2020-2021 Trip Line-up

COVID-19 has resulted in a lot of uncertainty in the travel industry. Here are the actions we’re taking:

  • Increased supply of single rooms available
  • Secured option to add "Cancel for any reason" insurance from our Tour Operators (For both Bus and Air Trips). Cancel for Any Reason (CYAR) coverage is a “top up” to a policy purchased through SkiCan insurance provider Allianz. Cancel For Any Reason coverage must be purchased at the time of booking your trip (ie when paying your deposit to SkiCan).
  • Sign-up process will allow sign-up with one other member 
  • Roommates will not be assigned for the 2020/2021 season. The 2 options available:
    1. We will allow members to sign up with a pre-arranged roommate. NTSC will then assign trip spots based on the order of priority list signup, with the exception of keeping pre-arranged roommates together. Both roommates must sign-up separately for the priority list.
    2. If you do not have a roommate - we very much want you to join us but you will need to pay the single room supplement.
  • Each trip will include a conference call with all participants to answer any questions before departure
  • All trip participants must follow the protocols in place by vendors, host Resort(s) and Local Public Health Authorities.
  • Air Trips: Ski-in/ski-out destinations selected to limit the time on buses
  • Bus Trips: 
    • Limited to 28 participants (50% of bus capacity) 
    • No food or drink. No on-bus washroom access (we will have more planned rest stops)
    • Assigned seating and masks mandatory
    • NEW: 3 trips will have drive up options available .

If you did not choose Single Supplement, please be sure that you have found yourself a roommate. If you are uncertain or change your mind, you can cancel yourself from this Priority List and you may register at a later date. To cancel, click on your name next to the Search field, select View Profile, select My event registrations, click on the event, select Already Registered and then click on Cancel Registration.

Click the links under the "Destination" column, and it will re-direct you to the registration page. 

**For later in the season bus trips - Eastern Townships Mid week and Mont St. Anne - we are delaying collecting registration fee/deposit until early January.

    In order to make trips financially viable we have set the following minimums:

    • Air Trips: 15 participants
    • Bus Trips: 28 participants


    How do I REGISTER FOR A TRIP?

    Registration for all NTSC trips will be done online and consists of 4 steps. Please note, you are purchasing a trip from a Tour Operator, NOT NTSC.
    1
    Sign-up for the priority list
    Oct. 17th, 2020!
    A Priority List allows members to indicate their interest in a trip. Register yourself plus your roommate in a double room. Popular trips can sell out within a minute or two of going on sale, so make sure you set the date in your calendar and be ready! NTSC will assign trip spots based on the order of signup, with the exception of keeping couples/pre-selected roommate, matching the gender of roommates with no preferred roommate, and accommodating single room requests.

    NEW for 2020/2021 - we are allowing sign up with a friend!
    Joining the Priority List is free and minimal information will be required. At this stage you are not guaranteed a spot on the trip.

    Air trips go on sale at 9:00am
    Bus trips go on sale at 10:00am
    2
    Trip Registration with NTSC
    If you have secured a spot based on your position on the Priority List, you will receive an email invitation with further instructions to complete your registration within a deadline. That invitation contains a link to a private ntsc.ca page along with a code to continue with the detailed registration process.

    Instructions vary depending on the type of trip (bus or flight) but will start with a request to pay a registration fee to NTSC ($25 for bus trips; $40 for week long trips). This fee is non-refundable, and the only fee that goes towards the Club to fund administration costs.
    3
    Register with Tour Operator and pay deposit
    Please ensure that the information you provided in Step 2 is accurate as this information is used to help secure your spot! It is the members responsibility to pay any fees incurred for any incorrect information provided. The Tour Operator can provide insurance quotes, and will collect payments directly.

    Air Trips: NTSC will provide the Tour Operator with the information you have provided in Step 2.

    Bus Trips: The Tour Operator requires members to provide information directly through their own sign-up page. Unlike Air flights, bus trip payments must be made in full at this time.

    You are not fully registered until the Tour Operator receives your deposit and final payment!
    4
    Pay remaining balance to Tour Operator
    You must be aware of Tour Operator final payment dates, which are posted on the ntsc.ca web page. Be aware of whether your credit card will be automatically debited or whether you need to proactively sent an electronic payment to the Tour Operator.

    Travel Insurance Info

    COVID-19 has brought a lot of uncertainties for our future travels. It is highly recommended for an NTSC member to purchase travel insurance, either through our Tour Operators or another 3rd party provider. We’d hate to see your hard-earned money go to waste if a trip is canceled or something unexpected comes up and you aren’t able to attend. Here we have summarized options provided by our Tour Operator and refund scenarios. 

    If you choose not to purchase any travel insurance, there is no obligation from the Tour operator to provide refunds. Please protect yourself!


