School Trip Information
SKI IN SCHOOL
The Crabbe Mountain Ski in School program is a unique and beneficial addition to your Physical Education curriculum. Exposing students to skiing or snowboarding is a great way to promote an active lifestyle during the winter months. As well Skiing/Boarding provides an individual physical education opportunity for those who are not as interested in team sports allowing them to experience an activity that can develop into a healthy life long recreational pursuit.
The Crabbe Mountain Ski in School Package includes 2 hours of ski/snowboard instruction from our experienced and nationally certified instructors. Ski/snowboard equipment rentals including helmets will also be provided along with a lift ticket valid for the entire day.
At the end of lessons instructors will assess the students’ abilities. Students will then be given a sticker identifying which trails they can go down. Students taking part in the Ski In School program are only allowed on Blue or Green trails during their visit, No trees, Terrain park, or Black Diamonds. Students must be accompanied by supervisors when skiing after lessons. Supervisors are encouraged to take part in lessons alongside students to better understand hill safety. Ski Patrol will be monitoring the mountain at all times during your schools visit.
Cost: $25 per Student. Students with their own equipment and/or Season’s Pass are required to pay $10.00 and Crabbe Mountain will sponsor one child per visit.
(Teachers/ TA’s and parent volunteers monitoring students on snow will receive free Skiing/ snowboarding and rentals to a maximum of one complimentary package for every eight students.)
*Please note that the ski in school rate is only available to trips organized through the school system, and is limited to weekdays during the regular school year. This rate is not available to community groups or organizations. Please see the Group Bookings page for the appropriate rate and information.
