Club Program

Boston Mills and Brandywine offer season-long Club Programs for skiers, snowboarders and snowbladers ages 8* to 18. The Club Program includes 4 hours of slope time per session, equipment rental (if applicable) and up to five lessons. For the first five visits, club members arrive and depart as a group with their club advisor. Afterward, club members are welcome to continue visiting on their designated day and time (at no additional charge) using your Club Card

Clubs begin in January, as determined by BMBW, and continue to the end of the season. If BMBW must cancel one of your five guaranteed club visits, we will schedule an additional session for you. Individual make-up lessons are not available.

*Must be 8 years old by January 1, 2015.

Club Cards & Lessons

Club members are given a permanent Club Card for the season, which serves as their admission onto the snow and is used to get rental equipment, if their package includes it. Club Cards are valid only for the 4 hour session and designated day that your club is signed up for. As a club member, keeping track of your Club Card is your responsibility! Lost Club Cards are replaced very rarely, and never without an advisor or after the fifth club visit. If a Club Card is replaced, the club member will be charged a $25 replacement fee.

Each participant’s Club Card must be validated with a colored sticker indicating the participant’s ability level. The stickers are color-coded to correspond with the relative difficulty of each slope at Boston Mills and Brandywine. The club sticker program is used for teaching and assessment purposes.

Remember, you may not let anyone use your Club Card or the equipment obtained with your Club Card. Any misuse, including sticker tampering, will result in loss of privileges. Club members will be assessed a fee if on the slopes without a Club Card.

 

Value Passes

Club members, except for those with Season Passholder packages, receive four $10 Value Passes that can be used towards any of the following:

  • An all day snow pass at Boston Mills/Brandywine or Alpine Valley
  • A snow tubing session
  • A late night session

Club Cards must be presented at our pass windows by the person whose name appears on the card, but any of the Value Passes obtained may be used for a friend or family member if desired. They may not be resold. You can use all four Value Passes at once, and any snow pass you obtain includes rental if your Club Program package includes rental.


 

Gear Up

You can buy your Club Program package with or without ski or snowboard rental* and if you are a beginner, we highly recommend the rental option! Renters must stay on the type of equipment chosen at signup when using their Club Card. Failure to return rental equipment results in a loss of privileges for the next visit and a replacement charge.

*Snowblade rental is not available. Sled dogs, Big Feet, Snowrunners, etc., are not permitted in the Club Program at all.

 


 

Safe Learning - Fun Environment

While skiing and snowboarding can be a great, fun experience, it's important to practice safe riding on the slopes. Ultimately, safe skiing and snowboarding on the slopes is each person’s responsibility. Always be respectful to your fellow skiers and riders.

A warning may be issued for safety reasons, including skiing or riding out of control, or for disciplinary reasons like snowball throwing and the use of foul language. If you receive a warning, your club advisor must accompany you to reclaim your Club Card for the following session. Some offenses, and any second warnings, result in the loss of privileges with no refund.

Your Responsibility Code, shown below, is a partial list. Be safety conscious and courteous at all times.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY CODE:

  1. Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

 


 

JOIN the FUN

The Club Program is the most heavily discounted program at BMBW, with savings of almost $400 over the standard snow pass, rental equipment and lesson price. There are NO REFUNDS on this heavily discounted program for any reason, including student removal from the club due to disciplinary reasons invoked by the club advisor, BMBW Ski Patrol or BMBW Management.

Pricing depends on the day and time your club visits, and the type of package you need.  Foreign exchange students and Season Passholders may take advantage of special packages as noted below. (Pick-A-Day Passholders are not eligible.)
