Marmot Basin Ski/Snowboard Trip

The grade 7, 8, and 9 students are going on a downhill ski/snowboard trip to Marmot Basin outside of Jasper on Friday, February 23rd 2018. This is an activity relating to their Winter Sports studies in Physical Education. If students do not wish to attend this ski/snowboard trip then there will be activities planned at the school on this day.

Students will need to come properly dressed with ski pants, hats, gloves, etc. Students can bring and use their own ski equipment or it can be rented at the ski resort. Ski helmets are mandatory. Students will receive a helmet free of charge or they can bring their own.

We will be leaving Muir Lake School at 4:30 a.m. sharp on Friday, February 23rd and will arrive at the ski hill at approximately 8:30 a.m. We will be leaving the hill at 4:00 p.m. to return to Muir Lake School at 8:00 p.m. the same day. Students should arrive at the school by 4:15 a.m. in order for equipment to be loaded and to ensure a prompt departure at 4:30 a.m. Students will need a ride to and from school. Students need to be dressed appropriately for the bus ride as well and we recommend that students wear sun protection for all outdoor activities.

Students should eat a good breakfast in preparation for the day. They are welcome to purchase their snacks, lunch and supper at the ski hill, but should recognize that they are costly. They are welcome to bring their own bag lunch/supper and snacks from home. We will not be stopping in Jasper.

The cost to the students will be as follows:

  • $100.00 includes transportation, video-equipped luxury motorcoach, full day lift ticket, ski or snowboard lessons, GST and park pass
  • $24.00 ski, snow blades, or snowboard equipment rental (if needed)
  • Free mandatory helmet (if needed)

Students are allowed to attend as long as the following criteria has been met:

  • Students have demonstrated in the school that their behaviour is such that they would not endanger the safety of others (i.e., following directions).
  • Students must be dressed appropriately for the outdoor conditions and to be outdoors for the entire day.
