2022-2023  Wintermeister General Information

What is Wintermeister?

Wintermeister is one of the highlights within the elective program at Seven Peaks, providing our middle school students the opportunity to ski or snowboard on Friday afternoons. Our goal is to foster mature behavior, safety, accountability, and community while enjoying an exciting sport in the outdoors at our local mountain. 

When and where does Wintermeister take place?

Wintermeister takes place on Fridays at Mt. Bachelor beginning January 13, 2023. The program concludes March 17, 2023. Students will participate in these ten sessions: 1/13, 1/20, 1/27, 2/3, 2/10, 2/17, 2/24, 3/3, 3/10, & 3/17.

Student Gear

Students will bring all their snow gear (ski/snowboard clothing, helmet, skis, boots, snowboard, goggles, gloves, season pass, etc) to school each Friday for Wintermeister. There will be racks outside the commons for poles, skis, & snowboards. Students can store their boots & clothing in the commons. When students are released for lunch at 11:45, they will eat lunch & dress for the mountain. Students will line up outside by the buses, ready to load around noon. Staff will check students in as they load the buses. No ski boots allowed on the bus. 

When we arrive at the mountain, students can change into ski boots outside the bus, grab their gear and head to the slopes with their riding partners. Students in group ski/snowboard will gather together before leaving the bus area and walk to the chairlift as a group. 

Ski Bibs

Students will be wearing our new SPS Wintermeister bibs this year. We will make arrangements for students to receive bibs before January 13th. Students are borrowing bibs and will need to return them at the end of Wintermeister. There will be a $30 fee for lost bibs. Students are required to wear bibs at all times on the mountain, even in the lodge, over their top layer of clothing. If a student does not wear a school bib they will be excluded from the next week of Wintermeister. 

Option to get to the mountain: Bus

Students must ride the bus to the mountain. Students are expected to have eaten lunch & be dressed in snow gear to load the bus around noon. 

Options to return to SPS: Bus or parent driver

Students have the option to ride home from the mountain with a parent driver. Parents need to let us know this information on the weekly google doc. Parents must check out with Sam between 3:45-4:00 pm. Bus riders should head to the bus by 3:45pm for a 4:00 pm departure. Students will return to SPS parking lot by approximately 4:30pm. 

What is the cost?

We will not know the exact cost until we have a final participant count. We anticipate the cost to be around $350 per student. No refunds for weather cancellation or if your student misses a day.
