Hello Engineering Graduate Students!

EGSA is inviting you to attend our 5th annual ski/snowboard event at Greek Peak on Saturday, March 1st. There are a limited number of tickets, and they sell out pretty quickly, so have your money and Cornell ID ready!

How to sign up:
We will have a table set up on Thursday and Friday, Feb 20th & 21st from 12:00-1:00pm in Carpenter B1A. Please bring your Cornell ID (necessary to sign the liability form) as well as the money for your ticket (in cash please!). Since this trip is significantly subsidized by EGSA, we will have to limit the discounted tickets to only engineering graduate students (but we would love to have others join us at the slope!). We are also looking for volunteers who can take few people in their cars. If you are willing to drive, please let us know at the sign up session.

Beginner's package (incl. rental, lesson, beginners slope lift ticket): $15
Full mountain pass (all trails): $30
Equipment Rentals: $20

NOTE: EGSA will not be able to refund tickets that are purchased, so only buy one if you are able to come!
On the day of the event:
We will meet in the parking lot behind Thurston Hall at 8:45AM on Saturday, March 1st to head up to Greek Peak. We plan on carpooling, so anyone who offers to drive is greatly appreciated (and we urge those who ride with them to contribute $5 towards gas).

Other expenses: $5 for gas for your driver, ~$15-20 for lunch (or pack your own lunch)

We hope to see you there!
Your EGSA Board!
