Q: What do I need to bring on Friday nights?
A: We have NO guarantee of access to the building when we get back.   You need to pack EVERYTHING for the weekend.   Your schoolbooks/backpacks should go with us in the bottom of the bus.
Q: When do we get back on Friday nights - when should our parents pick us up?I've heard its late...
A: We return to the cafeteria door between 11:15 and at 11:30 p.m.   Parents - please make every effort to be on time as the chaperones can't go home until the last student is safely away.
Q: Do we ski alone?
A: Once you get your lift ticket, you are on your own until its time to board the bus for home.   HOWEVER, we want you to ski with a buddy at all times, and remember - school and ski patrol rules apply!   Students can reach chaperones via radio through ski patrol at any time.
Q: What do we do with valuable stuff like iPods?
A: Only bring what you need into the lodge.   Leave everything else on the bus.   The bus is locked and secure.
Q: What should I wear?
A: HELMETS ARE MANDATORY.   Beyond that, wear whatever keeps you comfortable in the cold.
Q: Should I bring money?
A: That is up to you.   If you wish to buy food, prices are standard for ski areas - that is to say, a bit expensive.   I'd expect to pay $10 for a burger, fries, and drink.   You can also bring in food, and many of us do.   That said, be it known that few things are as special as a Pats Peak Cookie!
Q: What's a great ski song?
A: The Chad Mitchell Trio recorded this little gem called "Super Skier." years ago!
