Frequent Traveler Program
Did you take more than one trip with the club this past season? Any traveler who goes on more than one organized TBSSB trip during the same season will qualify for a cash reward. The reward for the 2017-18 season is $45 for each trip after the first one.
Qualifying trips include ski and non-ski trips that were led by a TBSSB trip leader, with all monies paid in full to TBSSB. The season includes any trips during the Club’s latest fiscal year, which is May 1, 2017 through April 30, 2018. The club member must be in good standing to be able to collect this reward, meaning they owe no money to the club.
To obtain your reward, you must send a Frequent Traveler Rewards Program Form to the Club Treasurer, Barb Shank, address noted on the form, between May 1 and June 30, 2018, and include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. The form will be available to download from the TBSSB Website, from May 1 through June 30.
We love having you on several trips and this is just a small way of saying, THANK YOU!
OPEN LETTER FROM TBSSB LEADERSHIP TO OUR TRAVELERS
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! What a wonderful season the Tampa Bay Snow Skiers & Boarders have had so far – due in large part to our fantastic members – and it’s not over yet! Almost every one of our trips either sold out or added more spots as the demand exceeded our initial supply! Wow! We sincerely appreciate all our travelers, both our regular “hooked” members and our newbies. You put your faith in us to deliver awesome trips. We’re confident we succeeded.
Our Club also hosted a boatload of other fun activities, as we do every year. We continued to hold monthly parties, always open to the public, and a couple of those exceeded our typical fun-level and past attendance, such as the Halloween Party at Bill Jackson’s Shop for Adventure, and the January Party at the Hofbrauhaus. All were great fun! Besides our regular monthly parties, we also held two bike and blade events, a kayaking and BBQ event, a “Girls Night Out”, attended a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game, and held a bowling party. Besides being great fun, these social events provided members several opportunities to see each other again.
Every so often, it's important to distinguish our CLUB from a business. Tampa Bay Snow Skiers & Boarders is not owned and operated by a business. It’s a "non-profit", all-volunteer club, run entirely by dedicated volunteers who participate because they love it! This club has been going strong for almost 50 years! That longevity is a testament to the dedication of our members and leaders, and to the quality of the events and trips we provide season after season.
We would be nothing without you, our travelers, which makes TBSSB the greatest Club in the world. Our members are not clients or customers, they're family and friends! Plus, you provide valuable input to our planning for future seasons, which never seems to end, and you tell us what we’re doing well and where we can improve. We’re constantly using your input to become better trip leaders. Again, thank you! We’re here for you and will continue to do our best to provide great trips to places you want to go!
With that in mind, we are already hard at work on next season's trips and will soon be working on planning the social events too. The FSC (Florida Ski Council) trip destinations are confirmed to be Big Sky, Park City, and Cortina, Italy! We will post details on our website as they become available, but we are already accepting deposits, only for these 3 trips. See the website and send in your deposits soon to reserve spots on these trips. Trip applications to come.
2018/2019 MULTI-MOUNTAIN PASS
Want to do more than 1 ski trip next season? Ever checked out a multi-mountain pass vs. on-mountain costs?
TBSSB is offering 2 great passes, the EPIC and the IKON, AND, we are planning trips to many of their resorts.
EPIC PASS - Available for Vail, Park City, Telluride, Breckenridge & Beaver Creek. Price increase after April 15, 2018. Get the EPIC PASS
IKON PASS - Available for Banff, Big Sky, Snowmass/Aspen & Snowbird/Alta. Price increase after April 9, 2018. Get the IKON PASS
TBSSB is planning trips to most of these destinations.
Purchase through the TBSSB website and receive a $50 credit towards your next club ski trip. Children 12 and under are not eligible for trip credit.
Both passes are also good for other destinations that TBSSB is not traveling to this coming season, but if you should happen to travel there without the club (heaven forbid), your pass would be good there too.
