 13-15 –  $47
  • Lift ticket ages 12 and under- $29
  • Rental (Ski or Snowboard)- $30

Now, if you already have a season pass and/own your own equipment then you only have to pay the $20 to get up there.

Also, some other ways to save a little money might be to rent equipment here in the springs and if you are military then you might be able to get a deal at one of the Outdoor Recreation store on the military bases.

Please sign up here on SignUpGenius so I can track who is going but you MUST also go to the council site located at this link and sign your scout up there.  In this case Troop 287 will not collect the money. You will pay online directly to the council.  Make sure you select the Monarch Trip on Feb 4th.
