*Ski Trip Information

Students should bring their own lunch or money for food (unless they have purchased a voucher). Food and other items should be packed in a plastic bag or tote as paper bags get wet and crumble. Extra mittens and other dry clothes are a good idea.  Please talk to your child about their ability level. This is a high-risk activity. Students attending these activities without a parent need to be able to ski on their own.

Parents are always welcome to ski with us at the group rate (and you may bring younger children, however if you are chaperoning, your children will need to be able to ski on their own.) We will call you if you are chosen to chaperone. We want to give everyone the opportunity, as chaperones will ski free.


Adults attending Bridges trips are not allowed to be in the bar/restaurant areas of the ski lodges or to consume alcohol. This policy is in accordance with the district AODA guidelines.

Chaperones will be given areas to supervise. Chaperones must sign the district chaperone policy.*
