JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING, D.C. – If you’re a fan of skiing or snow boarding, or someone looking to fulfill a new year’s resolution of trying something different in 2013, the WhiteTail Ski Resort in Mercersburg, Pa. may be just the place for you.
Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling’s Liberty Center is hosting a trip to the slopes of WhiteTail Jan. 26th for sailors, airmen and any service member interested in a full-day of fun. Coordinator Kay Berube said it’s the center’s fourth year venturing up to WhiteTail – with the hope of doing this again two or three more times during the winter season.
Since it’s the Liberty Center’s first official trip of the New Year, Berube expects interest to be high.
“We have two buses and another one on reserve if we need it. A few people have signed up already and there’s plenty of room for more,” Berube said. “WhiteTail is a great resort. The courses are very user-friendly and they pride themselves on great customer service. We always have a great time when we’re up there.”
WhiteTail features a gift and sports shop, restaurant and many other amenities to help guests with their experience. There are also several classes ranging from beginner to advanced level for those seeking some instruction before hitting one of the resort’s many trails or courses.
Lift pass tickets cost $30; Rental tickets are $45 and E-Z Learn tickets, which includes a ski lift ticket, rental equipment and an hour and a half beginner’s lesson are $40. All tickets are available through the Liberty Center, which is located in Enterprise Hall at Bldg. 72. All tickets include a meal voucher, Berube said.
Buses will depart the Liberty Center 9 a.m. Jan. 26th and leave WhiteTail at 9 p.m. that night. Berube expects to return to base around midnight. She said the deadline to sign up for the trip is Jan. 23rd. Tickets are on a first-come, first serve basis and must be purchased with either cash or check.
