School offering snow programs

By Kirke Mahy Hestad

The Blaine school district ski/snowboard program is looking forward to a great 2002 ski season. The district is excited to offer this program in conjunction with the Mt. Baker ski area. This is an opportunity for Blaine students to take advantage of the winter recreation possibilities right in our back yard. The program is offered for grades five through 12. The program offers transportation, lessons (optional), and equipment rental (optional).

Classes will be held on four consecutive Saturdays. The four lessons are two hours long; the rest of the day the students ski/snowboard on their own.
The Mt. Baker ski area staff and instructors are professional, experienced, and many are nationally certified. Their main goal for the district ski/snowboard program is to provide a safe, fun, and meaningful experience for students on the mountain. (The school district requires students who have not been snow boarding or skiing, take lessons – this is for the student’s safety.)

This year Mt. Baker has worked with our district to customize our ski/snowboard program. We will be running the bus in March for four Saturdays. Here is the schedule for this years ski/snowboard program: March 2, 9, 16, 23. Departing from Blaine high school parking lot at 6 a.m. It is best to be there by 5:50 a.m. The bus will arrive back at the high school at 5:30 p.m. The student will need to make arrangements to be picked up at that time.

For more information, pick up a ski/snowboard program information packet at the elementary, middle, or high school office, or Kirke Mahy Hestad at 332-8226 or 332-6045..
