Ski and Snowboard Club Basics

 

Introduction:

Welcome to the ski and snowboard club.  Ski and snowboard club consists of students along with three teacher sponsors who plan to travel to Bear Creek Mountain Resort four times this winter.  The trips are on Thursdays in January and February.  Our club is limited to about 45 or so students per trip (depending on busing) so please be prompt with your return of the paperwork and payment.  We have had some years in which we had to turn away or reduce some participant’s trips.

 

A Typical Trip Day

Students must be dropped off at school with their equipment, and they must bring it into the auditorium.  It will be kept secure there until the end of the day when the students return to gather their equipment, change into their snow clothing, and board the bus with all of their belongings.  The gear and belongings are stored underneath the coach bus or in the back of a school bus depending on busing transportation.

 

We arrive at Bear Creek around 3:00 and are skiing by 3:15 until 7:00pm.  Students ski/snowboard with their friends or other people they meet on their own as it is a very independent club and requires maturity and extra responsibility to be a part of this club.  There is always at least one PV staff member stationed in the main lodge for questions and emergencies.

 

Food 

Students should have some way of eating dinner at the resort.  Students can bring a brown bag dinner or buy food from the Bear Creek Café.  Most students bring about $20 for food if they don’t bring their own food.  There are arcade games there so be sure to reinforce what you want them to spend their money on.

 

Payment Methods

There are two ways to pay.  There is an online payment called a web sale directly through Bear Creek’s Website in which you can get a discount on buying four or six session passes and even season passes, or you can pay by check for each trip individually.  If your child is planning on going on all four trips, we recommend the web sale option to save money.

 

Bus Fee 

There is a separate bus fee needed from each student to pay for transportation to and from Bear Creek via a coach bus from Perkiomen Tours.  

 

Pickup Time:

Parent pick-up is promptly at 8:00pm at the bus-loading platform behind East.
