Trips

Welcome! When you join the Sly Fox Ski & Snowboard Club, Appleton you can take advantage of our fabulous trips.  

IT IS HERE! Our Trip Chair, Sam Fontaine worked his magic on finalizing our plans for the Sly Fox Ski & Snowboard Club International ski trip in 2025 ski season.  

Details for the International trip on January 10 thru 22, 2025 to Zermatt Switzerland (7nights) & Nice France (4nights) is HERE!  Trip opens for sign up on May 20, 2024. 

It is time to revisit this great area. Sam has scouted the area this last January and was impressed with all that Zermatt has to offer along with our lodging.  It is a wonderful town with the ability to ski right off the mountain into town.  
 
Our lodging at The Perren is a short walk to the Suneggabahn (underground funicular) & Gornergratbahn (cogwheel train up the mountain).  No vehicles in Zermatt except for the local bus that will take you to the cable cars that deliver you near the Matterhorn. Zermatt is easy to get around and a fabulous town to walk.
Sit on the side of the mountain to enjoy fondue & white wine with the backdrop of the Matterhorn.  It truly is breathtaking.
 
Following Zermatt, we will be transported to Nice, France on the French Riviera.  A 30 min train ride to Monte Carlo, Monaco to mingle with the rich & famous. For the adventurous, vineyards abound, several hour beautiful train ride to Marseille France, the famous painter’s museum-Musee Matisse in Nice just to name a few.
