WEDNESDAY AFTER SCHOOL SKI & SNOWBOARD PROGRAM
*ATTENTION PARENTS* The Afterschool Snow School Program has been canceled for January, 10th, 2024. Make-up date is February 28th, 2024. An email has been sent to all parents, if you did not receive one please contact snow school at email@example.com for further information.
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.
A Supervisor or parent volunteer will greet the children at one of the designated Anglophone West District schools. They will supervise the students until they get onto the bus. Staff will then supervise the bus ride to the ski area, during their instruction time at the ski area and their ride back until they are picked up by their parents at one of the drop off locations listed below.
Dates: Starting January 10th, 2024 will run to February 14th, 2024. With two cancellation dates of Feb. 21 & Feb. 28, 2024. If the program passes the two cancellation dates, another date will be set.
Here are the list of designated schools where Crabbe Mountain picks up from:
1. New Maryland Elementary
2. Liverpool Elementary
3. Priestman Street Elementary
4. Garden Creek Elementary
5. Connaught Street
6. Gibson-Neill Memorial
7. Royal Road Elementary
8. Park Street Elementary
9. Montgomery Street School *Newly added.
We encourage you to register as soon as possible as there will be only 75 students accepted in this years’ program. If your child does not attend one of these schools but would like to participate, parents are allowed to take their child to meet with the bus at one of the listed pick up locations to participate but the parent will need to wait for the arrival of the bus with their child.
Cost: $349.99+hst = $402.50
Includes: Ski/Snowboard rental, helmet (mandatory), lift ticket, approximately 3 hours of instruction per week, as well as supervised bussing to and from Crabbe Mountain. (*Please note there is no discounted price for those who have their own season pass or equipment.)
There will be NO REFUNDS if your child misses a day or is unable to participate on cancellation date(s).

*Students will have time to eat their lunch when they arrive at the mountain. Children are not able to eat on the bus or they may not have time at school while waiting for the bus to arrive. Cafeteria snacks may still be purchased at Crabbe Mountain only after instruction due to time restrictions and there may be limited options available to students.
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 West District 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 the students’ regular school is canceled 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.
We are looking for a few parent volunteers to wait with students until the bus arrives at some selected schools, as we may not have instructors available for each school. This volunteer time would be for a maximum time of 30-35 minutes each week of the program. The volunteer would need to meet the children when they are dismissed and gather them in their designated area within the school and wait with the children until the bus arrives. If you are able to volunteer please contact the snow school.
