Ski Trips (5th Grade only)


Courses Youth / Ski Trips (5th Grade only) -
Ski & Snowboard 2022

Enjoy five nights of skiing or snowboarding at Buck Hill in Burnsville for a great package deal! This club is for 5th grade students who just want to have fun, make new friends and improve their skills. The fee includes group lessons for Beginner skiers and snowboarders and an activity fee which covers one way transportation to Buck Hill and activity costs. 

Rental Equipment is included with Option A only. The fee for Option A includes rental equipment and helmet at no extra cost. For all other options, rental equipment is available at Buck Hill at an additional charge ($25/time). If you did not register for Option A and require rental, parents or students will need to bring a credit card for the ($25) rental to Buck Hill each session.

Transportation: The buses will pick-up after school at all elementary schools. Parent permission for early release of students at Jeffers Pond, La ola del lago and Glendale will be requested. Students will be escorted to bus by a chaperone. The transportation is one-way. Students need to be picked up at Buck Hill by the clock tower no later that 7:30 p.m. Supervision of students will end at 7:30 p.m. There will be a before school equipment drop-off site (trailer) at La ola del lago at Grainwood (back of school) (address: 5061 Minnesota St Se, Prior Lake) for all equipment. Students are not allowed to bring any equipment on regular school buses. Equipment drop-off time is 7:30-8:15 am. Please label and secure equipment together for safe keeping. A ski or snowboard bag is highly recommended to guard against scratches. 

Meals: Outside food is not allowed. Please send money to purchase dinner items such as hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, etc. ($5-$7). Money can be placed on a Buck Hill debit card also. 

Cancellation: Due to adverse weather conditions – ski trips can be cancelled after your child has arrived at school. If school closes early – no ski trip…If all after school activities get cancelled – no ski trip. In these cases your child will be notified by a school announcement and will be sent home according to his/her normal routine. As a parent – be prepared!!! If you dropped off skis or snowboard – the pick-up will be the next morning from 7:30 to 8:15 a.m. (the usual drop-off time) at Grainwood – but pick-up at the front of the building. We always have the trailer moved up to the front door and extra patrol so skis/boards are more secure. If you cannot pick up your child’s equipment – please make arrangements for an alternate plan – neighbor, friends, etc. It makes it very hard to store equipment for a week in the school and we can’t guarantee its safety…If all other plans fail – you can call. If you are in doubt on a cancellation – call 952-226-0310. Normally we do not cancel unless the school does the cancellation. One more reason to make sure your child has warm clothing and face covering in some situations. Frostbite can happen quickly – your child is reminded of this by chaperones – but make sure they have adequate covering.  New this year: there will be no individual make up sessions or refunds.

Chaperones: Parent chaperones are also needed each date listed below. Volunteer chaperones can receive an optional free lift ticket (for the evening they volunteer) if available (numbers are limited). Parent volunteers are recruited and background checked to assist students as needed.

Activity Fee: The activity fee allows PLSAS to facilitate weekly field trips to Buck Hill, where open skiing, lift tickets, optional lessons and equipment rental are available to registered students. Please note that PLSAS Community  Education is providing access to these activities, but they are not PLSAS programs or staff. PLSAS Community Education does provide 1 staff person as a resource and point of contact for students.

Helmet Rental (Helmet included with Option A). Other package options rent directly at Buck Hill. 

No Refunds after December 13, 2021. Processing fees will be deducted from any refund.
