The weekday field trip-style program is designed for public, private and home school groups and includes ski or snowboard lessons as well as education about winter first aid and the ecology of the Spring Mountain National Recreation Area (SMNRA). Last year, more than 400 students from local schools participated.
The program kicks off in January 2013 and runs through the end of March. The cost is $30 per student with a complimentary chaperone ticket included for every 12 students; groups are limited to 200 students and LVSSR requires schools to provide one chaperone for every 20 students. Scholarships are also available for children whose families cannot afford the registration fee; applications are available at www.skilasvegas.com. Complimentary transportation will be available for schools that book the recommended 30 or more days in advance.
Snow Day includes:
- A two-hour ski or snowboard lesson taught by a PSIA/AASI instructor, lift ticket, equipment rental and helmet.
- Ski and snowboarder safety, cold weather safety and winter first aid course taught by a member of the National Ski Patrol.
- Introduction to the winter ecology of the SMNRA taught by a U.S. Forest Service-trained interpreter.
- Lunch and a cup of hot cocoa at The Bighorn Grill.
The snow sports portion of the program specifically addresses The Nevada Department of Education’s health and physical education content standards. Groups interested in participating can fill out a form online at www.skilasvegas.com or email email@example.com.
