The $10 fee covers a lift ticket, rentals if needed and lessons from the Granite Peak Ski Team coaches from 9am until 11:30am.

After lunch, students who want to can race for free on an official NASTAR course from 12:30 until 3pm during the Mike Roberts Memorial Ski Race. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to the fastest male and female race times in the following age categories: 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, 16-17.
