CYA Hut Trip to Section House at Boreas Pass

This year’s hut trip is to a single destination: Section House at Boreas Pass. This refurbished structure built in 1882 once housed the men and their families who maintained the narrow-gauge railway that ran from Como to Breckenridge, one of the most popular railroads in the days of active mining. Yalies can either cross-country ski or snowshoe a little under 6 miles on a gradual grade from the west side of the pass.  Stay the nights of March 15th and 16th at the cozy cabin with warm beds and a wood stove.

The 10th Mountain Division huts are in high demand, and we have a precious 10 slots available. Organizer Tom Creighton ’76 will work out meal planning, including potluck and self-provided food, with those who sign-up, and he’ll also arrange car-pooling with a meet-up point.  Cost for the trip:  $80 per person. For questions, contact Tom:  tecreighton@msn.com, 720-320-5805.

FebClub Emeritus 2019

February | 2019

In the late 70s as a response to New Haven winters, Yale undergraduates began to hold parties every night in February. That tradition developed into FebClub Emeritus, with social gatherings for alumni of all schools and programs scheduled all over the world. There are only three rules: no speeches, no fundraising, only a party! It’s a great way to meet fellow Yalies in your area. If you’re travelling, check the FebClub Emeritus website to find one at your destination. The schedule of events will be updated, as new locations are added.


Grand Junction: Friday, February 1st, The Club at Redlands Mesa, 2325 West Ridge Boulevard, starting at 6:00 pm. Scott Proper ’01 and Andrew Jones ’93, Scott.Proper@anbbank.com
