September School Holidays
Our last Snow School was another successful school with 25 young people aged 13 and over spend seven days at the SCOUTS New Zealand Lodge at Mt Ruapehu, learning snowboarding, skiing, snow safety, and handy snow tricks.
Students benefitted from the world-class expertise of international instructors from Ruapehu Alpine Lifts (RAL).
Cost: estimated at this stage at about $805 for youth members. (Includes lift passes) The fee may be adjusted when RAL 2013 ski season prices are confirmed.
The above cost is based on no funding. SCOUTS New Zealand will again be applying to various trusts for funding to assist with the costs of lift passes and RAL instructors. If we are successful the above fee will be adjusted.
The Cost Calculator (see below) will provide you with your approximate costs to go on the school. hire of skis, snowboards, clothing etc is extra.
Next School: Sunday 29 September to Sunday 6 October 2013
Applications: On-line applications for the 2013 school will open early March 2013.
