Snowsports

2020-2021 Chairs: May Yee and John Franck

snowsports@medinapta.org 

 

This year, due to COVID, we will not be able to have a ski bus take students to and from Alpental. Instead, we have partnered with Alpental to offer Medina-exclusive ski/snowboard lessons. What this means is that parents are responsible for driving their children to and from Alpental. Once the children are at Alpental, Alpental will have a team of instructors to teach based upon the children’s ski level, similar to how Ski Bus has operated in the past.  

 

We are looking for a Snow Sports Co-Chair. Please email us if interested: snowsports@medinapta.org.

Register for Medina Snowsports

 

On November 6, 2020 we will determine whether we will hold Medina Snowsports or cancel. If we reach the minimum number of students, we will then forward a link for payment and registration with Alpental.

 

 

If we are not able to reach the minimum number of students, we will then decide on one of two options:

  1. Cancel Medina Snowsports this year; or
  2. Medina will create our own ski groups and work with Alpental to provide instructors for those groups.

 


GEAR CHECKLIST

You need all of the following equipment with you for ski or snowboard lessons:

  • Ski Pass – attached to jacket
  • Ski Jacket, helmet (must have a helmet) goggles
  • Ski Gloves or Mittens and hand warmers, sweater, long underwear,
  • Ski Socks (well fitting)( wool is great)
  • Ski/Snowboard Pants
  • Ski/Snowboard boots, skis/poles/snowboards- please make sure all equipment fits well,

VERY IMPORTANT: Please check all clothing and equipment for proper fit and function prior to the first lesson. A “dry run” will insure that your child’s first day goes smoothly! Also, it’s a good idea to label every piece of equipment with a name and phone number - we always have so many gloves, goggles, poles, hats, etc. - after every trip...
