Atlanta Ski Trip

February 03, 2024 - 3:00pm EST to February 04, 2024 - 4:00pm EST

With meteorologists predicting extra snow this year due to the El Nino Affect, the United Church of God, Atlanta congregation is once more planning its annual ski trip. This year—our 13th consecutive ski and snowboard trip—is scheduled for Feb. 3-4, 2024. Based on the success we had last year at Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and Ober Mountain’s newly renovated lodge, we will be back there again in February.   

The cost for this year’s activity is noted below. These rates include equipment and lift ticket (and the added cost to the church for handling the payment via PayPal).

  • $102 for skiers
  • $107 for snowboarders
  • $61 for lift ticket only (without equipment)

Details for the trip, including payment details and recommended lodging, are offered at:  https://www.ucg.org/congregations/atlanta-ga/posts/atlanta-ski-trip-february-3-4-2024-977886  

Payment Deadline - The deadline for payment is Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2024.
