Online Sign-Up for everyone!
We will be participating in the online sign up program this year.
All members of club will need to purchase an online Ultimate Wednesday pass, and then pay for transportation during sign up week. This will eliminate the need for registration forms and give your parents an opportunity to earn credit card points for sign up fees.
Regular paper sign-up will NOT be offered this year!
Keep in mind that transportation fees can be added to any online purchased pass option. ($170 for 8 trips with Niagara Scenic)
This will get you 8 Wednesday nights with the club.
Early Online Sign-ups are guaranteed a spot on the bus!
Note to Parents:
What a great way to get your kids out of the house on Wednesday nights in the winter months. It will give you a chance to go see a movie, have a dinner night out instead of cooking, or just relax on the couch in front of the fire with a book. This club is not just for the experienced skier or snowboarder. Each club attendance night, the students are entitled to sign up for one free lesson, from beginner to advanced. It is part of their paid membership. All you have to do is pick them up at 10:15 in front of the school, we will take care of the rest.
Friends and family can also take advantage of club rates. Passes can be purchased through the school and will be delivered to you in the mail. It will not include bus transportation, but what a great way to save a few dollars when planning your winter fun. Unfortunately, I can not offer the student season pass rate to anyone outside of the Lancaster school system. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase a ski package.
Check in the "Club Forms" section to the left to view all of your Ultimate pass options.
