About this Event

After a very successful ski trip last year, the Postdoc Associations of Caltech, UCLA, and USC are happy to announce our second joint schools Postdoc Ski Trip to Mountain High Resort (http://www.mthigh.com/site)! Date: Saturday, February 29th, 2020. We are inviting all postdocs and their families to join us. We have secured a discounted group rate for lift tickets, lesson packages, and ski/snowboard rentals.


Family with kids (age 3-10) can also enjoy the Children’s Sports Center at a discounted price!


Join your fellow postdocs for a fun day of skiing/snowboarding! I you would like to come and hang out on the Mountain, but don’t ski or snowboard, please join us and enjoy the beautiful views and snow! If a number of attendees chose this option, we may be able to coordinate a snow hike. We will also be providing snacks and drinks around lunchtime for all who join us!
