Welcome to the Pentagon Ski Club!
The non-skiing vacation trips listed below (scroll down to UPCOMING EVENTS) are available for registration/signups as indicated.
2024 Ski Trips
We're still in the process of setting up our 2024 ski trips. We anticipate having everything ready to begin accepting signups by mid-June. In the meantime, here are the trips we anticipate offering. Several trips remain tentative and some dates and destinations may change. We'll be receiving the remaining proposals and selecting tour operators in the coming weeks. Then in early June we'll hold our all-day "Summer Summit" Council meeting where we'll establish the selling prices and appoint trip leaders. After that, we'll put all the trips online and open them up for registration/signup:
Epic & Ikon Passes: Most of our trips will be going to resorts that honor one of the multi-resort season passes. You may purchase passes directly from the suppliers, but several of our our tour operators have promotions offering discounts or rebates in conjunction the trips you might take with the club. Go to our Epic & Ikon Pass page to see the offers. You may wish to consider purchasing your passes through them. The exceptions are Military Epic passes and military discounts on Ikon passes, which are only available from the suppliers.
You should consider purchasing passes early-on as the costs typically increase before the Memorial Day holiday and periodically as winter gets closer. Season pass sales are likely to end sometime in late fall.
Blue Ridge Ski Council: Beginning August 1, 2023, registration for our 2024 ski trips will be opened to members of other ski clubs that are members of the Blue Ridge Ski Council through the "sanctioning" process. Hint: To register for a trip you must first "join" the PSC as a no-cost BRSC member and populate your membership profile.
Tips for All Trips
Trip Insurance: Be sure to review our Trip Insurance page before signing up for a trip, and consider whether to purchase cancellation insurance. Note that the cancel for any reason options require that you pay the premium within 21 days of paying your initial deposit on a trip.
Important: If you are registering someone other than yourself, you must log out of your own account and then log in with their credentials. If you skip this step and register them while signed into your own account, their profile information won't convey into their signup record. This is necessary even with family (bundle) memberships where you are the bundle administrator.
Wait-Listed Trips: Click on the button to Join wait list and we may be able to confirm you on the trip if we have a cancellation, after confirming that you still want to go. We're also sometimes able to expand a trip to accommodate additional skiers.
Trip Invoice & Initial Deposit: An invoice will be generated for each trip you've registered for. Each trip includes a payment table listing an initial deposit, one or more interim payments, and a final payment date. You must pay the initial deposit, and any subsequent interim payments that have or are about to come due, to secure your place on the trip. Your registration is not confirmed until we receive and acknowledge your deposit. Payments can be made online with a credit card, or by check. We can also accept credit card payments at club meetings.
