Hit the slopes with us! These fun ski trips to Cascade Mountain are a great way for kids to spend their day off from school. Cost includes transportation, supervision, lunch pass, lift ticket, snow tube rentals and ski or snowboard rental. Bring your own skis/snowboard if you wish; otherwise, rentals will be given. The bus will pick up and drop off at the Monona Community Center.
Hat - if your head is warm the rest of you will stay warmer.
Waterproof Gloves/Mittens - mittens are warmer because they use body heat. Gloves offer more hand mobility.
Goggles/Sunglasses - Goggles are strongly recommended on cold or snowy days for warmth and increased visibility.
Jacket/Parka (water resistant)
Synthetic or wool base layers for top & bottom - it's better to be warm than cold, you can always shed layers. Synthetic materials help to keep moisture away from your skin. Avoid cotton as it retains moisture, dries slowly and does not hold heat well.
Snow/Water resistant pants - very important. Your first day will acquaint your butt to the snow, so keep it warm & dry.
Warm, dry socks - No cotton. Wear only one pair of socks.
Sunscreen - SPF 15 or higher
Snack, fruit, energy bar, water. Staying hydrated is very important.
ID, Wallet, Cash
Extra clothes and shoes to change into when you're all done.
Equipment - If you are not renting: skis, poles and boots; or snowboard and snowboard boots.
