Important Information

Please read carefully!

  • We reserve the right to cancel the program if we don’t reach our minimum of 45 participants.
  • There are No Refunds after the registration deadline.
  • This program requires a large amount of independence from the participants. Parents should be aware of their child’s emotional maturity to handle this program. They must be responsible for all of their equipment and able to make the bus on time. Participants need to ski with a buddy, as chaperones do not ski with the students. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please discuss it with our staff before registering your child.
  • All participants must adhere to our behavior code on the bus and at Bolton Valley Resort. Students who cannot follow the rules may be removed from the bus or from the entire program without a refund.
  • If you have any questions about the program, please call us at 802-985-9551.

Chaperone & Ski for Free!

Please check the box on the registration form if interested or contact the Recreation Department to sign up. You can choose which date(s) you are available to chaperone.
Four Bus Chaperones are needed for each trip to Bolton. Bus chaperones are required to arrive at the school at 2:45 to assist with loading and supervision during the trip. At Bolton, all chaperones must be available throughout the evening to help any child who requires assistance, and to provide supervision in the rental shop, cafeteria, and on the slopes. If you want to ski with the kids, you will be provided with a free lift ticket for the evening. In addition to bus chaperones, we also need an Emergency Driver for each trip. This volunteer takes his/her own vehicle to the mountain and helps on site, but is available to drive a participant back if there is a special situation such as an injury or kid late for the bus departure. Additional Parent Volunteers who meet the group at the mountain are encouraged and welcome. If you register as a volunteer with us, you will be eligible for a discounted lift ticket for the night. Free lift tickets are reserved for the bus chaperones and emergency drivers.

Our program depends on our volunteers! Please help if you can. All bus chaperones and the emergency driver will be required to have a background check in accordance with the Town’s policy.
