Just wanted to send you a friendly reminder that this SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13th is the first training day of the 2015 SnowSchool season!
Our focus for this day will be on SnowSchool activities. Kerry McClay and I will take you through a mock-SnowSchool day to give you an idea of what a day on the snow looks like with the students. We’ll model the Three Essential activities (snow pit analysis, snow water equivalent, and watershed map) as well as a handful of the other experiential activities. Plan to spend most of the day outside.
Bring appropriate clothing to be outside (warm layers, gloves, boots, etc.), snowshoes if you have them (there will be some to borrow at the Nordic Lodge if you don’t have, or want to use, your own pair), a sack lunch (microwave in the Lodge), lots of water, and a pen and paper if you’d like to take notes. Also, you’ll be able to sign up for volunteer leadership days so bring along your personal calendars. The link below is our sign up page on the website so you can take a look at it beforehand:
For those of you interested in carpooling we’ll meet at 8:45am outside of the Bogus Basin sales office (2600 N. Bogus Basin Rd.). Please don’t park in the parking lot, we can park along Parkhill Dr. just north of the sales office doors and right in front of an apartment complex. We’ll plan to arrive around 9:30 at the Lodge and wrap the day up around 3pm.
If you need to leave early that is no problem at all. You are welcome to meet us up at the lodge around 9:30am or just at the carpool and caravan up. Feel free to bring a friend along if you have someone in mind who is interested in SnowSchool.
Thanks so much and looking forward to Saturday. Come on, snow.....
Feel free to email me anytime if anything comes up or you have specific questions.
See you soon,
