Below is a parent letter to one of the Head Ski Advisors:
I want to thank you for all that you do to organize ski club and make the experience both safe and fun for the kids. I can remember the first trip that my son went on when he was in 5th grade. Another mom and I drove up to hang out at the lodge and just see what it was all about and how it was run. (I didn't know you at the time :) I went away from that first day with complete confidence that this was going to be a great experience for him and was happy to sign my daughter up when the opportunity was offered ..."
I consider ski club one of those opportunities that allow my kids to grow and to learn to become more responsible for themselves, their time, gear and money. You and the other teachers set a terrific tone for the experience and the kids know that they need to be responsible or they aren't allowed to participate.
I know it must be nerve wracking for you at times but I appreciate all the time, effort and energy you (and the other teachers!!) put into making this fun and positive experience for all.
All my best to you!!"How do I know the status of the ski trips?PLEASE, do not call your child's school.Depending upon weather conditions, a decision may not be made until noon on the day of the trip.
