OVSC New Year’s Trip to Quebec 2015

The Ohio Valley Ski Council is going to do a New Year’s Council trip to Quebec, Canada, December 30 thru January 4.  We will enjoy the ambiance of the Chateau Frontenac for lodging, and skiing Mt. St. Anne, Stoneham and Le Massif.  There are many activities for the non-skiers as well, such as a visit to the Ice Hotel, the tubing park or just the European flare of Quebec City.   New Year’s Eve in Quebec will have live music and fireworks.

We are contracting this through the OVSC; there will be no contracts to the clubs.  Flights will be departing from Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati and Evansville at this time.  Contact Marty Baldwin OVSC/NA trip director to sign up.  It’s going to be an exciting New Years!!!
