Beat the Crowds with the Midweek Ski Bus


AFTER BEFORE


AC skiers should clear their schedules on Thursdays from mid- January through Spring Break for the midweek ski bus, which returns this year. Last year Susie Niedermeyer Neighbors took the helm as “go coordinator” to get the MAC midweek ski bus up and running again after a few years’ hiatus, and she is grateful for the members who stepped up at the last minute to help make it work.

It may have been dreary in town, but there were clear skies, sun and great snow for six weeks, then epic face-shot powder late in the season for two extra weeks on the mountain last year.


Midweek, there are no lift lines, crowds or traffic. There is a fun and comfortable ride to the mountain in a luxury coach with bath- rooms, morning pastries and afternoon treats. Riders can sleep or be social, either way the rides go fast.


The bus packages to Meadows are a great savings with great camaraderie.


“I really appreciate all of the things Susie did, from getting the ski bus started again to organizing the awesome guests on the bus and making it all come together,” says Marcy Stearns. “The ski bus trips and the mid-week lessons really have helped make me a more confident skier and helped me find the fun in a sport that I had previously only found exhausting and scary.”


Skiers from last year look forward to another great season this year. Sign up early as the buzz is out.


“I’m so happy to carry on the old tradi- tion of the MAC to Meadows ski bus, as my mother rode the bus in the ’70s and loved it,” says Niedermeyer-Neighbors. “She was in such a great mood after those days and now I understand why.”


Sign-ups begin at MAC Ski Movie Night, Thursday, Nov. 17 at 5:30 p.m., or contact Susie at Susie.neighbors@gmail. com or 503-830-9188. WM
