Date Update: Hopkins Ski Club will now meet on Thursdays


The Parks and Recreation Department is happy to offer ski club to Hopkins School students. The program is for Hopkinton residents grades 4-5. Students ski at Nashoba Valley Ski Area after school on five Thursdays starting January 5rd, see schedule below.

Ski club is a life experience with a little skiing. For many participants, ski club is a child's first time participating in an activity without their parents. Participants learn how to navigate independently (with minimal assistance) to find their equipment, to show up on time for a lesson, to follow directions, to make new friendships, and especially to advocate for themselves and others.


Registration
Please purchase the following:
1: Bus pass  - after December 11th, a $20 late fee will be applied
2: Lift ticket or a lift ticket & lesson combination

An on-line release form is required.  This is mandatory for your child to ski in our program. Link coming soon!

Detailed program instructions regarding when and where to drop off equipment, dismissal instructions, departing and returning policies at Hopkins will be sent by December 21st.
