Breakfast :  Bring your own and eat on the bus

Lunch :      The lodge at the mountain has a cafeteria with semi-reasonably priced food, OR you can bring your

     own lunch and avoid the VERY LONG lines.  Also, by 12:00 there are very few seats left in the cafeteria.

Dinner:      You will probably be hungry when you get back on the bus.  Bring snacks and drinks.  Extra items may be

     left on the bus during the day, but you won’t be able to retrieve them until departure time.

___________________________________________________________________________________

5:15 AM     Arrive at The Independence School parking lot, select a bus and load any personal ski equipment onto

the bus.  Get on and claim your seats.  Parents and guardians must ride on the same bus as your

children.

 

5:25 AM     Group Leaders take attendance.

 

5:30 AM     Buses DEPART for 2 hour & 30 minute ride to Jack Frost.  

      We will show a family friendly video on the way up.

 

8:00 AM     Arrive at the Mountain.  Group leaders head into the office to pick up the tickets.  This takes about

15-20 minutes to sort out the tickets so please be patient.  This is a good time to get into your warm

clothes and make sure you have everything you will need.  The bus drivers usually enter the lodge to

     relax so don’t plan on coming back to the bus prior to departure.  

 

A member of the Jack Frost staff will enter each bus and give a brief chat about the mountain and answer any questions.  If you have a child that is in a 3-hour lesson please make sure you are aware of the location you need to take that child.

  

      If you brought your own equipment you may disembark and get your gear. 

      Otherwise PLEASE STAY ON THE BUS.

 

8:15 AM      The first folks to get off the bus to receive their tickets will be those with a child in the 3-hour lesson. 

       DO NOT STOP IN THE RENTAL AREA  ---  GO STRAIGHT TO THE CHECK-IN BOOTH FOR THE

      3-HOUR LESSON WHERE YOUR CHILD WILL RECEIVE THEIR EQUIPMENT.  AFTER your child is

      checked-in you can return to the main rental area to outfit yourself. 

      The lesson begins promptly at 9:00 AM.  If your child is not checked-in and equipped by then, they

      cannot join the lesson.  NO EXCEPTIONS. The next 3 hour lesson is in the afternoon and by the end of

      that lesson you will probably miss the bus back home.

 

10:00 AM    Group Lesson begins

 

3:00 PM   BUS  DEPARTS

 

                 By 2:30 PM you should be headed in to return your rental equipment and QUICKLY pick up

     any coffee or drinks.  We want to leave at 3 PM to allow sufficient time to get home before the

     SuperBowl kickoff.  Please be on the bus at 3 PM.  Your neighbors and fellow football fans will

     appreciate your sense of courtesy.

 

   We will show a second video on the way home and expect to arrive at Independence by 5:30 PM
