What is the attire for the weekend?
The Friday night reception calls for "business casual." Ties and /or jackets are not necessary. On Saturday morning you will be going from Mead Chapel to the Snow Bowl. You'll want to wear layers and comfortable shoes or boots. At the Snow Bowl you will, most likely, be walking on packed snow so high heels are not recommended! Be warm and be comfortable!
What about meals?
Other than a variety of heavy hors d'oeuvres served at the Friday evening reception, and lunch on Saturday, you are on your own for meals. We suggest that you make advance reservations at the restaurant of your choice. Students will be served breakfast on Saturday morning prior to the ceremony in Mead Chapel. We expect the ski down ceremony to be over around 12:30 but allow time for picture taking if you're planning on lunch reservations.

Where can I stay for February Celebration?
There isn't any campus housing available for February Celebration weekend. We suggest you call area hotels, inns and Bed and Breakfasts. You can also visit the Addison County Chamber of Commerce for names of local establishments.
How many guests can we bring?
There aren't any tickets for February Celebration nor is there any limit to the number of people you can bring. We look forward to seeing you and your family on campus at the end of January!
We are bringing elderly grandparents, is there anything special we should know?
All events on Friday evening and Saturday are in handicapped accessible buildings. The road to Mead Chapel is blocked off but a security officer will open the chain so handicapped and/or elderly guests may be dropped off. There is also handicapped parking at the Snow Bowl.
Although we do our best to have sidewalks and roads cleared of snow, you will, most likely, find the Snow Bowl more difficult in terms of walking. There is seating inside the lodge at the Snow Bowl and the ski down procession can be seen from inside as well.
