Dear New Durham Ski Club Parents,
Welcome everyone! We will once again be participating in the Outreach Ski Program at Gunstock Mountain on Tuesday night for a four week program. This year again they are including a Student Winter Prime season pass for all participants, 4 weeks of 50 minute lessons and 4 weeks of rentals. Open to children aged 6 by 12/31/2020 up to age 18.
Students will receive a picture id that needs to be with them when they are at the mountain, replacements will cost $5 payable to Gunstock and make the original null and void. The pass is available as soon as Gunstock opens for the season until the season closes.
Parents are welcome to chaperone as skiers or boarders (see FLEX PASS) and are required for children in grades K-3. A Parent/Guardian/Alternate person (18yrs +) is required to stay at Gunstock for the duration of the day each week for all ages, you are not permitted to just drop off your child.
Our session dates will be Tuesday night at 6:30, 1/5, 1/12, 1/19, 1/26 weather permitting (we will ski if it is snowing, but if the roads are too treacherous we may postpone). Our makeup day will be 2/9 if needed.
The pricing for the program will be $299 per child due by 11/21/20, after that a $29.00 late fee. Final registrations due by 11/30/20. If your child will be renting skis or boards and helmets there is no additional charge. You can also ﬁnd rentals for the whole skiing seasons at Piche’s and other snow and board shops including Gunstock, for roughly $100. Especially now that your child will have a season pass, I recommend doing this deal. For more information on the season pass beneﬁts please visit: https://www.gunstock.com/upload/photos/818Pass_Beneﬁts.pdf
In this packet are instructions for logging in and setting up your account for registration and payments online. If you need to pay by check please contact me as soon as possible so that I can ensure the deadlines are met. All waivers and rental information will be online for children, chaperones will need to ﬁll out waivers separately, I have included the chaperone waiver, and if you need a rental waiver you can request one. Again, ALL of the online info should be completed no later than November 22th or you will incur a late fee of $29 pp.
NEW FLEX PASS DETAILS PLEASE READ
In addition, every Season Pass holder can purchase two Flex Passes for $29 each for whomever they choose. It allows the individual to purchase any regularly priced primetime or night lift tickets for 50% off any day of the week ALL SEASON LONG (nontransferable). Also 50% off group lessons, rentals (excluding helmets) and mountain coaster.
It is the perfect choice for parents and chaperones. I highly recommend this, it is worth it on busy weekends as you are able to purchase lift tickets prior to getting to Gunstock so no standing in lines.
Anyone who will be chaperoning must be listed on the chaperone roster at initial sign up before ski season starts and have a signed waiver on ﬁle. If you are not on the list you will not be considered a chaperone. If you are unable to chaperone one week you will need to have a backup (over the age of 18) in place or your child will not be able to ski/board if they are in Grades K-3. A chaperone is required to remain with the children during lessons. Unless you ﬁnd it necessary to attend the lesson each week arrangements will be made with the other chaperones to rotate weekly. Gunstock prefers to have one chaperone during lessons from each group. The ﬁrst timer group they take as many as they can. Lessons are not required but are encouraged, please note your child’s experience level on the signup sheet. Gunstock has modiﬁed their ski levels so please take a look at it. They will be placed in the appropriate lesson, if the ﬁrst week it is noted they are in an inappropriate level lesson it will be changed for the following week. Lesson time to be determined, but will be either 12pm or 1pm.
The forms that need to be returned by November 22th are:
Gunstock Participant Waiver for Chaperones only, Students is ﬁlled out online
Gunstock Rental Waiver for Chaperones only Students is ﬁlled out online
New Durham Ski Club Policies signed
New Durham Ski Club Info sheet ﬁlled out.
Please mail me original Chaperone Waiver and Rental Waiver to PO Box 207, New Durham NH 03855. All other can be emailed.
NEW last year you will have to make sure to start the online process with an adult account. Then you will add the participants as “associates”. If you already have an adult account you should be able to use it, use your passes RFID # from last year and it will pull up your data. However if you used one of your children as the main name and then added yourself you will need to create a new account. If you have issues with this please contact Gunstock. This will be the only time you contact them.
Thank you! We are looking forward to another fun ski season!
