HJMS After School Ski Program Register View Cart

Registration for this program begins Wednesday, October 3 at 8:00am. The first 50 participants registered are guaranteed a spot in the program. A waiting list will be created after that. If we reach a waiting list of at least 35 students, and are able to find a sufficient amount of chaperones, we will set up a second bus. See below for more information. When registering online you will be prompted to print out and complete Ski Sundown’s Program Agreement form. This form will need to be returned to the Rec Dept within 1 week of your online registration date in order for your registration to be fully confirmed. Form is also listed below under FORMS. Failure to return the signed form to the Rec Office will result in your child’s spot in the program forfeited and fee refunded.

Registration ends October 29, 2018! All forms must be received within 1 week of you signing up for the registration to be finalized.

Ski Program Notices and Policies
Please read the following info on registration, refunds, and our behavior policy. You must answer yes that you have read and understand the policies to proceed with this registration.

1. REGISTRATION IS LIMITED to 50 students on a first come, first served basis. Students who register after the first 50 will be put on a waiting list until we have a waiting list of at least 35, then the second bus will be confirmed as long as we have enough chaperones to cover a second bus. The Simsbury Recreation Dept reserves the right to lower the registration limit of the program for the purposes of having ”full” buses only if there are not enough participants to justify the cost of the bus rental.

3. REFUNDS For BUS SEAT from Rec Dept. will only be granted for medical reasons (meaning child is unable to ski for the remainder of trip schedule, doctor's note is required). Refunds will not be granted if a child cannot attend a trip; however, their ski badge will be eligible to make up the missed day.

SKI SUNDOWN'S REFUND POLICY: (This applies to all fees except the $ for the bus seat) Full refund less $25.00 administrative fee will be given if request is made in writing and received by Ski Sundown from the group leader prior to January 2, 2018. No refunds or credits will be given after this date unless the protection policy criteria are met. The protection policy is added to your program and will reimburse the cost of your program on a prorated basis in the event of injury or illness that prevents your child’s completion of the program. The illness or injury must be confirmed by a letter from a licensed physician, and the refund request must be received from the group leader prior to end of season. Program changes can be made at no charge up to the start of the program.

4. TRIP CANCELLATIONS will be announced at the school on the day of the trip and also via the email address that you use for this registration. If school is closed due to the weather conditions, the trip is canceled. Make-ups will be rescheduled if approved by Ski Sundown.


RULES

1. ANY STUDENT WHO IS MISBEHAVING, DISRESPECTFUL, USING VULGARITIES, OR ANY OTHER DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR, OR WHO, IN THE GROUP LEADER’S OPINION, IS DETRIMENTAL TO THE TRIP, WILL BE BANNED FROM THE PROGRAM. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED FOR THESE REASONS. IT IS ALSO THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO RETURN TO THE BUS AT THE DESIGNATED TIME. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN A SUSPENSION FROM THE PROGRAM WITHOUT A REFUND

2. SKI EQUIPMENT must be brought into the school through the gym lobby entrance of HJMS and will be stored in a locked closet in the hallway where the girls’ locker room is located. At the end of school students should go and gather their equipment and meet the buses out in the back parking lot by the soccer fields. Skiers will not be allowed back into the school when they return from Ski Sundown. They should plan to carry along anything they need to take home. Telephone calls are not allowed in the school.

3. Buses will leave Ski Sundown at 7:00PM. It is the parent’s responsibility to be at the HJMS school parking lot at 7:30pm. Skier will forfeit package if parent can not comply.

RENTAL INFORMATION
  • For participants who need to rent equipment:
  • Make sure to put the proper shoe size on the form. It will make the rental process much quicker on the 1st day.
  • Make sure to wear proper socks for skiing and snowboarding. Socks should be calf height or higher, made of wool or a blend, and participants should only wear 1 pair of socks for the most comfortable fit.
  • Pants must be wide enough to cover the boots.

LOST AND FOUND INFORMATION
The best way to mark your child's name on skis and snowboards is with duct tape.

If your child loses something on a trip, Ski Sundown now has a link on their website which will allow you to email them directly about the missing item.

The page can be found here: http://skisundown.com/BaseFacilities/LostFound.aspx

SAFETY TALK INFORMATION
If you are interested in hearing the Safety Talk that the Ski Sundown staff provides to the participants on their first day, you may join them on November 29 at 7:00pm at Ski Sundown.

LESSON LEVEL INFORMATION
If you are signing your child up for lessons, please select only 1 level. If you are unsure, go with the lower level, and the instructors at Ski Sundown will move your child to a correct level if needed.
