MMS Ski Club is back!

The MMS Ski Club is returning this year thanks to Hollie Hubbert. Her message below has all of the details:


The MMS Ski Club is back. As a first step, I will register MMS with the Winterplace school ski groups at

For those not familiar, Winterplace is a ski resort about one hour and 15 minutes south of Charleston on I-77, just past Beckley. By becoming part of their school group program, MMS students and their families will have the option to receive a weekly ski or snowboarding lesson and weekday evening passes at a reduced rate. There are a variety of package options for the after school 3:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.; five weeks or eight weeks, the day of your choice, Sunday – Thursday or Monday – Thursday for skiing, snowboarding or tubing.  The rates vary depending on the options you choose. All ski and snowboarding options include a weekly lesson and equipment. If children are under 6, a parent needs to be with them for the lesson.

Please see the attached document for more information: Winterplace Ski Club Information

Families do not have to go on the same days and can change the day for which they registered. For example if a family signs up for Tuesdays but needs to go on a Wednesday instead it is OK.  We must choose one lesson time, on the hour, such as 5:00 or 6:00 p.m.

Everyone must register on the same roster, seven days in advance of the start date. Each person/family can pay and receive their passes on their first visit.  Our school participant roster sheet will be submitted to Winterplace on Wednesday, January 10. This would make our MMS start date Tuesday, January 16. For those who want a five week pass the end date will be Thursday, February 15. For those who want an eight week pass the end date will be Thursday, March 8. Once we know the families who will participate we can coordinate possible ride sharing, a preferred lesson time, etc.  I will attend the all-family meeting, Tuesday, January 9 to answer and collect questions, etc.


Please let me know if your child(ren) and other family members are interested in participating by Tuesday, January 9. If you would like to join you will need to complete the last two pages of the attachment: safety checklist and roster information and send it to me or give it to me at the all-family meeting on Tuesday, January 9. If you have questions please email me at, call or text at 304.389.3031 or talk to me at the all family meeting.  Thanks!
