Ski & Snowboard Clubs
Lyon Ski School has opened the door to snowsports to over 30,000 students with our school district programs.
We began our first school district program in 1964. Today, 50 winters later, the tradition continues in the form of our popular Ski & Snowboard Clubs.
Clubs operate on Fridays after school and Saturdays, picking-up students at local schools and busing them to Stevens Pass to ski, snowboard and enjoy the mountain environment with friends.
Each year we donate a portion of registration fees back to participating clubs' schools. We have raised over $20,000 combined for the parent organizations at those schools MORE...
Overview of the Club Programs
Ski & Snowboard Clubs - 7-week program: beginning Friday, January 8 or Saturday, January 9.
All sessions run consecutive; weather, road and snow permitting.
All children K-2nd must be accompanied weekly by a paid adult, 21 years of age or older with a signed release from the child’s guardian.
Children grades 3rd-12th do not have to be accompanied by an adult.
Children grades 3rd- 5th, not accompanied by an adult must take lessons.
Unaccompanied children, 6th grade - senior may participate in "Transportation Only". However, they must demonstrate skiing/riding proficiency & knowledge of the Skier’s Responsibility Code.
All first-time beginners must take lessons.
Failure to meet the minimum skill level would require enrollment in lessons. Additional fees would be required
Classes will be formed based upon age and skill level. The average class size is 7. A minimum of 5 is necessary to run any given class. Weekly evaluation of all students will allow us to monitor individual performance and improvement. We will be able to change students’ class placement accordingly throughout the season. We will accommodate special requests so that friends may be together, as long as it is safe to do so.
Transportation will be provided by chartered bus. At registration, students are encouraged to list 2 friends they wish to be placed with on the bus. We will do everything possible to honor your requests recognizing there are limited seats available on any given bus. All buses will have at least 2 adult chaperones (21 years old and above). See "Guidelines for Participation" and the "Bus Schedule" for more specifics.
Chaperones are recruited from the administrative, teaching and parent populations. Our Head-Chaperone is in charge of chaperone scheduling, student disciplinary issues, loading/unloading procedures and all other responsibilities associated with the parking lots. Chaperones must submit an informational background form and list of references as well as participating in 3 hours of pre-season training. Chaperones are responsible for the immediate safety and well-being of all on their bus. They must enforce Ski School, Ski Club and School District Rules and Rules and Regulations.
On the mountain there will always be at least 3 people on duty at any given time; in the lodge, in the meeting area and circulating the lodges and first aid areas.
All participants in this program will need lift tickets. Those are purchased through Stevens Pass directly.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
The director, managers, head chaperones are all linked by cell phone so that we may be in constant contact. We also have an area for leaving notes, tracking instructors in case kids come to class late and an extensive system for tracking injuries, absences, parent notes etc. See "Guidelines for Participation" for more details.
