Ski Club 2018

Greetings all,

With the change in the weather, many of us are excited about the upcoming ski season that awaits us in the nearby slopes of the Andes.


4 YEARS OLD - 5TH GRADE:

After a successful Nido Jr. Ski Club program last year at both Valle Nevado and La Parva we are pleased to offer this opportunity again, as well as an option at El Colorado, if there is enough interest for the minimal quantity as defined by each ski resort.

Please review the the documents with details for the potential Nido Jr Ski Club options at each ski resort: La Parva, Valle Nevado and El Colorado. Then complete the following registration link to record your registration preferences.

2018 Nido Jr. SKI CLUB REGISTRATION LINK (ages 4 years old - 5th grade). Contracts requiring your signature are not needed yet, but will be sent when appropriate.

After examining your requests, compared to the min/max requirements at each ski resort, I will be in touch with you based on the email address and other info you provide in the above registration link. Current 5th graders moving to 6th will be eligible for the 6th - 12th grade program.

6TH - 12TH GRADES (Valle Nevado):

For students, currently grades 5 - 11, who will be in 6th - 12th grade for the 2018- 2019 school year, we invite you to read the following information.

The registration consists of two parts:

1. Completion of the 2018 Nido Ski/Snowboard Club E-Form

2. A signed 2018 Ski Club Permission form turned in to me, Mr. Casey in 5th grade, or into any of the ES, MS or HS offices by May 18th.

The 2018 ski Club dates are: Aug 4, 11, 18, 25, Sept 1 and Sep 8. If one day is cancelled for inclement weather we'll replace it at a later date.

*There are no refunds for classes missed for student absences.

We have many Nido staff members (10:1 ratio) excited to share their passion of skiing/snowboarding with the Nido students for the upcoming season.

For less ($665.000) than the cost of a regular season pass ($700.000 - $765.000) at Valle Nevado, your student(s) will receive:

  • Full Season Pass (the passes will be ready by the end of this school year for use during the winter vacations)
  • 6 days of 4 hours of instruction by certified Valle Nevado Instructors (average size of 10 students per group)
  • Transportation by Ski Total; the most trusted bus company for the road to the ski slopes
  • 25 - 35% discount on Rossignol gear at Nautisport(casa matriz) Av. Las Condes 8606 (effective May 25 approx.)

Additional discounts offered by Valle Nevado (*cannot be combined with other offers/promotions, other conditions may also apply, communicate with Valle Nevado Customer Service as needed)

  • Valle Nevado Hotels: 20% discount at time of booking.
  • Ski/snowboard lesson discounts: 20% off group classes, 15% off private lesson (for use when the Nido club isn't going, like vacations)
  • 20% Discount at the 'Jardin de Nieve' an area/division dedicated to young/beginners(*like those too young for our ski club)
  • 25% discount on Ski/Snowboard equipment gear rental (non-SkiClub days only, there is no time for gear rentals on Nido Ski Clubdays)
  • 20% discount on Valle Nevado brand retail products at Valle Nevado stores

Please let me know what questions you may have, and remember to complete both parts of the application , the 2018 Nido Ski/Snowboard Club E-Form and the this 2018 Ski Club Permission form, by OR BEFORE May 18th to complete the registration process for the 2018Nido Ski/SnowboardClub.

Parents of Ski Club students have access to a 50% discount on Season passes or a 25% discount on the 'Cuponeras': a book of 10 day tickets.

Thanks and take care,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I love the start of school. It brings with it a new sense of possibility, excitement, and challenge.

WELCOME BACK FROM MS PRINCIPAL SHAWE

I trust that your child enjoyed the winter break – traveling, reading (I hope!), sleeping a bit later – and that she/he returned home today excited about the start of the new school year.
