Ski and Board Club 2017-18  

Make-up Day for missing Ski Club on the no school snow day will be after vacation:  Feb. 28

Pickup is at Nashoba Valley Ski Area at 5:00 pm.  Arrange a meeting site with your student. There is no need for a check out procedure.  If you need to see a chaperone, we are located  OUTSIDE in the front of the lodge from 4:55-5:00 and before that we are
INSIDE the Lodge on the first floor or patrolling the slopes with the kids.  If a student is injured we are notified by Ski Patrol and will be with them until you arrive.  

If there is a need for cancellation due to School Closings or Ski Area Closing due to poor slope
conditions, Announcements will be posted here as soon as I receive notification from Nashoba.  Thank you for your cooperation and have a wonderful Holiday Season!
Looking forward to a safe and successful 2017-18 on the SNOW!!!!
