Homeschooler’s Ski Days
Sierra At Tahoe
Contact: Janice Sinclaire 857.3031
Please note that I must receive your payment 2 weeks in advance of each
trip. I do not want to accept checks or cash up at the ski lodge, because I’m
afraid I’ll lose it or it will be stolen, so please mail it to P.O.
Box 1170, Healdsburg, CA 95448. Please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org;
Pathways Families: Please check with your IST for each trip before
contacting me, and also please have your IST send me an email telling me
you have the funds available. Pathways will generally pay for up to 4 days of
skiing each year, but since the family budgets are so low this year, you may
not have the money available that you think you have. Please double check
with the school.
The confirmed dates are January 11 and 12; February 22 and 23; March 15
and 16. We are again at Sierra At Tahoe resort, which has many runs for
beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Sierra is off Highway 50, about 2
hours from Sacramento. Feel free to bring food and leave it in the lodge
- we’ve been doing so for years and I don’t know of anyone who has had
things stolen. We meet in the Aspen Café, the lodge part at Sierra At Tahoe,
at 8:30 am, sharp. I will wait until the last ticket is passed out, and then I go
off to ski with my family. There is no mechanism available to hold tickets
until later, unless you have a friend pick them up from me at the correct
RATES and SKI SCHOOLS:
* These rates have been confirmed by Sierra At Tahoe
**Students must be at least 7 to snowboard in the ski school.
1. Regular package for 13 years and older (includes adults): $47 - includes
group lesson if you want it (about a 2 hour lesson), rentals, and all day lift
ticket: skiing or snowboarding. Please indicate whether you will do the
lesson, as Sierra has to know how to staff the lessons. Also indicate
beginner or refresher type lesson.
2. Wild Mtn. Ski School, ages 5-12:
½ day is 2 hour lesson, rentals, all day lift ticket: $47 All Day is until 4 pm,
includes lunch, all equipment, tickets, lessons: $63
*Wild Mtn. Ski School is a separate little ski area right next to the lodge.
Parents often have their kids in Wild Mtn. while they ski. IF YOUR 5-12
YEAR OLD NEEDS A LESSON, THIS IS WHAT SIERRA’S
INSURANCE REQUIRES YOU TO DO, NOT THE GROUP LESSON IN
THE REGULAR PACKAGE. Older kids or kids who pick it up quickly are
taken out on the chair lifts with the schools. Some parents who are good
skiers simply buy a harness for their child and teach the child themselves.
**Students must be 7 or older to snowboard in the school.
3. For ages 5-12 there is also a special rate for a lift ticket only: $16
4. For ages 5-12 there is also a special rate for lift ticket/rental only, no
These packages are open to all homeschoolers and their friends and
families. Please contact me if you have any questions. Email is best and
most appreciated, but phone works too!

*Names and ages of each participant (just say “adult“ for the adults).
*Which package for each participant.
*Whether each participant will do the lesson.
