General Information

Ski Program for 3rd and 4th graders

Ski Dates are:


January 9, 16, 23 and 30

February 6, 13, 20 and 27

March 6


Students sign up and pay on Monday mornings EVERY week they ski.  If a student does not bring money on Monday morning, they will not be able to ski that week.


There are no buses that transport students from elementary schools to the Jr High School.  Parents will be responsible to arrange transportation from the child's elementary school to the Jr High to meet the bus. 


Students can still join the program after the first ski date; however they must wait one week to ski once all signed forms have been handed in.  This allows time to get the information to Caberfae Peaks. 


Registration includes permission slip, signed rental form and liability form.

A liability form must be signed.

A remind group has been set up for this to help with communication. Please send a text to 81010 with @elemski in the message.


Information was sent home with your student, please contact the office.  Packets may also be picked up in the office.
