Registration opens October 24th
The Parks and Recreation Department is excited to offer another year of our ski club to the students of Hopkinton.
The Middle School program is for Hopkinton residents in grades 6-8. Participants ski at Wachusett Mountain on Tuesdays, January 9-February 13, 2024. Students depart on coach style buses for the mountain directly from school. If there is no school, there will be no ski club.
Registration requires TWO purchases:
Step 1: Bus Pass, register below - after December 15th, a $20 late fee will be applied
Step 2: Lift ticket directly from Wachusett Mountain via their website.You must purchase a bus pass before you are able to purchase a school group lift ticket. The invoice for the bus pass will contain the access code needed to purchase your school group discounted lift badge.
Cost of the lift ticket is $179. This will increase by $30 on December 1st.
Need to rent equipment?
Here are two options:
Rent from Wachusett Mountain via their website.Skis, snowboards and helmets are available to rent. If you choose this option, your child will pick up and drop of the skis at Wachusett Mountain on each trip. This rental option is the most convenient choice for kids who plan to ski only during ski club.
Rent from a local store. Ski Barn Westboro, Boston Ski and Tennis Westboro, Ski Barn, Shrewsbury or Village Ski, Franklin are great locations. This option is great if your child plans to ski throughout the winter, not just during ski club. Costs vary depending on location.
