We want you to be a member of Michigan Adaptive Sports for 2011 it is only $25 and it helps us maintain equipment, pay insurance, buy new equipment and basically keep MAS going. If you are not a member write and check and send it in with a “Membership form” and a check for $25. Fees are for lesson/rental member fees are $25 per lesson; non-member fees $30 per lesson. There is an extra charge of $5 for each lesson up north. Please note that prices are the same whether or not a lesson is needed.
Upon receipt of your registration materials, acceptance into our ski program will be determined. As discussed in pre-registration materials, participants will need to have certain minimum abilities to be accepted into the ski program, and we reserve the right to not ski individuals whom we feel are inappropriate candidates for our program. Registration information, phone conversations, or possibly evaluation during a ski session, will help us determine appropriateness, if there is doubt. Once accepted, we will try to accommodate your schedule as much as possible with regard to dates and times for skiing. Unless we need to talk to you further regarding your registration materials or acceptance into the ski program, you can assume that you have been accepted. You will probably not hear from us until close to the time of your first lesson. At that time, you will be contacted by email regarding the time of your lesson.
Lessons are somewhat variable in length, with time allotted at the beginning for evaluation and equipment set-up. We want to get you with the instructor and/or out on the hill as much of the lesson time as we can; therefore, we ask that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. This will give us time to pull out your registration materials and get you set up with your ski instructor/ski buddies, etc. We will clarify the time you need to be there when you are scheduled.
Our local ski clinics are at Pine Knob Ski Resort in Clarkston. In case you are unfamiliar with Pine Knob, it is north of Pontiac off I-75. When traveling north from the Detroit area, exit at Sashabaw Rd. Turn right onto Sashabaw, and Pine Knob is right there on your right. If you need further directions, the number at Pine Knob is 248-625-0800. When you arrive, come in the main entrance and continue down the ramp past the window where lift tickets are purchased. We will be in the room closest to the hill on the left side of the hall. Please come to the registration table when you arrive. If, at any time, you are unsure if we will be skiing on a certain date due to weather conditions, please check the website or face book. It’s important that I know as soon as possible about cancellations, as we may have people on a waiting list to take that time, or else we may need to find other things for your instructor/buddies to do during your session. We pre-arrange volunteer instructors/buddies who give of their time to ski with you, so please be considerate about notifying us of changes in your plans. If you need to cancel please email Carol Mac Luster or email@example.com.
Participants and families skiing at Shanty Creek/Schuss Mountain can make reservations at “The Summit” 1-800-678-4111. We have a group of rooms reserved and you can get a great price by mentioning that you are coming with Michigan Adaptive Sports. You may call Crystal Mountain Resort at 1-800-YOUR MTN to make a reservation. Please ask for the Michigan Adaptive Sports rate. Please note, for the March weekend, a two night minimum stay is required to get the group rate. When you get to Crystal, check at the front desk to see where our group is meeting on Saturday. We are usually at the front end of the ski rental building, on the level above the rental area.
If you change your mind about skiing with us this year, we would appreciate it if you give us a call as soon as possible, so we don’t put you into the schedule.
We look forward to hearing from you soon, and seeing you on the slopes!
