Student Life

Ski Bus

The Ski Bus is a parent volunteer-led, optional activity for students in grades 6-8. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn new skills, enjoy the outdoors, build community, practice independence and have fun. Typically the Ski Bus travels weekly to the Summit at Snoqualmie for a 5 or 6 week session, starting in January and ending in February. Students can enroll for transportation only, or they can enroll for transportation and ski lessons.
