Grouse Mountain Ski Program – Gr. 5 & 6

Hi Everyone:

Listed below is some important information regarding all 4 days (Jan 8, 14, 22 & 30) of our Gr. 5 & 6 Ski Program.

All students are to be dressed for the mountain and at St. Paul’s for attendance @ 7:25 am on ski days.   The buses will depart for Grouse at 7:30 sharp.   If your child is ill and unable to attend, please email the school office, classroom teacher, and me by 7:00 am.  

Winter boots are recommended as we do have to walk in the snow from the top of the gondola station to the rental building. Students should dress in layers so as to be able to adjust their clothing for comfort depending on weather conditions.

All parent supervisors are welcome to join us on the school buses for transportation to Grouse Mountain.

Students who have their own ski equipment are responsible for loading their gear into the luggage compartments of the school bus and are responsible for their equipment throughout the course of the day.  Students who have a Grouse Season Pass are responsible for making sure they have their pass with them on school ski days.

Students may wish to bring a small backpack to hold their lunches, water bottles and any extra items (socks, gloves, goggles etc.) Backpacks may be left in the rental building while the students are skiing. Students will not be permitted to purchase food or beverage items at Grouse Mountain.

We will depart Grouse Mountain at 2:00 pm to return to St. Paul’s. Our hope is to be back at school by 3:15 pm, depending of course on traffic conditions.

Here is the link to the Grouse Mountain website should you be interested.  There is some helpful information, a trail map, and a mountain weather forecast to better prepare for the day.

Feel free to contact me at should you have any further questions regarding this program.  I’m really excited about getting out on the mountain tomorrow with our students!
