Date of Field Trip: Tuesday – February 12, 19 & 26 and Thursday March 7 (3:00-8:30)
Students will need to bring: Winter ski gear including a toque, waterproof mitts, jacket, pants, neck warmers (no scarves), snowboots, goggles, HELMET, change of clothing for after their session and snacks/dinner or money to buy dinner, if they choose to purchase one there.
Helmets are mandatory. Students who do not have their own helmet will be provided one by Mt. Seymour free of charge.

Return Time (approximate): 8:30 p.m.
Teachers in Charge: Ms. Beauregard, Mrs. Diep, Mrs. Perry, Ms. Best & Bart Pukacz
Other Adult Supervisors: Parent Volunteers who are competent skiers/boarders (If you are interested in volunteering please email Ms. Diep – firstname.lastname@example.org)
Cost of Club: Online payment will be open Oct. 29 - Nov. 2 on the school website
The $280 cost includes regular in-school meetings to get to know each other, winterized bus travel to and from the mountain, 2 hours of instruction each trip by Mt. Seymour staff, lift ticket, equipment rental, helmet if needed, a full season's pass to Mt. Seymour, wrap-up dinner and safety equipment such as identifying lights for supervisors, student arm bands. Fees have to be paid using school cash online.
Buddies: Your child will be with a buddy when not in lessons. If he/she does not have one, one will be selected for him/her. They MUST stay with this buddy during free time. Please talk to your child about the importance of skiing/boarding with a partner.
Season's Pass Form: Your child will receive a season's pass for Mt Seymour with their registration. Please fill in the form and send it in with the permission slip and First Tracks form. Once I have sent them to Mt. Seymour, you may pick up his/her pass at the mountain during winter break. They may use the pass at any time after that. The pass is for the lift ticket only, not lessons or rentals (rental passes can be purchased at the mountain for $99!) Students do not need this pass for our trips to the mountain; a separate pass will be handed out each day.
