Revere Schools Ski and Snowboard Club Information
What is the program and how does it work?
Boston Mills/Brandywine Ski Resort offers students aged 8-18 a season long package that includes a lift ticket, rental equipment (if applicable) and five (5) group lessons. Sessions are four hours long and consist of a lesson with the remainder of the session open to free skiing/snowboarding. After the 5th week, participants are permitted to come to Boston Mills, Brandywine, or Alpine Valley on their scheduled day in their time slot -- Saturdays 9:00AM-1:00PM-- for the remainder of the season at no additional cost. Rental equipment (if applicable) is also included.
Each club member also receives a “Club Card” which entitles him/her to four (4) $10 lift tickets good at Boston Mills, Brandywine, Polar Blast, and Alpine Valley during times other than the regularly scheduled school session. (These are perfect for “snow days”!)
The four "Value Passes" you receive with your club membership are $10.00 each. This is the cost you will pay for a lift ticket each of the four times you use the pass.
NOTE: BMBW will administer an administration fee of $10.00 to each "Value Pass" for all registrations received January 9, 2017 and after. A $10.00 administration fee to each "Value Pass" will also be added by BMBW for any changes made to a Club registration on or after November 19, 2016. (This includes switching from "renter" to "owner" as well as changing from "skier" to "snowboarder".) A snowboarder who wishes to switch to skier status may be permitted to do so as long as the change is made prior to the second lesson.
What is the cost?
Per Boston Mills/Brandywine, club memberships are available ONLY for students aged 8 – 18. (Students must be 8 years old by January 1, 2017 in order to participate. No exceptions.) All registrations are done on-line and are paid by credit card.

What should I do after I sign-up?
You will need to listen to school announcements each Friday to hear whether or not we are meeting on Saturday. After the first week, you can contact Boston Mills at 800-U-SKI-241, 330-657-2334, or 330-467-2242, or visit their website http://www.bmbw.com.
We recommend all participants to take advantage of our new REMIND service, we will send you occasional reminders, and any changes that might occur. Especially if these changes are last minute! Generally, if BMBW is open, we will meet. To join our Remind Group, please visit https://www.remind.com/join/rskiboard.
For the first week of Ski & Snowboard Club, you will need to be at Boston Mills by 8:15AM. Come into the Lodge and look for your advisor's sign. There will be a brief “meeting” to review a few instructions that we have been asked to share. Lines for rental equipment will form shortly thereafter. Lessons will begin promptly at 9:00AM. After the first week, the check-in time will be 8:30-8:45 AM. PLEASE BE ON TIME!
**NOTE: All clubs will meet for 5 sessions. After the last session, each participant will be able to use his/her "Club Card" to ski any time/all day on Saturdays for the rest of the ski season. If the weather does not allow for us to meet, we will make up the session for a total of 5 for the season.
BATH SCHOOL CLUB: Advisors are located straight through the main entrance and to the left (near the snack bar). Please see one of our advisors to check-in and be sure to check-out at the end of the session.
MIDDLE SCHOOL CLUB: Advisors are located straight through the main entrance and to the right. Please see one of our advisors to check-in and be sure to check-out at the end of the session.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER
(or “5 Easy Ways to Stay on the Advisors' Good Side”)
1. Please arrive on time. We ski and snowboard at Boston Mills on Saturdays 9:00AM – 1:00PM. As soon as you check-in with the advisors and have your equipment, you should report to the lesson corral to receive your lesson. Be sure to look for the signs showing you where to line-up. Lessons will begin at 9:00AM. In order to be ready to go, you should plan to arrive between 8:30 and 8:45.
**NOTE: It is critical that you check-in each week with your advisors. Our attendance determines the number of instructors available to us for lessons.
2. Ski or snowboard only in the areas for which you are qualified. (The color of your sticker given by the instructor will tell you where you are permitted to be.) All school club members must receive a sticker during their first week of club lessons. Anyone with a Ski School "Club Card" must take a lesson each week. We all think we are better skiers & snowboarders than we actually are. If you are in an area where you could cause an injury to yourself or others, Ski Patrol may ask you to move. Please do not argue with them. They are trying to keep you and others safe.
3. YOU are responsible for your belongings. Please do not leave anything lying around because it may get stolen or end up in Lost & Found. This includes leaving things on the dining tables, too. Lockers are available for $1.00. (The token machine does not accept quarters, so you will need to bring a $1 bill in order for it to work.)
4. Keeping your “Club Card” is your responsibility. Each club member is given a permanent “Club Card” for the season, which serves as his/her admission onto the snow. It is used to get rental equipment, if the package includes it. “Club Cards” are valid only for the 4-hour session and designated day for which your club is assigned (Saturdays 9AM-1PM). Lost “Club Cards” are replaced very rarely (and never after the fifth week). If a “Club Card” is replaced, the club member will be charged a $25 replacement fee and an advisor must be present.
Each participant’s “Club Card” must be validated with a colored sticker indicating the participant’s ability level. The stickers are color-coded to correspond with the relative difficulty of each slope at Boston Mills and Brandywine. The club sticker program is used for teaching and assessment purposes. Remember, you may not let anyone use your “Club Card” or the equipment obtained with your “Club Card”. Any misuse, including sticker tampering, will result in loss of privileges. Club members will be assessed a fee if on the slopes without a “Club Card”.
5. You need to be off the hills at 1:00PM so that your parents are able to pick up promptly by 1:15 PM. The advisors will leave no later than 1:30PM. Again, be sure to check-out with your club advisor.
We are looking forward to a great season! Remember: Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
