There is still room on the trip, but we need money soon for group lift tickets. Contact me to secure your spot. 

This is THE MAMMOTH READING DAYS that you've all heard about. Join SKEEZE, the 5C ski and snowboard club, for the undisputed biggest and best outdoors trip of the year. We'll pile into cars and carpool up to Mammoth on Wednesday and spend the next two nights hanging out in our very own house and accompanying cabin--hot tub included. We'll ski/board Mammoth on Thursday and Friday and be back Friday night in time to study all weekend. We'll do a packout for meals. There's no better way to take a break between the end of classes and finals. 


ALL ABILITY LEVELS ARE WELCOME, you'll definitely have someone to ski/board with, regardless of your experience. There's always a huge crowd on the bunny slope. If you're thinking of trying skiing/boarding, there's no better way to do so.

HOW TO SECURE YOUR SPOT ON THE TRIP: There are about 70 spaces available on the trip. There are always many more than 70 people who want to come. Here's how we figure out the lucky participants.

FIRST: Sign-up here. Future updates will be sent via e-mail and for such a big trip it's essential that we have everyone e-mail addresses in a central place.

SECOND: Contact me and we'll find a time to meet up so you can pay for your spot. First-come, first-served, and we need money soon because group lift tickets require advance purchase.

We cannot guarantee refunds for individuals that drop the trip, due to advance purchase of group lift tickets. We will do our best to fill your spot off of our waitlists, but do keep this in mind.

Signing up here DOES NOT guarantee you a spot on the trip. You must also get your money to me. As always, preference will be given to drivers as needed. 

There is also an opportunity to stay in Mammoth after Reading Days if you don't have finals early in the week. Please let me know if you are interested.
