Wednesday After School Program
Grades 4-5 join your friends and our crew of certified Crabbe Mountain ski and snowboard instructors for fun on the snow this winter.
The Crabbe Mountain Wednesday After School Ski & Snowboard Program is a unique, six week full service program which focuses on skill development, learning and FUN! This is an excellent way for your child to continue an active lifestyle during the winter months.
Snow School instructors will greet the children at designated anglophone district west schools. The instructors supervise the students on the bus, at the ski area and on the ride back. They then stay with the students until they are picked up by parents at the designated drop-off areas.
Dates: Starting January 11, 2017 to February 15, 2017 with February 22nd and March 1st for a make-up days if there are any cancellations. If program goes pass the two cancellation dates, another date will be set.
***Please note: There will be NO REFUND if your child misses a day or if they are unable to participate on the cancellation dates provided by the Snow School.
We encourage you to register as soon as possible as we only accept 110 students and this is a very popular program.
Cost: $310+hst= $356.50

Students must bring a lunch to be eaten on the bus, or before while waiting with the instructor. Cafeteria snacks may be purchased at Crabbe Mountain only after instruction due to time restrictions. Instructors will not be responsible for carrying student’s extra spending money.
Students must have their own ski pants, warm jacket, warm ski gloves, hat and warm dry socks. Ski goggles would be an asset. As well, students may bring their own ski/snowboard equipment on the Trius bus, however parents should contact the school to confirm they can bring their gear to school. Keep in mind, students are not allowed to take skis/snowboards on Anglophone District West school buses to school in the morning.
If a student is being picked up by a non-family member, a note must be written by the parent/guardian to the Principal and the Crabbe Mountain staff. All students will return on the bus unless a note is presented by the School Administrator. This is for safety concerns.
The Wednesday After School Program will be postponed on Days that children’s regular school is cancelled or if a possible storm could affect driving conditions at the time of return for the bus from Crabbe Mountain. The school will be contacted the morning of such an event. Days that are missed due to storm cancellations will be made up for further in the season.
