Let’s go skiing / snowboarding!
On February 27th 2015, the troop will journey to Timberline for a weekend of skiing / snowboarding.
The cost is only $175 per person.  
This is all inclusive (transportation, five meals, lift tickets, bunkhouse, ski & helmet rental, beginner ski/snowboard lesson).  
If you own your own snow sports helmet, cost is $165 
Snowboard rental is $54 for two days.  
Additional lessons may be purchased if desired.  

Scouts should bring some spending money in case their driver stops and they want to purchase food / drink.
The Troop will be collecting a $100.00 non-refundable deposit starting December 9th; however, you’re welcome to pay the whole amount.  
The Troop needs to send Timberline ½ of the total payment this month and needs commitments from troop skiers/boarders.  
Final payment will need to be made by February 3rd 2015.  

This is not a family activity but parents/guardians of scouts are welcome.  
All adults will need to take Youth Protection Training, the online class can be found by clicking here.  
If you don’t have a account, provide a copy (digital or paper) of your training certificate. 
The Troop can obtain training data for those adults who create an account at using the info on their BSA membership card.
Your BSA Annual Health and Medical Record (parts A & B) needs to be a/o March 2014 or later.
Our very own Snow Sports Merit Badge Counselor, ASM Scott Grabham, will be holding a class on February 12th 2015 from 7-8:30 at Woodlake UMC.
The Snow Sports Merit Badge Pamphlet may also be obtained from:
  • Troop 2860 librarian (see Troop Roster to find librarians)
  • ($4.99)
  • HoVC Scout Shop
The workbook can be found by clicking here, please print a copy and bring it to class.
Scouts are expected to read the pamphlets for the badges they’re pursuing.
It is recommend that scouts print the workbook (may not need last three pages) and start answering the questions that are addressed in the pamphlet.
This will prepare you for the MB class and Timberline.

If you are taking the Merit Badge class make sure you see the Scout Master for a blue card before the class.

Relatively new skiers/boarders shouldn't worry if they don’t complete all req’ts. their first time out.

Our trip to Timberline is well suited to those scouts who've never skied / snowboarded before.  
Timberline has long slopes that are suitable for beginner skiers.  Plus Troop 2860 veteran snow sports enthusiasts will be available to assist.  

A beginner lesson is included in the price and additional lessons may be purchased for $25.
We plan to have a couple counselors at Timberline to assist scouts w/ the on slope portion of the MB.  
We could really use another MB counselor or two – Please sign up (you don’t need to have won an Olympic medal to be a counselor).
