The public is welcome to join students on this western expedition, expected to cost $375 which will cover lift tickets, lodging and food. Transportation costs have not been calculated. Participants will travel either by van or by a caravan of cars. This trip requires a $50 down payment.

Lodging will be at the Downtowner Inn in the heart of Whitefish. As they do on all overnight trips, OPC leaders will prepare and serve breakfast, lunch and supper. The leaders will also provide some ski instruction to mountain skiing novices.
