Ski Club Begins this Friday, Jan 10th

ST. ANDREW’S SKI CLUB INFORMATION PACKET 2013/2014 

What is the Ski Club program? A six week long ski or snow board program for students in 3rd grade and older. The package includes one-way transportation, lift tickets, lesson and rental equipment, if applicable, at Alpine Valley Ski Resort. Sessions including a one-hour lesson the first week. (Additional lessons can be purchased for $16.00 per lesson) with the remainder of the session open for free skiing. The program will start on Friday January 10th and run for six weeks.

What are the benefits? The ski club program offers students the opportunity to learn a healthy, exciting outdoor sport that can be enjoyed the rest of their lives. Safety and proper conduct on the slopes is stressed, as well as having a good time.
You have the option to ski or snow board.
During the six week program you do NOT pay for any missed sessions.
Ala carte pricing, you only pay for what you need. (Lift, equipment, lessons)
Parents and guests are invited to ski on Club dates also for the reduced rates.

* Students will receive a ‘Club Card’ that can be used for reduced prices at times other than the weekly club night: lift tickets -$16.00 and rental equipment -$16.00. Valid during non-holiday periods Sunday thru Friday after 3:00p.m. (This is in addition to the regular Friday sessions and is valid for the 13/14 ski season or $5.00 off during holiday rates)
What is the cost? With own equipment $160.00 (Includes one lesson at any level)
With rental equipment $250.00 (Includes one lesson at any level)
**Price includes one-way bus transportation to Alpine Valley. (Please see additional note on transportation at the end)

What kind of lift ticket will we receive? All students will be given a Club Card listing their name, school, equipment info and ability level, that they will keep for the season. Students will also receive a new lift ticket each week.. With this ticket, the non-renter can proceed directly to the skiing area and the renter directly to the rental department for equipment. All tickets and club Cards are the responsibility of the ticket holder and lost tickets will not be replaced without good cause.
Club cards will not be replaced for any reason if lost after the first six sessions.

How does the lesson program work? A one hour lesson at any level is included in the package. In addition to the lesson students will also be given an on slope evaluation as to their current ability and given a sticker to wear attesting to their proficiency level. The sticker is color-coded to correspond with the relative difficulty of each slope. This way, the students can match themselves to the skiing terrain and they should be able to ski safely.
If a student wants additional lessons they can be purchased for $16.00 each. We have found in the past that most students only take one or two lessons even when they are offered more.

Are lessons requiredYES Every student is required to have an evaluation the first week to show his or her proficiency level. All beginners will also take a lesson the first week. Intermediate and advanced level students are required to take their one free lesson sometime within the six trips. All students, regardless of ability, are required to have an evaluation sticker on their ticket. This will be given out the first week.

How do we get our rental equipment? Students renting equipment proceed through the rental desk to the rental area, where the employees will select the proper equipment quickly and efficiently. All information from the student’s rental form is already written on their rental form. (These will be sent home in the family envelope each week. Just fill out and send back to school in the family envelope) All rental equipment is individually marked for easy identification. This identification is recorded each week on the student’s ticket and noted when the equipment is returned at the end of each session. Failure to return rental equipment will result in the loss of ski privileges.
What if we have our own equipment? Students need to bring their own equipment to school (sorry, Durham Bus Company will not permit ski equipment on the morning to school, bus) on Friday mornings and put it in the concessions area by the gym. Students will take it from here on their way out the 7th street doors to the bus.
What do we wear? The basic necessities are a warm jacket, a hat that covers the ears, insulated gloves or mittens, a good pair of ski socks and some type of waterproof pants. All snowboarders are required to wear a helmet. (Club members can purchase a helmet at the Alpine Valley pro shop for 10% off with club card or any sports store, MC Sports has a good selection and good prices around $30)

Helmets can be rented from Alpine Valley for an additional $10.00 per session. ($60 for six weeks)

Ski dates and times:
Fridays, January 10th, 17th,24th, 31st and February 7th and Sunday February 17th , 2014.

If an emergency occurs:
In case of an accident or serious illness, a chaperone will accompany your child to the nearest medical facility. Lakeland Medical Center in Elkhom. You will be notified immediately. In order for your child to participate in this program, we need the information on the Emergency Medical Consent form must filled out. One form is needed for each student.
Helpful Hints:
Lockers are available (and recommended) and take 3 quarters (75 cents) so come
prepared and then there will be no need to wait in line for change. Sharing with a friend is
a good idea, but remember there is only one key, be sure the key is pinned to a piece of
inner clothing. A lost key results in a $5.00 replacement fee.
Bring a snack to eat on the bus heading to the ski hill, but please, no littering on the bus.
There is a cafeteria on site to purchase food if you choose.

TRANSPORTATION NOTE: PLEASE SIGN AND RETURN
In the past few years that I have been ski club director, I have found the on most weeks the bus going to the ski hill is full, but upon returning there are only a few students. Many are being picked up by parents at the ski hill or are car pooling back home because they are choosing to ski later that the 7:00 club designated ending time. This worked very well in past years so bus transportation will only be available from school to Alpine Valley. It will be your responsible to arrange transportation from the ski hill to home.
IF THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT TRANSPORTATION PLEASE CALL PATRICK FLEMING AT 262-728-6264(home) or 262-749-4775(cell)
