Welcome to the CJH Ski Club Information Page

Please check back here often for information regarding ski club, including cancellations, date changes, and reminders.

2016-2017 Ski Club Information

 

Please note that we are changing times and dates from previous years. There will be 3 Fridays trips and 2 Wednesday Trips.  Pick-up times on Fridays will be 9:10 and Pick-up times on Wednesdays will be 8:30.

We are trying out weekdays as a new option this year.  We felt that 5 days would be too many school nights, but wanted to see how a couple weekdays would work as the slopes are much less crowded and we expect our students to get a lot more skiing in during these days.   We felt that 8:30 was a more reasonable time to return on a weeknight and felt that the students would get at least as much skiing, and most likely more due to shorter lift lines.  Please contact us with any questions.

CHECK BACK HERE FOR CANCELLATIONS, SCHEDULE CHANGES and REMINDERS.

 

1. Make sure your child has attended the Ski/Board Safety Meeting (held on Thursday, September 29, 2016).  This is mandatory for any student planning on being part of the club.  If they miss the safety meeting, they must see Ms. Haskel or Mr. LaMonica to get information and take the safety quiz.

You must purchase lift tickets, bring/rent your own equipment, and pay for the bus. Bus transportation will cost $100 for the 2015-2016 season.

  • Lift Tickets

    See linked information on purchasing tickets through the Mountain Creek website. (Click here for current pricing.)
  • Equipment

    You may bring your own equipment or rent equipment from Mountain Creek or another ski shop.

**Please note:

No refunds can be made for single missed nights; once students purchase passes from the ski area, they are able to use the pass for whatever package (see attached) they chose.  Passes may be used all season.  

Please remember that the sport of skiing is inherently dangerous.  Accidents do occur, but skiing under control and staying on slopes that match your ability can help you avoid most accidents.  These trips are a lot of fun and a great way for students to begin skiing and/or snowboarding or to continue to improve their skiing/snowboarding skills.
