The trip is full, pretty much, you can sign up on the waiting list online if you really want to go. There is no one waiting at this tiem so you might just be able to go! The pre trip meeting is Jan 14 at 7:00 pm at Trinity Lutherna Church in Stillwater. Here is a pack list.

As many of you know, the way to dress is in layers!
Sleeping bag

Several pairs of wool socks

Bring a shrunken wool sweater (previously ruined) to do a project (look at Goodwill.) Scissors and a large eye needle will be useful as well.
If you have you own cross country skiis, please bring them. Please try to limit your gear to one duffle bag.

Now that I look at this list I would advise all people to pack these things and keep them packed so you can be ready to go on an adventure at a moments notice, The Minnesota summer pack list is not much different.

Sons of Norway


(Easy and Elegant, Safe Ski Adventure)

Carry a smile and see how easy it is to ski and look elegant at the same time. Norwegians have long been Nature appreciative, as well as instrumental in making the oldest tool in the world work for them in snow. Over the years, many improvements have been made in ski equipment making skiing unbelievably easy and safe. Plus, we look elegant doing it!!!

On January 30, 2010 at Hyland Hills in Bloomington, MN, Norsota Lodge invites you to a downhill ski adventure where you can see and be informed on the easy and elegant, yet safe way to ski the newer equipment and look really cute while doing it. Ski with a 20 year experienced instructor from the Vail/Beaver Creek ski school, and explore this marvelous sport for yourself!

Please bring a friend, relative, and /or a candidate to join the Sons of Norway. Norwegian influence on skiing (the cradle of skiing) will be presented should time permit.

Ski sessions on the hill will begin at 4:00 PM

5:30 PM

7:00 PM

8:30 PM

Ski sessions include demonstrations of the way to make the ski turn you, and advice will be offered for those wishing to learn this simple process. Session size will be limited to ten participants.

Participants must be 25 years old or older, and must be able to ride a chair lift, and agree to a normal liability statement.

Registration cost is $14, and that includes the lift ticket for the day.
