This year, BYOS (Bring your own snow)


A five-week after school ski and snowboard program for Berlin students on Thursday afternoons will begin Thursday at Ski Ward in Shrewsbury.

Sponsored by the Recreation Department, the program is offered to students ages 4 and above and features several levels:

* Small Tracks - a one-hour lesson for children ages 4 to 7 that begins at 3:30 p.m.
* First Tracks - a one hour lesson followed by one hour of free skiing or snowboarding for students in second grade and above that runs from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
* Level Three and above - skiers and snowboarders can opt out of lessons.

Prices range from $60 for lift tickets only to $225 for ski or snowboard lessons with rentals. Participants who complete the first tracks program are eligible for one free Ski Ward lift ticket.

Information and applications are available online from the Town of Berlin.
