Class of 1965 Mini-Reunion Vail
March 4-6, 2005
Skiing: For the main "reunion" days, we propose to
follow the same routine as last year. We will meet near the Ski School entrance point to the Vista Bahn Lift at
9:15, head up mountain at 9:30 AM, break for lunch at the Bistro Restaurant in the Game Creek Club on the mountain at
around 12:15 PM, and then ski or not in the afternoon as the participants on the day want....
Friday, Mar 4, 2005 / Saturday, Mar
5, 2005 / Sunday, Mar 6, 2005
Friday, March 4 is an "All Dartmouth Ski Day" hosted by the Dartmouth Club -Vail Region.
We expect participation by the Tuck Alumni Skiers, the Dartmouth Lawyers Association and members of the Denver
Dartmouth Club. Last year, we had over 45 Dartmouth connected skiers on the mountain at one time which
may be some kind of record for Dartmouth skiers outside of New England. We would love to see twice that number playing
with us this year! Tell your friends in the Dartmouth community around the globe.... Come to Vail for the first
weekend in March!
|VAIL IV - RECORD TURN-OUT
The newly formed Dartmouth Club
of the Vail Region
The Club has a membership from
Classes as young as
1946 to as old as 2001.
For any of you who think you
are too old to ski, think about
this... Some of the Vail
Dartmouth Club's members were
Dartmouth in the year most
of us were born!
On Saturday, March 5, we will plan to line up a Ski Instructor to guide us around, provide some minimal
instruction to those in need and help us beat the lines if there are any. This is sort of an insurance policy to be
sure you get the best possible skiing opportunity. We'll split the cost up amongst the "heads" skiing in this group.
Arrivals on Thursday or before
For those who can arrive early, we will organize some activities to fit with your availability.
Just keep us posted on when you will be coming and when you are available to play with us...
Friday Afternoon and Evening: DCVR and "All Dartmouth Cocktail Party"
Along the lines of our very successful event last year, we plan to use the Sonnenalp Hotel "Library
Room" in Vail Village as our venue. Last year, we had over 60 people at this event. It was quite a good time for
everyone.... We will probably have dinner in the Bully Pub afterward....
Friday, Mar 4: Cocktails 4:30 - 6:00 PM, Dinner 6 - 8 PM

Saturday Night: Snow Shoeing to "the light of the moon"
The plan is to start from the mountain's snow shoe rental HQ at the top of the Gondola lift at 6:00 PM. After hiking
around the top of the mountain with a guide in the light of the moon for an hour or so, we will have a group dinner at
the Blue Moon Cafe in the Gondola building. If you have never had the experience of snowshoeing
at 12,000 ft. in the dark of night, this is your chance! If the weather is with us and you time your lift ride
up the mountain right, you will see the sun set and the moon come up! It is pretty spectacular!
Saturday, Mar 5: Meet top of the Gondola at 6:00 PM; Dinner at 7:30 PM in the Blue Moon
Sunday and beyond: Open Schedule
The Sunday skiing plan is as noted above. For those who stay on to Monday or longer, we will
organize dinner and appropriate activities so plan on continuing the "weekend" as long as you can...