    Cancel For any Reason (CFAR) Insurance:


    Policy PDF Document
    The Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) coverage is a “top up” to a policy purchased through SkiCan insurance provider Allianz. Cancel For Any Reason coverage must be purchased at the time of booking your trip.

    The main benefit to the CFAR coverage would be if someone gets “cold feet” prior to departure without any Travel Advisories or resort closures in place.

    If you cancel your trip for any reason other than a Covered Reason, the insurer will reimburse you:
    • 75% of the non-refundable pre-paid insured travel arrangements if you cancel 7 days or more prior to the scheduled departure date; or
    • 75% of the non-refundable pre-paid insured travel arrangements to a maximum of $1,500 if you cancel 6 days to 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure date.
    • Benefits are not payable if you cancel your trip less than 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure date for any reason other than a Covered Reason

    • Policy document
    Someone who purchases a Comprehensive Plan (Trip Cancellation/Interruption) can add the CFAR coverage which is an additional 17% on top of the insurance cost.
    • For example: depending on age and trip cost insurance may cost between $200-250 (including CFAR add-on of 17%).
    There are several combinations of coverages to select from – which include Trip Cancellation & Interruption Coverage and Emergency Hospital & Medical Coverage. Speak to SkiCan or Alliance for best coverage for you.
    • Trip Cancellation coverage reimburses up to the sum insured indicated on your confirmation of coverage for covered losses incurred if your trip is cancelled before the scheduled departure date due to a Covered Reason.
    • Trip Interruption coverage reimburses up to the sum insured indicated on your confirmation of coverage if your trip is interrupted or delayed after the departure date due to a Covered Reason.

    Covered Benefits are listed on page 7 of insurance policy
    Covered Reasons are listed on page 8 of insurance policy
    Call Allianz’s Customer Support to assist with specific questions 1-800-379-9628. Mention you are booking a Skican holiday (Agency #2451).

    Refund Scenarios:

    Depending on the situation for cancelation, as well as your personal insurance coverage purchased, refunds may or may not be reimbursed if a trip is interrupted or canceled. The Tour Operator will only cancel a trip under a Level 3 or higher Travel Advisory. Each level can be summarized as the following:

    • Level 1 - Exercise normal security precautions
    • Level 2 - Exercise a high degree of caution
    • Level 3 - Avoid non-essential travel
    • Level 4 - No travel

    COVID19

    COVID-19 updates and practices:

    Resorts are advising that skiers and snowboarders will have to wear masks on lifts and gondolas and when indoors and physical distancing will be encouraged by removing tables and chairs in bars and restaurants. They are vowing more frequent cleaning and sanitizing. Please follow links below for the resorts latest information. 

    Air Canada has provided an excellent site providing detailed information on their industry-leading program committed to end-to-end health and safety protocols.

    FAQ

    COVID-19 has resulted in a lot of uncertainty in the travel industry. Not all members will want to travel during the 2020/21 ski season, but for those members choosing to travel, the Club will work with Tour Operators to keep members as safe as possible.

    Some of the actions we’re taking include:
    • Limiting bus and air trips to 30 participants
    • Selecting ski-in/ski-out destinations to limit the time on buses
    • Booking more single rooms
    • Valuating how to assign roommates for those not traveling with a friend or spouse (stay tuned!)
    • Securing insurance from some Tour Operators


    SkiCan has also done a Dockside Chat in July bringing together key players from western ski resorts as well as airline companies. A comprehensive Q&A list can be found Here, or you can watch the recording Here

    NTSC typically picks trips that will appeal to a wide variety of members -- notably a variety of terrain and more reliable snow conditions. Other factors include off-hill activities, night life and general ambience at price points that aren't cost prohibitive.

    Unless we don't. Some trips are just too appealing even though we know that they aren't for everyone.

    Except for perpetual favourites such as Whistler and Tremblant, we try to change things up and not visit the same resort more than once every three years.

    We try to time the trips so that snow conditions are ideal (higher altitude or more northerly resorts early or late in the season) while spreading trips as evenly as we can from mid-December through early April. We'll avoid some holidays (especially US ones) but embrace Ontario ones to minimize the time off work. We try as best we can to offer a March Break trip every year unless the premium is prohibitive.
    It depends what are you looking for. Value? Variety? Tradition? Thrills? Comfort? Weather? Culture? Cameraderie?

