Nordic Valley Ski Day
Friday, 9 Feb, UMA will host our annual Nordic Valley Ski Day. This will be an all-day activity opportunity for those cadets who passed all classes second term. A bus will leave campus at 830am and return by 3pm. Cost for cadets is $30 and that includes skis or snowboards, lessons, a day on the slopes, and transportation if needed. The $30 will be the cost even if cadets don’t need equipment or lessons. Parents who would like to chaperone can get a pass for $20 and rental equipment is available for $20. With appropriate parent approval, cadets may travel to and from the resort with you or on their own. Additionally, your cadet may stay and continue skiing after the event, however, you will be responsible for them and their transportation after the bus leaves. Please make sure those wishes are clear on the permission slip. Cadets should be watching the weather and wear appropriate clothing. They will be excused that morning from wearing the uniform of the day. Cadets will not be leaving the Resort during the event. They should bring a sack lunch or snack if desired or may purchase the lunch package at the resort for $5, and may want to bring additional funds for other snacks. Any cadet or parent wishing to participate should sign up in the office and pick up a permission slip. Payment should also be made in the office or online. All payments should be made, and paperwork completed and returned by close of business 2 February!
