Next year’s ski season may not be top of mind for you, but the Bellevue Ski School
team is already starting to plan how we can help your kids enjoy skiing and snowboarding
in a safe and healthy manner next season. We are actively monitoring information from
state athletic guidance,
Washington’s State Superintendent of Public Education and superintendents of our
local school districts (including the
July 22 email from Bellevue’s superintendent)
to ensure we manage our program in a safe manner for this upcoming season according
to well researched guidelines.
Current plans are for a six-week season beginning Jan 16 with students assigned
to either a two-hour morning session or a two-hour afternoon session. There will be NO
bus transportation -- parents will have to drive students to and from the mountain.
Students will be checked in shortly prior to their session and checked out immediately
afterwards. There will be no chaperoned free skiing/riding for MS and HS students.
Parents are free to stay on the mountain after checkout to supervise their students
for additional slope time.
While our program is now allowing out of district students to register, this year we
must restrict eligible students to grades 3 - 12. We CANNOT accept younger students
under any circumstances regardless of skill level or even prior registration with us.
While we are optimistic, please realize that our season plans, schedule and program
design are in flux. We will endeavor to keep you updated as the impact of the pandemic
on our program evolves. Given this uncertainty we have delayed the opening of
registration to November 1 at the earliest.
Give your children the gift of a lifetime of healthy,
invigorating fun on the slopes! Since 1958, Bellevue Ski School
has offered premier quality snowboarding and skiing instruction for students in
grades 2 through 12. We are managed by parent, teacher and community volunteers.
Professional instruction is provided by the award winning staff of
Bellevue Ski School's SATURDAY ski and snowboard
range from absolute beginners to master classes with specialty courses
such as Racing and Instructor Training.
All of our classes are taught at
The Summit At Snoqualmie Ski area.
Elementary and Middle
School take classes and ski/board at Snoqualmie Summit Central.
High School students take classes at Summit Central
and then ski/board at Summit Central, Summit West and Summit East (Hyak).
To be eligible to register with Bellevue Ski School, students must be in
grades 2-12 (ages 7-18) but not restricted to just the Bellevue School District.
Come join us! We're always looking for adults interested in joining a fun organization! Snow sports
skills NOT required -- just a love of safely bringing snow sports to Bellevue students. We are
particularly in need of adult chaperones and safety drivers but we'll find a way to utilize your skills!
We provide any necessary training and support and some fun perks! Please visit our
Volunteer page for details. Positions can fill up so apply early.
Watch for our Volunteer Events where you can learn more about us!
