I'm sorry to report that the Summit at Snoqualmie is CLOSED for tomorrow (January 25th 2018) due to utility problems. A make up date will be scheduled.
From the Summit at Snoqualmie Site:
January 24, 2018: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT AS OF 9:30PM: The Snoqualmie Pass Utility District has given us an update regarding our water supply. Unfortunately, we are now looking at a prolonged outage of water supply for both The Summit as well as Snoqualmie Pass. With no water to operate our facilities, we will have to remain closed on Thursday for day and night operations. Again, we will not be open for skiing and snowboarding on Thursday, January 25, 2018. This is an unfortunate and complicated situation not only for The Summit at Snoqualmie and our guests, but also - and most importantly - for the residents of Snoqualmie Pass, all of whom are currently without potable water. Snoqualmie Pass Utility District crews are working through the night and into tomorrow to resolve the water outage situation, and we will update you all as soon as we know more.
The entire Summit crew is here to provide skiing, snowboarding, Nordic and tubing activities and it is disappointing when we're not able to do so. We do appreciate everyone's patience as we await more information and updates regarding the water situation and we all look forward to getting up and running again as soon as possible. As always, please check back to our website for all updates. Thank you!
Students who attend 1st period at the main campus will drop off their gear in the storage room near the band room, this includes freshman who have 1st period at the main campus. After school, those freshmen will need to take the school busses to the main campus, pick up their gear, and board the ski bus from the main campus.
All freshmen who attend 1st period at the freshman campus will drop off their gear in the storage room behind the AVID room. Signs will be posted to help freshman find this room. Parents will not be permitted to drive behind the school. Please drop off students in the student drop-off loop and have students walk around the school to the storage room.
Before getting on the buses, freshmen may leave any school bags they don’t want to take to the pass in Ms. Hecox’s room (904).
Remember student's who do not have a helmet or have not signed up for the Remind App will not be allowed on the bus.
Please be at the Freshman Campus bus loop/gazebo by 2:30 Thursday afternoon, or at the Main Campus gazebo by 2:45 Thursday afternoon.
Thursday February 16th is Club photo day! Don't forget to wear your best gear!
Snoqualmie pass is currently closed in both directions between Cle Elum and North Bend. Although conditions may improve, for the sake of the charter company, and students whose parents would not me available to pick up their gear after school, I have canceled ski club for today.
There will be a make up trip after Mid-Winter break. I will announce the date of that trip later this week.
If you start at the Main campus, please drop your gear off before school in the custodian storage room near the band room. If you do not know where this is, please see the front office for directions. Freshman starting at the Main Campus will need to take the main school busses to the main campus after school, get their gear, and wait to be picked up from the main campus.
If you start and end at the freshman campus your drop off is before school in the staff lounge. I have included a map below. Please see the front office for directions. After school, get your gear, and then meet at the bus loop by 2:30pm.
DO NOT FORGET YOUR HELMET. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE BUS WITHOUT ONE.
PARENT PICK UP: We plan on returning bewteen 7:45-8:00 pm. We will stop at the Freshman Campus first, and then continue to the main campus. You may pick up your student at either campus, just make sure to comunicate with them so they know where to get off of the bus. My suggestion is the freshman campus so that you don't have to deal with the construction changes at the main campus.
It looks like I was able to secure the larger bus which means that I can accept all 50 students who applied for ski and board club. You will soon be getting an email, to your student email acount telling you that you got in and outlining the next steps you need to take. This email will also let you know if there are any aditional costs due to the larger bus. I am working with the transportation department to determine if I need to charge more than the $90 to pay for the larger bus. If this is the case, it will likely be $10 per student, making the total fee an even $100. (This sounds like a lot more, but we are still charging less than the other schools offering similar services.)
Thank you to everyone who has turned in their forms and check. Registration is officially closed. We had 50 students register but currently only have 43 spots available. I am working on getting a larger bus so that I can accept all 50 students. You will soon be recieving an email letting you know your status. If you are one of the seven students on the wait list, I will send you a follow up email before winter break letting you know if I was officially able to secure a larger vehicle.
If I am unable to secure the larger vehicle, those on the wait list will recieve a refund of their full $90 payment. You will stay on the wait list in case someone else drops out and a spot opuns up. In this situataion I will contact the first person on the wait list and offer them the spot. They will need to bring in their check ASAP. (If a spot opens up after ski bus has already started, you will only be charged for the remaining trips.)
Once you get your email announcing that you are officially part of the Mount Si High School Ski and Board Club, please follow the directions to sign up for remind101. This is what we will use to communicate while on the slopes.
Thank you all for your time and patience. I am really looking forward to this season.
Thank you to everyone who turned in their forms today. Anyone who turned in their form today has automatically been accepted into Ski and Board Club. I will be sending out emails on friday to everyone in Ski Club, so please check your school email.
There only five spots still available, four of which are saved for Sophmores, Juniors, and Seniors. After the finance office is closed on Wednesday, any open spots will be available to anyone on a first come first served basis regardless of grade.
This is a reminder that you may turn in your check and liability form starting tomorrow Monday December 5th. Remember that both your check and liability form must be turned in before you are considered a club member. After the maximum amount of members have been reached, the office will no longer accept checks and forms. Because forms are accepted at both campuses, if you are one of the last students to turn in your form, it may be accepted after the limit has been reached. In this case, you will be contacted and your check will be returned. Email announcements will go out to all club members early next week that will outline the rules and policies and what to expect the first day. Please be sure to ready this email and follow directions as it will include a phone number that can be used in case of emergencies or to let me know if you cannot make one of the trips.
I look forward to seeing you on the slopes.
I wanted to thank the 20+ Freshman that came to the informational meeyting today. Remeber that all forms and payment needs to be turned to to the main office at either campus. You may turn it in as soon as Monday December 5th.
If you haven't purhased a ski pass yet, you may do so for a discounted price by following the instructions on the information page. (There is no longer a paper application for the discounted pass).
Please let me know if you have any questions.
