Winter Sports Trips

Cancellation Policies

In order to minimize our environmental impact, maintain facilitator-to-participant ratios, meet permit criteria, and transportation logistics, OP trips are often programmed for small groups. Late cancellations can seriously impact our ability to accommodate others and recover costs.

  • Refunds will be given for cancellations made 1 week prior to the trip leaving for day trips and 2 weeks prior to the trip leaving for extended trips.

Trips are open on a first-come, first-serve basis. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. For more information, e-mail To sign-up, visit the Campus Recreation Gear Shop.

If you have any questions please contact Daniel Lawrence.
