Third Ski Club Trip This Friday, January 23, 2015!

posted Jan 21, 2015, 5:52 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club
Snow is expected Friday night into the day Saturday up at Liberty Mountain, making skiing and boarding even better!  So, expect Ski Club to be on as planned unless roads to the north of Montgomery County are deemed impassable or dangerous. In the unlikely event that ski club is cancelled, we will send out an e-mail, post it, and make announcements at school.    

If you have any questions not covered in the packet or this e-mail, please We will try to answer within 24 hours.
Friday Drop-Off Ends at 8am Sharp

Friday morning between 7:15am - 8:00am in the lower parking lot by the tennis courts, we will be accepting bags and ski equipment for storage.  
Please make sure your students name and phone number is on every piece of baggage.  Also, please be considerate of non ski club drivers by not blocking the entrance to the school, nor using the main drop off area for ski club.  

If school opens 2 hours late, morning equipment drop off is 9:15am-10:00am.
Skiing/Boarding While Snowing...

A water resistant/water proof outer layer is a must when it is snowing.  Plus good ski gloves and, of course, a helmet.   

Don't forget to pack food/drinks for the bus, and send money/food for dinner.

Want your student to take lessons?  They are at 5:45pm and 7:00pm.   Make a deal that they earn some privilege by showing you their punched ticket, which proves they took a lesson at Liberty Mountain.
Chaperones & Junior Chaperones

NBMS Parents and WJ upper-classmen will be serving as chaperones on the trip.  Responsibilities for chaperones and students are clearly outlined in the information packet.  Your student is responsible for his/her behavior and safety.  Chaperones serve as guides, not supervisors, throughout the trip - especially once at Liberty Mountain.  Please have a discussion with your child about smart decision-making, for everyone's sake.  Safety is our #1 priority - make sure it's your child's as well.  Thanks!
