The Club leads many one-day trips to the local areas in the Sandias, Santa Fe National Forest, Pecos Wilderness, and the Jemez Mountains. Spur-of-the-moment trips after a good snowfall are announced on the website and eGroup. A few day trips are planned in advance (but dependent on snowfall) and listed in the monthly newsletter. You can also contact the Day Trip Chair at DayTrips@NMCCSkiClub.org.
Day Trip Announcements & Sign Up
Notices of Day Trips are sent to club members by the eGroup email. Be sure you are on the email list to take advantage of announcements. Instructions for meeting or signing up are included with the notice, and may require contacting the Trip Leader for information about the meeting location and time. Some day trips require leaders to screen participants for skill level and preparedness. Others may be limited in group size. All trips scheduled through the website scheduler will be listed in the Calendar. If it’s been snowing, check the calendar!
Skill Requirements & Tour Levels
Day trips are planned for all levels of skiers, and the emphasis is on FUN! Day trips are rated for a particular ability level, Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3. The ability level, length of trip, meeting time and place, etc will be specified in the trip announcement. If you are uncertain whether your fitness and skills are appropriate for a trip, contact the leader to discuss. See Guidelines for Participants in the documents area below.
Day trips are open to both members and prospective members. Non-members must contact the trip leader before the trip. Participants should familiarize themselves with the documents lin the documents area below. Before the trip starts, all participants will be asked to sign the Trip Sign-In and Liability Waiver Form.
For those carpooling to a trailhead, every participant is expected to help cover the driving cost. The Executive Board sets a cost per mile.
