The Pro Ski Snoqualmie Valley Ski Bus will provide 6 weeks of transportation by bus to the Summit at Snoqualmie (Summit Central). Students must sign up for all six weeks but do not have to attend all six sessions. Please note that no refunds will be given if your child cannot make the bus on an individual Thursday. The bus will run on the following consecutive Thursdays: January 12, 19, 26 and February 2, 9, and 16. There will be a system in place to drop off gear at the school in the morning before school. 

The Pro Ski Snoqualmie Valley Ski Bus is providing transportation ONLY.  Lessons are not provided as part of this service.  We advise everyone to ski with a buddy.  We request that students in grades 6-8 not skiing with a buddy use only the Holiday and Gallery lifts. Each student is responsible for providing their own lift ticket or season pass each week. In addition, students are responsible for bringing their own ski/board gear or paying for a rental package. We are looking forward to another great ski season!

FAQs

Will you head up to the Pass if it is snowing or raining?

Yes, we will go even if it is dismal and raining...bring your rain gear!

What if I-90 has been closed during the day before a ski/board session?

I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass closes for many reasons. Before each session, we will assess the weather, road conditions, and recent closures and make our decision based on safe traveling conditions. Please be aware that this section of freeway closes regularly for avalanche-control work, which does not necessarily mean that conditions are unsafe for road travel. In the event of planned avalanche-control work, we will obtain information from the DOT and the Summit staff about their timeline and location and then make our decision. You will be contacted by e-mail or there will be a sign at the drop off place telling you the bus is cancelled.

What if I-90 closes unexpectedly while the students are up at the Pass?

If the DOT decides later in the day, due to changing conditions, to do avalanche-control work, the resort makes an announcement to all skiers/boarders to head down the mountain and provides an estimated time of freeway closure. In this event, all students are to return to the bus immediately, and all coordinators and chaperones assist in getting all students back to the bus and departing quickly. If the road closes before we leave the hill the DOT gives priority to buses when convoying down the hill.

If the ski bus is canceled, how will you let us know?

If you think there is a chance we might cancel, please pack your car as planned but look out for signs posted at the school entrance informing you of the cancellation. Also we will send an email message.

If school is cancelled, is the ski bus cancelled?

Not necessarily. Most of the time, when school is cancelled in Snoqualmie Valley, it is either because there is a risk for road travel or flooding. In either of those cases, it is just best to stay home and avoid the mountain roads. However, occasionally closures occur for other reasons and may still allow for the ski bus to run as scheduled.

Will we make-up missed ski bus sessions?

We will make every attempt to make up any missed sessions, but this will be dependent on timing and bus availability.  If 2 or more weeks are canceled, prorated refunds will be made

What if an emergency occurs on the mountain?

If your child is involved in any accident the ski patrol will be called to take care of and assess the incident. The ski patrol has the contact numbers of the coordinators of the club and we will be called right away. We are either on the hill skiing, by the fireplace at summit central, or in the lodge. You will be contacted to determine next steps. There is an emergency chaperone on the mountain with a car and in many cases can transport your child to meet you at the school or at the Snoqualmie Valley hospital.

How can students contact a chaperone?

Some weeks there may be a chaperone sitting by the outdoor fireplace at the Summit Central plaza or in case of bad weather they are in the lodge looking out over the fireplace. They will also have cell phone numbers of all the coordinators.

Are helmets required?

Yes, helmets are required! And don't forget to make sure goggle lenses are suitable for night skiing/riding.
