If you will be picking up your student from the mountain PLEASE sign them out with one of our chaperones! 

REMEMBER, if you have skipped classes or have discipline issues while participating in this program your pass will be pulled and NO refund will be given!  This also goes for your behavior on the bus and at the mountain, if there is a problem we will pull your pass (if purchased through our club) and cancel your transportation. 

Please remind your parents of this so they are aware of the policy.
Also if you take the bus to the mountain you MUST return by bus to school unless a parent signs you out w/ one of the chaperones at the mountain.  You are only allowed to go home with YOUR parent. 
If your student is late (5+ min) for the bus coming home they will not be able to ride the bus up or back the following week. 

Please also talk to your student about dressing for the weather, following the rules, of not only the mountain but also the rules that they signed, proper bus behavior and finally, encourage them to wear a helmet!


1.)  Students bring equipment and bags with gear to school  – Will they will be locked up for the day?  What room do they bring their stuff to? 

Students will put their equipment in a locked hallway.  It will be open from 7:15 until 7:45 on Friday mornings and then locked for the day. This hallway is located between the Theater and the School Store.

2.)  Where do the students meet after school?  

They will pick up their belongings and head out the back door, to a bus that will be waiting by the back of the school gymnasium entrance.

3.)  Do they change prior to departing?  

They will change at the mountain.

4.)  What time do they depart?  we depart BHS at 2:55 and return back to BHS at about 9:15 at the circle if all the students are prompt about getting to the bus on time.   If a student is late by 5 min without a very good reason, they will not be able to go with us on the bus the following week.

5.)  When do the students receive their passes?   Passes will be handed out on the bus the first day we ski.  After that day the students  will be responsible for them.  Keep in mind that Pat's Peak charges a fee for re-issuing lost passes.  

6.)  Please confirm that Pat Peak has a ski and board check to avoid thefts? 

Yes, they do and we will encourage all of the kids to use this!   It is a free service! 

7.)  What is the location of the ski and board check?  

Both lodges have bag check, and you can't miss the equipment check tent outside.

8.)  Can the students earn Real World Learning Hours which count towards graduation?  

They will get 8  RWL hours as long as they ride the bus 3 of the 5 weeks that we ski.  This is the maximum per year, per activity.   I will have the signed paperwork at the end of the program for each student that qualifies.

 Any questions?   email me at

 Thanks for your support!
