    LODGING:  Interlude Condos. You can’t get better ski-in / ski-out conditions. Located directly on the slopes, just uphill from the main lift area, you simply cruise down a short distance to catch either a hi-speed six-pack, or a gondola, for a fast ride up to mid-mountain. At the end of the day, you glide down the mountain, halting just feet away from the lodge doors. The Interlude boasts well-appointed condos, a brand new hot-tub, free WiFi, and a short walk to the Snowmass Village with its restaurants, bars, ski rentals, and gift shops. A free van will transport residents to and from a nearby grocery store, on demand, when food or drink supplies need refreshing. 

    BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Four broad mountains lying shoulder-to-shoulder, coated with some of the best snow in the Rockies and interlaced with 94 runs that follow curving broadways, meander down  forested lanes, and weave through aspen glades. Seven on-slope restaurants are available to satisfy your hunger and thirst.

    Join Knoxville Ski and Outing Club and Crescent Ski Council

    Travel to Granada and Sierra Nevada, Spain 

     Extensions to Lisbon, Portugal and Barcelona, Spain

    Basic Tour March 17-25, 2020

    $1141.00 Double Occupancy $1526 Single Occupancy 

    Pre-trip to Lisbon is now FULL

    Hello everyone,

    Granada, Sierra Nevada, and Torremolinos Spain with extensions to Barcelona and Lisbon, Portugal what a line-up for a trip!  We have a wonderful, exciting adventure awaiting us in March of 2020!

    Just an update to let you know we have 23 people signed up for the CSC trip so far.  Many are going to Lisbon for the pre-trip and are also going on to Barcelona for the post trip.  We have a great group going!  If anyone is interested, let me know so I can get the paperwork started.  It is important to work quickly because this includes all CSC clubs.  Nineteen other clubs are also registering with a combined 100 space limit.  At this time there is no availability for the Lisbon Extension but Granada and Barcelona are still available. Don't wait too long or you will miss out on this trip. 

    Double Occupancy pricing is as follows:

    • Basic trip to Granada/Sierra Nevada - March 17-25, 2020   $1141
    • Pre-trip extension to Lisbon – March 14-18, 2020 additional $640 - full  
    • Post – trip extension to Barcelona – March 25-28, 2020 additional $752

    These prices do not include airfare or travel insurance that will cover trip cancellation.  We have requested group air from Knoxville and estimate a price in the range of $1100 - $1300.  The cost of Travel insurance from Travel Protectors depends upon the trip options selected.  Purchasing travel insurance can be a big benefit.  Many club members have been glad that they had travel insurance when unforeseen events occurred right before some of our trips.  Compared to the price of the trip it is a small amount.

    Registration for the trip is as follows:

    1. Attached you will find the form that must be submitted with your deposit.  Please send the completed form, copy of your passport personal information page with 1st deposit  ($600.00 basic trip, additional $150.00 for each extension) to:

      Elaine Denney
      P.O. Box 30312
      Knoxville, TN 37930

    2. There are a limited number of spaces for all of the Crescent Ski Council clubs.  You are not guaranteed a space until your form, passport page, and 1st deposit is received by Holidaze.  Elaine will be responsible for getting this information to Holidaze.  Therefore, it is important to respond quickly.

    3. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the end of the trip.

    4. Please pay attention to the second page of the registration form as it has very important information about travel insurance and if you choose to book your own air.

    5. KSOC dues must be current.

    6. Single rooms are on request only and cannot be guaranteed.

    Any questions or concerns please contact me.  I will be at the Happy Hour at Lakeside Tavern on Friday, July 12, 2020 with registration forms for anyone wanting to sign up at that time.  Bring your checkbook!!

    Please contact me with questions about trip price, airfare, travel insurance.  (Elaine Denney:  865-919-2307

    The Downtown Grill & Brewery has always been a favorite gathering place for KSOC. It is located in the heart of Knoxville close to the Tennessee Theatre.  It has a rich history, told not only by its well-worn hardwood floors, but through its pictures of Knoxville gone by that decorate the walls.  You will find a tempting menu, fine craft-brewed beers, and a selection of other flavorful drinks.

    The condos are nicely furnished with a wonderful ocean view, outdoor balcony, full kitchen and dining area, along with a clothes washer and dryer. You only need to bring your clothes, water toys, bicycles, food (when not eating out), paper towels, and dishwashing soap.

    You lodging fees include the CSC registration fees. You get DJ parties on Friday and Saturday nights with dancing, wine, and beer included free. Enjoy the Trade Show on Friday night, and then a themed party on Saturday night. You can also purchase bar drinks. There will be a Thursday evening/night Early Bird event with an inexpensive activity fee (not sure what this will be yet).
