YOU'RE INVITED! - The Harvard Club of Philadelphia invites all Ivy League alumni along with their spouses, significant others, friends, and guests to the 6TH ANNUAL ALL IVY SKI/SNOWBOARD TRIP.  Those significant others, friends, and guests do not need any association with an Ivy League institution other than you!  So bring them along!  CLICK HERE TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATION!!!

OUR HOTEL - Double, triple, and quadruple occupancy options available, so it makes sense to bring along a few friends!  (If you select triple or quad accommodations, it is up to you to form the group.

FLYING SOLO? - No problem.  Sign up for a double room indicating that you are "Flying Solo" and we will make every effort to pair you with another individual of the same gender.

 

THE NIGHTLIFE - You can walk from our hotel to the legendary Wobbly Barn, Killington’s home for good times and high altitude entertainment featuring live bands every weekend or check out the numerous other options which are just a short shuttle bus ride away.  You will never be at a loss for something to do!!!

 

ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGE - We have put together a complete, comprehensive, everything you could possibly want, all-inclusive package which consists of:
