How much does it cost?
Each student must pay an OLVCS participation fee of $25. Additional cost is determined by Tussey Mountain and depends on the number of days the student participates, as well as whether or not he/she would like to take ski/snowboarding lessons, have meal card, and/or needs a lift ticket.
My child does not know how to ski/snowboard very well. Can he/she take lessons?
Yes! Lessons are available for an added cost. Parents should indicate what lesson level their child is on the online registration form. Below are the lesson levels:
Can younger siblings or parents get discounted ski tickets and ski with club members?
Yes! Packages may be purchased for family members at discounted club rates, but they must be purchased at the same time as club member packages (see "Paper OLVCS Registration Form"). Parents may purchase only lift tickets or lift tickets and rental packages for themselves and/or children in grades K to 2. NOTE: due to the lesson availability at Tussey Mountain, only children in grades 3 - 8 are able to take lessons during club time. Also, OLVCS Chaperones are only responsible for club members.
How do the club members get to Tussey Mountain Ski Resort?
Parents/ guardians must make arrangements for their own student(s)' transportation to the resort.
When and where do club members get picked up?
New for 2023: Parents/guardians are responsible for picking up their child at 6PM at the resort at the pick-up spot designated by Tussey Mountain personnel. Prior to the first day of club, Mrs. Waltz will contact parents/guardians about the location of this pick-up spot. Club members must alert one of the club supervisors that they are leaving with their parent/guardian, before he/she leaves the resort.
Supervision of OLVCS students is NOT provided after 6PM by OLVCS personnel. Parents/guardians who wish for their child to continue skiing or snowboarding after 6PM must make their own arrangements for their child's supervision.
