Bunker Hills Club
We are excited for an another wonderful year of skiing!!!
2021 Schedule and Location
Due to COVID-19 we will be starting our club online virtually this year due to COVID-19 (more details to come later). Please see the updated schedule below.
It will be a different year, but we are hopeful that everyone has fun on snow and stays safe!
Our February meeting location is at the Bunker Hills Golf Course.
If you rented equipment from MYSL this year we will be sending out information in the first part of December about a pick up time.
Please contact Jeremiah at firstname.lastname@example.org with an questions.
Weather and Cancelation Policy
We will not ski if the air temperature is below 0˚ F, the wind chill is below -10˚ F, or at the leader's discretion. Cancellations will be sent out by email to the address provided at registration. Cancellations will not be rescheduled.
Dress your child appropriately for the day's weather. Start with good ski socks. Younger children that fall more easily could wear snow suits if there is new snow. Older children should wear layers: polypropylene or moisture wicking under layer, insulating fleece or wool layer, and a non-absorbent wind proof outer layer to cut the wind and keep out the snow. Warm hats and mittens are mandatory. Please use your discretion noting your child's activity level and the outside temperature/wind chill. Often a winter jacket and snow pants or a snow suit are too warm once the child gets skiing.
Kids in levels 3, 4, 5 and 6 should have and carry a water bottle. Parents should carry bottles for the younger kids in levels 1 and 2. These kids go pretty hard and get dehydrated quickly. As they will drink sweet tasting liquid more easily in the cold, consider GatorAid or PowerAid.
This is a volunteer run club and we need all the help we can get to be on snow in February! The success and affordability of this program comes directly from your contributions of time, energy, and talent. By registering for this club, you are committing to the club's success and are agreeing to volunteer.
Level 1 skiers will need to be accompanied by a parent. Coaching at level 1 is a great way to accompany your child.
+++Please consider coaching or assistant coaching as it is our number one need! You do not necessarily need to coach at your child's level. Please e-mail Jeremiah at the club e-mail if you can help. No experience necessary+++
Following are some needed areas of volunteer service:
Coaching is one of the more enjoyable volunteer opportunities. The MYSL program makes it easy for a coach to know what to do. An eight week curriculum has been prepared for every class level and each day's lesson. The guide also provides many helpful tips and games to keep classes enjoyable and interesting. You do not have to be an elite level skier to be a coach. All you need is a desire to help kids and have fun. We really need your help! If you are considering to volunteer as a coach, please contact me. It is important to finalize our coach count early.
Assistant and Sub Coaches –
Parent tag-a-longs for all levels. Assist skiers as they learn to put on and take off skies. Walk or ski alongside the group and give encouragment.
Each adult skier (16 or older) is required to have a MN State Ski Pass $6/day or $20/season. More information can be obtained at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/licenses/skipass/index.html.
We will meet each week at the golf course (a parking pass is not required).
