YOU'RE INVITED! - The Harvard-Radcliffe Club of Philadelphia (HRCPhilly) invites all Ivy League alumni along with their spouses, significant others, friends, and guests to the 7th Annual Ski/Snowboard Trip.  Those significant others, friends, and guests do not need any association with an Ivy League institution other than you!  So bring them along!  CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE HARVARD CLUB OF PHILLY WEBSITE TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATION!!!

OUR DESTINATION IS KILLINGTON, VERMONT - As we said above, the numbers say it all: 7 mountains, 22 lifts, and 73 miles of trails...  Plus the best nightlife in the East!  Need more information than that?  Go to www.killington.com.

THE ITINARARY - We will travel by private motor coach departing Philadelphia, PA Friday morning at 9:00AM and pick up additional alumni and guests in Princeton, NJ at 10:00AM and then in Morristown, NJ at 11:15AM.  Our bus will be well stocked with a variety of food and enough beer and wine to make the trip go quickly.  We will arrive Killington late Friday afternoon so you can grab dinner and hit the sack early...  Or start with our All Ivy Happy Hour (the first round is on us) and then stay out late!  It's up to you!  Saturday and Sunday will be packed with skiing, snowboarding, and anything else that you care to do.  On Saturday evening you are free to celebrate the night on your own and Sunday evening we will have our traditional group dinner with entertainment and door prizes.  Finally, we will depart our hotel in Vermont Monday morning and have everyone home by about 6:00PM.

OUR HOTEL - Double, triple, and quadruple occupancy options available, so it makes sense to bring along a few friends!  (If you select triple or quad accommodations, it is up to you to form the group. NOTE THAT ALL ROOMS CONTAIN TWO DOUBLE BEDS.)  We will be staying at the newly renovated Killington Mountain Lodge.  After a hard day on the mountains you can procure a cocktail, hang by one of the two massive fireplaces, or soak in the gigantic outdoor hot tub by the bar.  More information is available at www.killingtonmountainlodge.com.

FLYING SOLO? - No problem!  Sign up for a double room indicating that you are "Flying Solo" and we will make every effort to pair you with another individual of the same gender.

THE NIGHTLIFE - You can walk from our hotel to the legendary Wobbly Barn, Killington’s home for good times and high altitude entertainment featuring live bands every weekend or check out the numerous other options which are just a short shuttle bus ride away.  You will never be at a loss for something to do!!!
