Save /print the online reservation form – you will need it to get your lift tickets

when we arrive at Lutsen.  You are responsible for finding one or more fellow

Redeyes that you want to room with.  Then one of you would reserve the

room with your credit card using the website link above and split the cost with your roommate or roommates.  

Lodging - Pricing above is based on double occupancy @ AmericInn @Tofte,MN.  AmericInn has a very nice common area, breakfast included, hot tub and is about 10 minutes from the ski hill.  Shuttle to hill available.  Located next to the Holiday station/convenience store.  Rooming would be cheaper if you can coordinate roommates  for Triple or quad occupancy. 

Meals:  Breakfast included @ AmericInn, lunch  on your own at hill.  We are planning a  group dinner Saturday night @ 6:30pm at Cascades Restaurant and Pub at your expense, Menu to be determined.  Please email me if you interested in this . We  are planning a  wine and cheese party on Friday night @ AmericInn.

Transportation-Yes you will need to drive or carpool with other Redeyes as we do not have a charter bus.  Last year most Redeyes did carpool together.  Please let Sue or I know when you have booked your lodging reservation and we will help with carpooling once we know who is signed up
Departure times may vary depending on peoples time schedules.  From Eau Claire it is 4 ½ hours to the AmericInn.  Sue and I usually leave about 3:00 from Bloomer.  Return time to Eau Claire would be about 9:30, We usually stop in
Superior @ Culvers for dinner. 
We’d love to have you come to Lutsen, ski with your fellow Redeyes and check out the  Gondola to Moose Mountain and the high speed quad lift as well.  Once you have reserved your room let us know and we will include you on the car pooling and planning emails
You can email us at, or call us  at 715-271-7824 Jim and Sue Block

Trip Insurance.  What is it?  Do I need it?

Your ski vacation is a significant investment.  Like many things in life, sometimes things can, and do, go wrong.  To reduce the financial risks asociatated with vacation travel, there are companies that offer "Trip Insurance".  This type of insurance covers unanticipated expenses related to trip cancellations, delays, accidents requiring medical care, etc...  The coverage usually costs about 5 or 6% of the total trip.

The Red Eye Ski and Snowboard Club does not sell trip insurance as part of their group trips, but we urge each participant to consider the value of insurance coverage as it pertains to each trip and the unique risks associated with that trip. For instance - those of you going on the Banff trip might need to consider the potential gaps in your regular medical insurance for accidents and illnesses that occur while traveling outside of the United States.  Those going to Snowmass might consider the slightly higher potential for weather related travel delays with the Chicago connection and the flight to the smaller airport at Aspen.

Trip insurance is an individual decision, and the transaction is strictly between you and the insurance provider.  Please click on the link below to view one insurance provider's current plan offering.
