Dear Skiers and Snowboarders,
This Friday was suppose to be our first ski day but, unfortunately, the frigid weather is too much. After the snowstorm on Thursday, the forecast for Friday is the wind will pick up and the temperature will plummet into the single digits such that the windchill will be -12 or below while we are at Wachusett.
We will cancel this Friday and reschedule to ski on February 16.
If you still wish to go to Wachusett on your own on Friday, you can receive 50% OFF lift and rental purchases when you present your student RFID Program Badge to Customer Service or the Group Sales Counter. Please contact me if you wish to pick up your badge.
For an updated snow report and other mountain information see the Wachusett website: http://www.wachusett.com/
A few general reminders for next week:
I have the Student Lift Badges and they will be handed out on the bus on ski days. If you have a Season Pass (Bronze, Silver or Gold), please make sure you bring it with you. If you haven’t picked up your season pass yet, you can meet me at the chaperone table as soon as we get to Wachusett and come with me to Group Sales & Customer Service to pick it up.
Parents picking up their children at Wachusett MUST send me an email or give me a note by Friday morning. Then, when you arrive at Wachusett, you MUST stop by the Chaperone table anytime before 7:30pm to let us know you have arrived to pick up your child. I cannot leave a child at Wachusett without a parent present (we are very serious about making sure no one is left behind).
Please put your name and “Pepperell” on your equipment, helmet, goggles, gloves and other items. Many items are left in the lodge at the end of the night and I don’t have any way to know if they belong to someone from Pepperell without a name.
All busses return to Nissitissit Middle School between 8:50pm and 9pm. We will be waiting out in the cold so please be on time.
There is more information on the Ski Program website: https://pepperellski.wordpress.com or let me know if you have any questions.
See you next Friday!
Coordinator, Pepperell Ski Program
