We are excited to announce that we have finalized the details for the Friends of Meany Ski Bus. We will be partnering with Webbski. Established in 1965, Webbski is one of the most successful continuing ski instruction programs in the Northwest.
General Information: The program will run on Fridays from January 5, 2018 to February 9th. The bus will depart Meany at 4:15 pm and arrive at Snoqualmie Central Ski Resort at approximately 5:30. Lessons (for those who choose to enroll) will run from 7:30-8:45. The bus will depart the mountain at 9:30 and arrive back at Meany at approximately 10:30 pm.
Cost: The cost is $286.50 for transportation and lessons or $158.00 for transportation only. The cost to rent ski gear is $79.20 for 11 year olds and $132 for 12-13 year olds for the entire 6 weeks. The rental cost for a snowboard and boots is $25 for 11 year olds and $30 for 12 and older. Lift tickets are $45 per night ($15 per night for the magic carpet only) for ages 7-12 and $50 for ages 13 and up. If you think your child will ski at Snoqualmie Pass more than 8 times this season, a season pass might make sense. We are hoping to be able to provide scholarships for five students this year, increasing to ten students for each year after. We will have more information on scholarships soon.
Registration: There are three ways you can register your child for this program.
1) On Tuesday, December 12th at 6:00 pm at Meany we will have an information/registration night. You can register your student then.
2) Pick up a registration packet in the front office at Meany. .
3) Call Webbski directly and have them mail you a registration packet.
Volunteering: Thanks to all of you that have indicated a willingness to help get the program started. We will send out a separate email detailing ways you can contribute, including chaperoning.
