ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

This is my 6th RS trip, 1st to Vermont. All of the programs I have attended have been excellent. I always had fun and always learned something.

Kathleen McFadden Nov 19, 2014 at 07:28 PM

Is anyone else registered for Jan 19 - 23rd 2015. This is my first RS trip and I'd like to hear the experiences of others.

I did same program last year - it was great. I was EXTREMELY inexperienced as far as skiing. Instructors were extremely patient, kind and helpful. It is a great place. My biggest complaint was that it wasn't a very social program. Participants need to make more effort to socialize, otherwise, it is mainly just mealtime for socializing. Of course, I spent classes in terror which sorta hindered the whole social process.

Serena Uible Nov 12, 2014 at 05:50 PM

I figured that . . . or there was a major time warp. It is a GREAT trip! (I'll be in Puerto Rico - another RS trip in January 2015.)
Kathleen McFadden Nov 13, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Thanks, it is my first with RS, glad to hear you enjoyed it. wonder why the comments aren't archived after a trip is completed?
Serena Uible Nov 13, 2014 at 12:11 PM

I can see where SOME would be of interest, but I'd guess it is more they just haven't bothered.
