Field Trips

Everyone's Favorite Field Trip!

Hidden Valley field trip program offers students in GRADES 5 - 12 (no exceptions please) the opportunity to learn downhill skiing from our professional, certified ski school staff. Skier Education begins on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018 and runs through early March, 2017 (weather permitting). Field Trips are scheduled Tuesday - Friday (9:00 am & 9:45 am).

Students and  teachers  (Siblings are not allowed to join with the school group) pay only $17.00 for the basic program, which includes ski rental equipment, a beginner lesson, use of the beginner slopes, and lunch. Experienced skiers, with parental consent, have the opportunity to ski the intermediate slopes by purchasing an all slope ticket for an additional $10. Hidden Valley's Field Trip is a fabulous opportunity to learn a lifetime sport for very little cost!

How can my school join the fun? It's so easy … just follow these simple steps!

  1. Fill in the on-line form.
  2. Select the date and time that you would like to come (1st and 2nd choices) Excluding the following dates:  Friday January 12th, Tuesday January 16th, Friday February 16th & Tuesday February 20th.
  3. Determine the number of skiers in each category. Please be as accurate as possible for scheduling purposes. You will be required to pay at least 90% of the reservations booked.
  4. First come first served on scheduling of ski dates.
  5. CHAPERONE LIMIT – The Maximum number of ON-SNOW chaperones will be 1 for every ten students. Chaperones must be teachers.
  6. Hidden Valley has the discretion to limit your number of chaperones if we feel that your chaperone to student ratio is unacceptable. This field trip is for the children and sometimes an excess of outside chaperones takes away from their experience. A LIMIT OF 1 CHAPERONE FOR EVERY 10 Skiers is the maximum limit requirement. Not all chaperones have to ski because it is wise to have some inside help also.
  7. No personal food, beverages or coolers are allowed in the building.
