MMS Ski Club returns for 2019 season
Winter is here and it is time for MMS Ski Club! Here is a a message from MMS parent Hollie Hubbert on this year’s program:
Last year we had 18 participants from Mountaineer Montessori for the Winterplace school groups program. There was a variety of skill levels represented and we had a great time together enjoying the snow!
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 can visit the resort once a week for five weeks for an evening of skiing or riding at a reduced rate, starting at $122, including lift tickets, rentals and lessons. If children are under 8, a parent needs to be with them for the lesson.
- A full mountain lift ticket, valid from 3:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., one day per week, Monday–Thursday, for five weeks.
- All necessary ski rental equipment (boots, skis, and poles) **snowboards are available for an additional fee**
- A helmet for each participant
- A 90-minute beginner group lesson by a professional ski instructor during each visit.
Our official ski day will be Wednesdays and lessons will begin at 6:00 p.m. Lessons are not mandatory, nor is Wednesday attendance. 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 Wednesdays with our group but needs to go on a Tuesday instead it is OK.
Please note, you will be responsible for your own transportation to and from Winterplace. Once we know who is participating, we can coordinate possible ride sharing.
Please let me know if your child(ren) and other family members are interested in participating and I will send you more information on how to register. If you have questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, call or text at 304-389-3031. Thanks!
