Eastern Tune-Up Lodging

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
For on-mountain lodging at Inn at the Mountain, and condominiums, the number to call is (800)253-4754. Be sure to say that you're with the EpicSki Eastern Tune-Up.

The per unit (not per person) rates are:

Inn Room $129/room/night
Inn Suite $179/suite/night
One bedroom condo $199/unit/night
Two bedroom condo $279/unit/night
Three Bedroom condo $389/unit/night

Please add 9% state room and meals tax and 10% Stowe Mountain Resort standard amenities fee for final rate.

Both oboe and epic have seen these facilties - they're beautiful - you won't be disappointed, and they're in the same location as the Saturday night dinner.

For lower priced off-mountain lodging, call the Riverside Inn at (800)966-9217 - but HURRY! These are going FAST!

If anyone can help locate other lower cost off-mountain lodging, your services wil be appreciated.

Last year I stayed at the Northern Lights on the access road to Stowe. Nothing fancy, clean and comfortable and they had a buffet breakfast in the am. Hope this helps! Terry

Sounds great, Terry!

Bear in mind, folks, that a buffet breakfast will be waiting for you in the loft at Spruce lodge the first morning.

Terry, considering our previous conversations about this event and the the star studded cast of coaches we'll have, I trust we'll be seeing you there!

Tell me I trust right.

I would really love to go to this event. However I already have many events plamnned through PSIA.It is very difficult to select wich events to attend. This year's focus will be Level III skiing.
I am sure you will all have outstanding time!
Thanks,
Terry

Terry,

IN RM and one other division (I think it was central or east) Instructor attendees at the EpicSki Academy recieved PSIA clinic credit. Consider substituting the ETU for a clinic, it is worth it!

I wish I could be as cool as these guys, just for a day.

Dare to dream! :

Tom,
I did think long and hard about attending this event. It as at one of my favorite locations and it sounds like the line-up is all-star. However I had to take into condsideration the cost of this event. I can take a two day event with PSIA for half the cost of this event. Or I could go to Pro Jam for 5 days at the same cost.In between all this is my regular job and my commitment to my home mountain.
So much skiing to do but so little time!What's a girl to do???

Thanks,
Terry

Hi Terry--

I understand your concerns, and PSIA clinics are a real bargain! Certainly, you want to attend a few of those PSIA clinics to help prepare you for the Level 3 exam. But do consider the Eastern Tune-Up as well. As an Examiner, I can tell you that it can be a mistake to overdo "exam-focused" clinics. There could be no better training than to ski with one of these top coaches, outside the PSIA structure. Watch them in action, learn, pick their brains. The exam tests you for teaching and skiing, and anything that improves either of these areas is more than relevant. In training for the PSIA exam, it's important to have some fun, and remind yourself now and then that it's really about skiing and learning and playing on the mountain!

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

Ok now you guys are making this really hard! I will definately reconsider.
Bob,
I do understand that over training can realy hinder performance. I love going to clinics of any kind and consider them all fun. To be able to ski with some of the top names in the industry is a dream come true. I pretty much sleep, eat, talk, walk and breathe skiing. I would post more often but my typing skills get the best of me.To get the chance to share information would be great!

P.S. Would you take my firstborn for a downpayment?

Thanks again,
Terry

Hi Terry--

I'd prefer an arm and a leg. They're less messy.

I figured out how VT stays so GREEN. It's our TAX DOLLARS.

Upon calling to make my reservation, I was surprised at the change in the rates from what Oboe had posted.

Turns out there is a 9% state room tax and a 10% resort amenities tax (total 19%) for each night. :

I live in TAXACHSETTS... and still found it shocking.

oh well.

Snowdrift

Some of these are fairly reasonable, too. This is where we're staying. It's 4 1/2 miles from Stowe.

They have some fairly nice houses for rent, if groups want to go in on them. The good news is that the rates are good for ETU weekend!!!!

I've made reservations to stay in Montpelier, sure it is a little further to drive but with my MTA discount I got it for under $150 for 3 nights-not per night, total cost(Friday, Saturday and Sunday). I still haven't committed to the Academy as of yet, but this was a great deal on lodging so I had to take it while the offer was there. I am leaning toward the academy, but if for any reason I find that I can not attend I will be able to cancel my reservation. (My family usually plans a get-together right around then).

So bring your whole family, Skierteach!

Really, what could be better for an extended family than to share an experience like this one together? Even though you would all very likely be in different groups, there will be enough consistency among the groups that you'll have things to talk about at future family get-togethers forever!

Best regards,
Bob

Haha hahaha! Bring the family, now that is funny. I can see my 80 year old aunt, who has skied, but only on barrel staves when she was a girl growing up on the farm, coming down the hill now. With exception to my sister, her husband and daughter none of the others ski. My brothers used to, but haven't been on skis since the days of beartrap bindings and lace boots. Nope, that wouldn't work. Maybe if this was going to be some kind of Ski Patrol (MCI) practice, but otherwise.....hehehehehehehehe!

I just love your website, Skierteach! I've stuck it on my desktop for when I need a quick peek! I love antiques and skiing, and you've got some very cool stuff on here. Thanks! I hope we get to meet you!

Thanks Bonni!

When I first thought about starting my website my hope was that I'd get just a couple of visitors. I thought maybe my family, some friends and maybe some of my students(those in the ski and snowboard club) would visit. The site has only been up since late February and I have had nearly 9,000 visitors. I think that is pretty good.

Over the past few years my interest in ski history has blossomed and I have ammassed quite a collection of postcards, brochures and other things. I needed a way of sharing this with others. The website was the answer.

Thanks again for the positive comments!
Laurie

Interesting site. Comment and question;

You've misspelled memorabilia all over the page, fyi.

And why isn't there a link to EpicSki??? :

Sorry about the spelling error, no one is perfect though! It is fixed now.

As I said before, there is no link to EPIC because I asked for permission to set on when I first made the site and never got a response. Maybe it's just me, but I like to have permission before I include anything from another site on mine. If I were to get permission it would go right on.

I really liked the archaic tone the spelling differentiation in the title gave the site.

Thanks! and thanks to slider for the help in creating the title. I really didn't think that I could do it (make it myself) but his encouragement and the samples he gave me showed me that I could.

Back to Lodging-
There are deals out there if you look. Anything right near or on the mountain is going to be more expensive. Many of these places are already booked as well.
