What is the cost of participation in the Winter Skiing Unlimited Program?There is no cost to our participants to participate in the Winter Skiing Unlimited program; however, donations are greatly appreciated.
Program Location: All ski trips are held at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. Please meet at the Olympic Room which is located in the old lodge on the lower level past the ski shop at 9AM the day of your scheduled trip. There will be a volunteer in the base room to check you in and give you any instructions you may need. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from Dodge Ridge. A parent, guardian or attendant must bring participant to Dodge Ridge Ski Resort and be available in case of an emergency. Please check road conditions the morning of the scheduled trip to insure your safety on Highway 108 at http://www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi or call 1-800-427-7623. Confirmation & Cancellations: Please remember to call the Society before noon on the business day before a scheduled trip to confirm it is still taking place. Due to severe weather, or an inadequate number of volunteers, the Society must at times cancel a scheduled trip. If you are scheduled to attend and find yourself unable to do so, please notify the office as soon as possible so we can make adjustments to attendance. It is important that you call and leave a message, regardless of the time, so that we do not record you as a “no show.” If you are a “no show” to a trip you are scheduled to be skiing, you will be ineligible to participate in future trips.
Equipment: Adapted equipment for participants will be provided by Society for disABILITIES. Participants must provide their own assistance if they are unable to provide for their own personal needs.
Clothing: Check local weather prior to ski date to see what clothing is appropriate and comfortable. Snow pants, jacket, gloves and hat are recommended. We suggest you bring an extra pair of clothes for the ride home.
Food: The Society does not provide food or drinks during the ski trips. Please pack a lunch, drinks, and snacks for an enjoyable day at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. ALCOHOL is NOT permitted during any ski trips.
