For 2024

Hello Everyone and welcome to the timelines & Deadlines Page for the exciting lineup of SST trips and tours planned for 2024.  It's early May 2023 and people are now vaccinated for the Coronavirus and with the spring in full swing, we are looking forward to travel abroad for next year.  I will be updating these pages as we go along.  At the moment, the trip planned for January 2024 to Austria and Italy is in the Sign Up Stage and there are wait lists.  We are also working on a Ski Tour to Japan as well for early February, 2024.


At a glance below, you'll be able to get an idea of the timelines for all of the trips and see what can fit with your plans; especially if your goal is to attend one or more of them!  With the exception of the Japan & Europe Tours, the trips may fit in between the regular Bye Weeks for the SST Program so you can do a ski tour and not miss a session.  However, the overseas trips are all 2 weeks long and you will miss one week in order to attend; sacrifices, sacrifices.

So, how about taking the time to contemplate a ski trip abroad with us next season?  Take a few minutes and travel through the timeline before the actual trip unfolds so you plan your way on to one of them with more ease and clarity.

This purpose of this page is to not only give you a template of what and when things need to be done, but, to prime you with appropriate and measurable steps to achieve them.

Timelines & Deadlines

Putting together trips like this require lots of coordination between multiple parties who work independently, often on different continents, months in advance of the event becoming a reality.  Over the seasons, SST Ski Tours has developed a rhythm and cadence that works quite well for all concerned and I am truly amazed and grateful for all the rewards and memories we have been able to garner for ourselves and for you, our faithful ski clientele. 

The actual trip planning starts almost a year in advance when we decide on the schedule and then choose the destinations to fill in the timeline for each trip.  For 2024, we are staying optimistic that the pandemic will remain behind us and that we can safely start traveling again. 

From April to mid June, 2023  decisions will be made.  Here are the possibilities as we see them.  Let us know which one most interests you and we'll add you to the list.