    Our trips are first and foremost about skiing and snowboarding, so if you've never skied or snowboarded outside of Ontario, think about:
    • The sheer majesty of a big mountain range that stretches over two or three valleys, with a vertical drop almost 10X that of a southern Ontario resort
    • Skiing Olympic or World Cup runs in Park City, Whistler, Lake Louise, Hakuba, Lake Placid, Cortina, or Albertville
    • Taking a leap into Corbet’s Couloir or a similar hair-raising double black diamond run. Or just watching the experts tackle the challenge
    • Skiing or snowboarding in two different provinces in the same afternoon (BC and Alberta at Sunshine Village in Banff), or two different countries in the same day (Italy and Switzerland at Cevinia/Zermatt)
    • Sitting at a bar and meeting people from the UK, Lebanon, Croatia, and Russia and Austria, and singing beer drinking songs in a newly discovered language by the end of the night
    • Side trips to world renown cities and sites such as Innsbruck, Tokyo or Yellowstone National Park

    If you are concerned about the level of difficulty of a resort, talk to a member of the Travel Committee who can advise you on the best trip given your abilities. And see the FAQ on ski/snowboard trail difficulty ratings.
    No. If you do not have a roommate we will provide means to help match you with a same-sex roommate(s). Most trips are based on double occupancy with a bed per person -- unless you ask to share a bed. We try to get you the best roommate possible (smoker/non smoker, partier/quieter). And some trips have a limited number of single rooms (with a single supplement, noted on the page for those trips).
    • Yes, if you are ready for something more stimulating and challenging than what you're skiing in on our Alpine day trips. All resorts we'll visit have designated beginner, intermediate and advanced runs, and we generally post the relative numbers (total runs or percentages) of beginner, intermediate, or advanced runs. Almost all of those resorts will have enough beginner runs to keep you interested.
    • But most people on charter trips will focus on intermediate and advanced runs, perhaps using beginner runs for warm ups or to where they're the only way to get from point a to point b. And so if you only aspire to, or feel comfortable on, beginner runs, you may find yourself skiing alone much of the time.
    • If you're a beginner, but plan to work at your skiing, set your sights on trips later in the year and you shouldn't have an issue.
    • If you are concerned about the level of difficulty of a resort talk to a member of the Travel Committee who can advise you on the best trip given your abilities.
    Yes, we offer trips with a "no lift ticket" option for those with passes or for those who wish to Nordic ski.
    The green (circle), blue (square), black (diamond) or double black (diamond) that you're familiar with locally applies across the US and Canada.

    Europe
    In Europe, resorts use a colour system to help skiers pick the best slope for their ability. It is worth knowing that the grading system will never get harder as you head down the mountain. If you are at the top on a blue run, you will always be able to make it to the bottom on either a blue or a green run. This is a golden rule of European piste grading. From the easiest to most challenging, they are coded:

    • Green: A green route will signify beginner or practise slopes. If you’ve never been skiing before, you’ll want to start here.
    • Blue: These runs are likely to be well-groomed with a shallow slope with a gradient of less than 25%. A European blue is closer to a North American green.
    • Red: These routes are steeper or narrower (or a combination of both) than blue slopes. Suitable for intermediates, they are usually groomed with a gradient that will not exceed 40%. A European red is closer to a North American blue.
    • Black: While best suited to experts, what is classified as a black route is ambiguous. In some resorts, they might only be slightly trickier than a red route. In others, it could be terrifying. A good rule of thumb is to judge a black route to the red route in the same resort.
    • Yellow/Orange: Recently, many European black routes have been reclassified as yellow. This colour signifies a run that is not groomed, is unpatrolled and considered off-piste within a marked area.

    Japan
    Japan uses a color-coded system, but shapes do not usually accompany them. Some resorts, mainly those catering to foreigners, use the North American or European color-coding system, adding to the confusion. When in doubt, check the map legend. The usual ratings are:
    • Green/Beginner slopes: These are usually near the base of the mountain, although some follow switchback routes down from the top.
    • Red/Intermediate slopes: At most ski areas in Japan, these constitute the majority of the slopes (40% to 60%, depending on how the slopes are accounted).
    • Black/Expert slopes: These are the steepest and most difficult slopes at the ski area. The difficulty of these compared to like-classified slopes at other ski areas is heavily dependent on the target audience.
    The options available are:
    1. Choose another trip to join.
    2. Go on the wait list for your first choice trip and in the event that a spot opens up (someone on the list cancels) or we are able to obtain more spots, we'll offer it to members on the waiting list in the order they signed up. While we cannot commit to anything, it is common for 5-8 people to be offered spots in the last couple of weeks prior to departure.
    3. If you're really determined you may be able to book directly with the same tour operator for the same resort at the same week as the club. Just be prepared to pay a bit more, and check with the Committee to explore constraints (for example you may be able to book a room at a resort, but if we have a dedicated bus to drive us to the hills and that bus will be full, we can't accommodate anyone who isn't signed up through NTSC).
    No. NTSC run trips are only available to club members. Membership has its privileges. This is a TICO (travel industry) regulation.
    • NTSC Snow School instructors are not insured to teach at out-of-province resorts.
    • Lessons are available at each resort’s snow school
    There are trip/club deadlines and individual deadlines. They are almost always imposed by the tour operator, and sometimes by the resort. Club Med in particular is very strict about deadlines, and even when the trip is later in the season (e.g. La Plagne 2100 in March) they will insist on early registration. This is why we must put that trip on sale even before new members can join.

