Blue Mountain Ski Resort is closed on Friday, March 2 due to inclement weather. We have rescheduled our final trip of the season for Thursday, March 8 (there is no school on Friday). The buses will leave from the High School at 3:00pm.
If you’ve been taking some great photos that you would like to be included in the yearbook, please share them with Mrs. Eshelman by emailing: EshelmNi@mtwp.net
A meeting is scheduled for parents and guardians of students going on the Vermont trip.
Please join us at 7:00 pm on Tuesday 2/6, in room 017 at the High School. If you cannot make it, please contact us so that we can set up a time to meet with you personally. It is important that we are able to connect with parents and guardians before we go on the trip.
We are looking forward to a great time on the slopes!
Manheim Township Ski Club
There is a ski club storage closet available for storing your ski gear and equipment here at school on the days of our trips. It is the same location as last year, behind the concession stand (in the main hallway from the main office to the cafeteria). Look for a ski club advisor between 7:00-7:25 in the morning, and 2:35-3:00 in the afternoon. The door will be locked outside of those times.
If you are not able to get your gear to the closet before 7:25, please make arrangements to store it in a ski club advisor’s classroom. GEAR CANNOT BE STORED OR DROPPED OFF AT THE MAIN OFFICE.
In planning ahead for the season and extreme cold conditions, you may want to review some of the following tips:
- Wear lots of layers
- Keep skin covered (consider a neck gaiter or balaclava to cover face)
- Take breaks inside to warm up
- Eat high energy foods and stay hydrated
- Ski with two –or more!– others (which is ALWAYS our recommendation)
- Use Hand/toe warmers (get them out a few minutes before using them, so they get nice and warm)
We would like to thank the Lancaster Ski Club for their generous donation to, and partnership with, our club. They have multiple day trips that may be of interest to you and your families if you’d like to check out Elk, Montage, or Seven Springs. Please check out this informational flyer (here), and refer to their website (here) for questions.
