School snow ride program heading to the big hill

By Karke Mahy Hestad

The Blaine school district Ski/Snowboard program, now called the BSD Winter Ride Program is looking forward to a great 2003 winter season. The district is excited to get back up to Mt. Baker and provide opportunities for Blaine students by taking advantage of the winter recreation possibilities in our back yard. We have had a great response to this year’s Winter Ride Program. At this time the bus is filling up fast.

Participation in the program is on a first come, first served basis. There are still places available.

This year the dates for the program have changed. Blaine will now participate in the Winter Ride Program at the regular time (with other districts in our area), starting on January 11 and running for six Saturdays until February 15.

The bus will depart from the Blaine high school parking lot at 6 a.m. and return at 5:30 p.m. Students will need to arrange for drop-off and pick-up.
There will be a mandatory meeting for all interested participants and their parents/guardians on Monday, November 25 at 7 p.m. in the Blaine middle school library.

You will be able to fill out the Mt. Baker ski area paperwork and make payments at this time. This year, you can pay for rentals and lessons via cash, check or major credit card.

The deadline for signing up for this year’s BSD Winter Ride Program is December 4.

Information/sign up packets are available at Blaine middle school and high school offices. If you have any questions feel free to contact Kirke Mahy Hestad at 332-8226 (BMS) or 332-6045 (BHS) or the Mt. Baker Ski Area office at 360-734-6771..
