The Sierra Ski-O Championships are just a month and a half off. If you register by December 19, you can take advantage of the maximum discounts. If you register now, you can take off $2 for each adult orienteering event fee and $1 off for each junior orienteering event fee (these discounts are good only until Dec. 19). You also get a discount on your Tahoe Donner trail pass (this discount is good for anyone who preregisters before the events).
For those interested in more discounts, consider the following:
- The volunteer cabins
still have openingsare full (as of Jan. 13). At Bear Valley, the 10-person volunteer cabin costs about $35 per person per night. At Tahoe, the 10-person Soda Springs volunteer cabin costs about $15–20 a night per person for up to 6 nights. Preference is given to those who either can stay the full number of nights or to those who can share the nights with others (e.g., you do 3 nights and someone else does the remaining 3 nights, or some such arrangement). Shorter stays are okay but we are looking for volunteers to work at the event so your presence is helpful.
- A membership with Far West Nordic (http://www.farwestnordic.org) provides various ski resort trail pass discounts that you can use for our events (skip the trail passes on your registration form and get your trail passes yourself with a Far West Nordic discount). Many thanks to Max Suter for passing on this information.
