KLJS Ski Trip 
Join us on March 31
Welcoming any and all 19-35 year old Lithuanians for an epic ski/ snowboarding weekend.

What can you expect on this trip? From meandering down Pony Trail on Whistler Mountain, enjoying Aprés ski off the slopes with your lifelong Lithuanian friends, soaking in the hot tub at Listel Hotel (our lodging for the weekend), to shooting down the winter zipline over snow-covered pine trees, there is something for EVERYONE to enjoy. (Non-skiers to experts) Meet us at the secret Blackcomb ice cave, anyone?

Book your plane tickets to Vancouver, pack your ski gear, and get ready to have a blast at the best ski resort in North America!

Location
Whistler, BC Canada

The Listel Hotel
4121 Village Green, Whistler, BC V8E 1H2
Date & Time
March 31, 2023 to April 3, 2023
Getting to Vancouver
All attendees are responsible for their own travel expenses to Vancouver! Try to book ASAP as prices rise everyday.
Flying 
Fly into Vancouver International Airport (YVR). Avoid Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) as this is over an hour outside of Vancouver and even further from Whistler.

Coming from the East Coast? We recommend flying directly into Seattle (instead of having a layover in Toronto) and taking the bus across the border. This can save time and money. Contact Arija Empakeris: [email protected] or DM her on Facebook or Instagram (@sing.an.arija) for assistance in flight planning.

Ferry
If you are traveling by ferry we highly recommend arriving at the Horseshoe Bay terminal in North Vancouver. Then take an Uber/taxi or the 257 bus to Downtown Vancouver, and make your way to Yaletown-Roadhouse Station.

Good to Know
Arrange to arrive in Vancouver on March 31st (morning would be best) to leave time to get through the airport, gather luggage, arrive at the meeting point, and eat before the journey to Whistler.

You can arrive as early as you’d like, as long as it’s not in the middle of the night. We will be meeting near Yaletown-Roundhouse Station. If you arrive early, luggage will be supervised so you are welcome to explore downtown Vancouver before the charter bus is scheduled to leave. Details with an exact address will be provided via email, upon registration.

Remember: Vancouver is in Pacific Standard Time, so when you’re booking flights from another time zone, make sure you don’t arrive too late or too early.
Getting to Whistler
From your arrival, please make your way to the Downtown Vancouver, Yaletown-Roundhouse Station via public transit or Uber/taxi.
KLJS has booked a charter bus to drive us from Downtown Vancouver to Whistler Village, where we will be staying.

Breakfast and lunch on ski days are up to you. If you are skiing, Whistler has multiple lodges on the mountain open for lunch. Make sure to check the time they stop serving lunch (Roundhouse stops selling lunch at 2PM)! They have quick-eats vending machines - if you want to grab a quick snack - or sit down style cafeterias.

Every night, we’ll announce which restaurant/pub the group will be heading to for dinner. We’ll also share where we’ll be going out that night for drinks. You’re welcome to go with the group or eat somewhere else in the village.

FAQ
Can I bring a +1 (Lithuanian or non-Lithuanian)?
Yes! Just make sure they also register through our form, so we’ll have an accurate number of attendees. They are also welcome to purchase accommodation and bus transportation through KLJS (done in the ski trip registration form).

What if I need ski gear? 
There are stores in the village that you can either purchase or rent from. You can also rent directly through Whistler Blackcomb/ Vail Resorts in a bundle when purchasing your lift ticket, but this tends to be more expensive.

Rentals in Whistler Village:
- Through Whistler Blackcomb [bundle when buying lift tickets]
