(1) OPTIONAL EXCURSION TO STRAWBERRY PARK HOT SPRINGS - WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7


Take a day off from skiing mid-week (reminder that if you have an Ikon Base Pass, you are limited to 5 days of skiing at Steamboat), and join us for a relaxing afternoon trip to these beautiful natural hot springs, nestled in the mountains. Strawberry Park Hot Springs blends the pure natural beauty of the environment with the unique stone masonry of thermal pools, for an unforgettable experience.

AGENDA:

  • 1:15 - Pick-up from Gravity Haus
  • 1:45 - Arrive at Strawberry Park Hot Springs
  • Enjoy… Enjoy… Enjoy...
  • 3:30 - Pick-up at Strawberry Park Hot Springs
  • 4:00 - Arrive back at Gravity Haus


NOTES - PLEASE READ
:


1. Bring (or wear under your clothes) whatever you want to wear into the hot springs (since it is daylight, your birthday suit is NOT recommended...lol). There is a changing cabin available.

2. 
Most people bring a towel, but towels can be purchased at Strawberry Park Hot Springs for $5.

3. NO SNACKS, GLASS, OR ALCOHOL PERMITTED.



REGISTER IN ADVANCE

David Dvorin is our "Excursion Leader" for our hot springs experience (I'm helping...), and we need to give him a count of how many people will be participating so the bus company will know how many shuttle buses to provide. Please sign up for the excursion by clicking on "register" and selecting the activity to sign up. Payment is not required with registration (see below under "PAYMENT").

DEADLINE: JANUARY 12

COST
: $45/person


PAYMENT: The cost per person of $45 includes your ticket to the park and round-trip shuttle service. Payment will be made to the bus driver by each individual (cash or credit card) before boarding the shuttle buses. Please note that this does not include a tip for the bus driver; we are suggesting each person consider a tip of at least $5.00.
