Ski & Snowboard Trips

We are excited for our Ski and Snowboard Trips to Vista Ridge this year!

Our trips are for Grades 4-9.  

  • Grade 4 & 5 must choose to ski
  • Grades 6-9 can choose between skiing and snowboarding

Our first trip is on Tuesday, January 21st and our second trip is on Tuesday, January 28th.

  • The bus departs Islamic School at 8:45 am

Please ensure your child dresses warmly and layers appropriately to ensure their safety and comfort.

Students should come to the school with the following:
 

Indoor clothing

  • 2 pairs of socks or 1 pair of thick, wool socks
  • 1 pair of compression pants
  • 1 pair of sweat pants (worn over the compression pants)
  • 1 undershirt
  • 1 t-shirt
  • 1 long sleeved shirt (worn over both shirts)
  • 1 zip-up hoodie (a pullover is fine too)

    Outside gear
  • 1 pair of snow pants
  • 1 winter jacket
  • 1 pair of winter gloves or mittens
  • 1 toque
  • 1 scarf or neck warmer
  • 1 pair of ski goggles or a face warmer

 

If students come prepared they will most definitely stay warm as they ski.  Remember, skiing requires you to be very physically active, so our bodies generate a lot of heat while skiing/snowboarding down a hill.  When you dress appropriately, you will no doubt stay warm!