    Deadlines enable us to grow a trip in size, or reduce numbers (and in a worst case scenario cancel a trip).

    Trip/Club deadlines apply to the entire trip. NTSC pays a deposit and we are subject to penalties if we cannot meet minimum group requirements. NTSC plans the season with the expectation that we will comfortably exceed those minimums, but in case we make a mistake we reserve the right to cancel the entire trip. But a more likely outcome of a poor choice on our part is that we will 'return' excess seats. Once we return seats to the Tour Operator it’s unlikely we can get them back and we will close registration. So the sooner people register, the more we can ensure group rates for hotel and flight and not incur a loss. Earlier registration may also guide us in requesting additional seats or accommodation if a trip proves surprisingly popular. In the case of bus trips, it may be the difference between adding a second bus or not.

    Individual deadlines are typically driven by trip deadlines. Once we close a trip, you can't sign up for it. The other important deadlines relate to 1) initial payments and final payments, and 2) individual cancellations. Different trips will refund different amounts for cancellations at different times prior to departure. The Club's registration fee ($25 for bus trips; $40 for air trips) is non-refundable after you've paid. Payments to the Tour Operator may be returned (in whole or in part) depending on whether and when we can find a member to take your place. Additional fees may be imposed or payments forfeited (especially for air trips, where airline penalties are being passed through). Details are on the trip pages and vary by trip.
    There may not be availability at the hotel. The tour operator blocks off an estimated number of rooms that are adjusted as needed. If by a certain date we do not fill them, we release them back to the hotel. We may or may not get them back later depending on availability.
    Most Tour Operators’ proposals will allow a limited number of diversions. There may surcharge to do so in order to maintain group airfare and it is a common requirement to join the Club for the outbound leg of the trip. Most trips will also offer a 'Land Only' price for members who want to arrange their own airfare (or are flying on points). Those members are not bound by the dates of the Club's trip, but are on their own for arrangements outside of the Club's reservations, such a bus transfers.
    Everything you would bring on an Alpine Day Trip, plus:

    • Medical/cancellation insurance -- options are generally included on each trip's web site. It is your responsibility to understand what coverage you have from your private insurance, and how it may or may not apply to specific circumstances that may arise on a ski trip -- especially an out of country trip.
    • enough to last 6-7 days.
    • Some resorts will have laundry facilities, but don't count on it. If they do (check the hotel's web site), then one travel size laundry detergent will suffice.
    • Anything you don't want to pay inflated resort prices for should you forget it (although liquor may be cheaper at our destination than in Ontario).
    • A passport for outside of Canada for Canadian citizens. If you're not a Canadian citizen, you must verify visa requirements. Verifying visa requirements is your responsibility! If you are turned away at the US border it is your responsibility to make your own way home from the border.
    • Ear plugs -- your assigned roommate may not know they snore; and if they don't know, we won't when we assign you to the same room. Ear plugs may also be useful on bus trips.
    • Boot dryer
    • Flip flops for the hot tub/sauna, and a bathing suit
    • Weather appropriate layers -- if you've never skied a big mountain, the difference between base and peak and between morning and afternoon can vary drastically; and mountain weather is notoriously variable.
    • If the trip is to a resort noted for its powder you may want to consider powder straps to lessen the risk of losing a ski.
    • DVD's or CD's (buses generally have a player, or the bus may support the connection of a phone or other devices with tunes). You may wish to share your musical tastes with the group (or not, in which case bring headphones). We show videos after the dinner stop of return bus trips; see above re: sharing your tastes.
    • Many people will bring food and drink on bus trips to share; more is always better. Overseas, you may wish to buy a SIM card for your phone (at the destination) to avoid excessive roaming charges.
    NTSC Trip Leaders are volunteers who are selected from registrants to help create a fun and social atmosphere on the trips. For bus trips we appoint one Trip Leader per bus. For larger air trips (i.e. more members) we may appoint a co-trip leader or assistant trip leader.
    • On each trip, the Trip Leader will host a welcome party, so that members can meet each other and to create a social atmosphere on the trip. Often Trip Leaders will organize other social events or outings on the trips.
    • Examples of Trip Leader duties include:
      • Send out last-minute information on the trip to registrants prior to the trip, including roommate information;
      • Provide an itinerary of key dates and events; and
      • Be available to answer questions and help solve problems that impact the group. So if you have individual problems with the resort or the hotel, that's probably your responsibility to sort out. Ask the Trip Leader, but that's not why they're on the trip. They're skiing or snowboarding too.
