By: Nancy Coke (2013/10/23)
Each year I organize the purchase of discounted group ski passes as a fund raiser for CHEO and Elizabeth Bruyer Hospitals. Anyone is welcome to sign-up. Read below for the detailed information.
PURCHASE DEADLINE: DECEMBER 1st, 2013
DISCOUNTED PRICES FOR 2013-2014 SEASON
Adult (18 to 59yo) - $130.44 (regular price $180)
Senior (60 + yo) - $86.95 (regular price $105)
Student (18 to 24yo) - $86.95 (regular price $105)
Youth (13 to 17yrs) - $78.26 (regular price $90)
Children 12yrs of age and under - free
Family - you do not get an extra discount by registering with Team Blizzard (maximum 2 adults and 3 children)
STEPS TO REGISTER:
The group name is: TEAM BLIZZARD
2. Enter the group code: skiboot!! (yes, you need to use small case letters and put in the two exclamation marks)
3. Demsis charges an additional $2.50 service charge. This fee applies regardless of whether you apply on line or at the Visitors Center in person.
A donation box will be located at Fresh Air Experience. When you pick-up your pass you will be asked to give a small donation (suggested amount $4 to $5 per pass). Over the past 12 years we have donated a few thousand dollars to CHEO and Elizabeth Bruyere Hospitals just in time for Christmas.
PASS PICK-UP AT FRESH AIR EXPERIENCE:
The passes should be ready for pick-up at Fresh Air Experience on Wellington Street (West of Holland) by December 10th. Please note the passes will not be mailed to your home, you must pick them up at Fresh Air Experience.
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who might be interested. If you want to Facebook it or tweet it, go right ahead.
On another note, the Outdoor Education department at my High School (Merivale HS) is in need of donations. If you have any equipment that is in relatively good shape and looking for a new home please send it our way. You can drop it off to the main office (1755 Merivale Rd). Examples of items would be: wax and /or waxless x-country ski's (sorry but no 3-pin bindings), ski poles (even single poles will be accepted), ski boots, snowshoes, warm clothing, camp stoves, tents, tarps etc.
