Ski Days

 

Below are the dates for our regular Open Skiing Days for the 2016-2017 season & also where people can Come n Try.

Weather & Conditions Permitting.

 

Due to Australia hosting the Disabled World Championships in April 2017 we have reduced our Ski Days this season, so our Skiers & Volunteers can get prepared & organise this event.

SATURDAY 11 February 2017  –  Manly Dam

SATURDAY 11 March 2017  –  Wisemans Ferry

COOKS RIVER – ST GEORGE ROWING CLUB – 1 LEVEY ST  WOLLI CREEK  2205

MANLY DAM – END OF KING ST  MANLY VALE  2093

 

We aim to start Skiing at 10am, so if skiers could turn up 9.30-9.45am

Cost for First Time Skiers is $50
(this includes your Day Membership $25 + Ski Costs $25 )

Cost for return skiers is your appropriate membership (see Membership menu) + Ski Costs $50.

The $25 (first time skiers)/$50 allows you *2x skis (approx. 20mins per ski) & covers petrol & use of equipment.
*weather & conditions permitting

Extra skis (more then your 2 skis) will cost you $20 per ski, time permitting.
These costs has been partially subsidised.

WE HAVE AVAILABLE 8-10 SKIER POSITIONS PER SKI DAY.

It will be open to the first 8-10 people who contact me & forward their paperwork & payment to myself. This secures your spot.

THE $25/$50 IS NON REFUNDABLE IF YOU DON’T SHOW ON THE DAY.
Making payment up front is to prevent no shows & therefore other people missing out.
If we cancel due to conditions or you cancel at least 1 week before ski day, then the funds will be refunded or carried over to another ski day.

YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A SWIMMER, BUT YOU MUST BE WATER CONFIDENT

There will be a BBQ where you can buy lunch & drinks at Cooks River & Manly Dam.
Also at Cooks River, the St George Rowing Club will be open.
