FAQs • Field Trips

Should I sign my child up for lessons before the school goes on the field trip?
Answer: Not necessary. Most of the students involved with the field trip are brand new to the sport.

Can my child rent a snowboard?
Answer: Snowboard rental is available for $26. Your child should be a proficient rider since snowboard lessons are not part of the field trip package. Some schools choose to make the field trip a ski only experience.

What will my child do about lunch?
Answer: Buck Hill has a cafeteria in the main chalet with a wide range of options. Prices vary from about $2 – $6 per item. You may send cash with your child or put money on a gift card. Students are also welcome to bring food, drinks and snacks from home.

What should my child wear?
Answer: Dressing in layers is best. Have your child avoid wearing denim jeans to school on the day of the field trip. Snowpants are great for keeping your child warm and dry. A good pair of gloves or mittens (nothing knit) is a must. Helmets are highly recommended but not required. A helmet is a great safety measure and also will keep your child warm. A warm hat needs to be worn if they will not be wearing a helmet.

How do I contact my child in case of an emergency?
Answer: You may contact the ticket office at 952-435-7174 x 610 or the Ski & Snowboard school at 952-435-7174 ext 709. Both areas have the ability to page someone over the intercom. We will also do our best to track down the coordinator of the group to help locate your child.

What if my child has a season pass?
Answer: They will need to get their lift ticket in the Buck Hill ticket office. There may be an additional cost associated with your club for busing, etc.

Are snowboard lessons available?
Answer: No, this is an alpine adventure and snowboard lessons are not available.

May my child stay at Buck Hill after the group has left? Can my child return to Buck Hill later?
Answer: If the school administration will allow a student to stay at Buck Hill after the group leaves, their lift ticket and rental is good for the entire day. If a student leaves Buck Hill and returns at a later time on the same day their lift ticket is valid for the entire day but they would need to re-rent the equipment for $26.
