Snow Sports Club

Holly Middle School/Holly High School -Snow Sports Club

Winter 2016-2017

Holly Middle School will once again sponsor a Snow-Sports Club this winter at Mt. Holly.  The purpose of the club is to give students the opportunity to learn proper ski and snowboard skills through a graduated patch program at discounted rates. The club provides the chance for experienced, as well as, beginner skiers and snowboarders, to learn and experience these exciting winter activities. This year, we are extending the program to include Holly High School students.  All 9-12 graders interested in joining the club are welcome to share in the benefits of reduced student prices at Mt. Holly.  All the same rules apply.

Join the Club!

The cost to join the club is $25.  By joining the club, students will receive a student club card with either two ski lessons or one snowboard lesson.  The student club card can be presented Monday through Friday after 3:00 p.m. at Mt. Holly for discounted rates.  Students will be responsible for purchasing their weekly lift tickets, additional lessons, or renting equipment. The cost of joining the club will also include one-way transportation from school to Mt. Holly on each Tuesday club night.  Students must arrange for a ride home.  Parents need to complete the attached permission slip and emergency contact form, while students need to read and sign the responsibility code before our first trip to Mt. Holly.

Tuesday Club Nights

The club will travel to Mt. Holly every Tuesday afternoon beginning December 6, 2016, weather permitting.  Mt. Holly is located at 13536 Dixie Highway in Holly, Michigan.  We will arrive at Mt. Holly at approximately 3:15 and stay until 7:30 p.m.  Each child must be picked up at Mt. Holly by 7:30 pm!  There will not be any student supervision after 7:30p.m.  Students should be dressed appropriately for the weather.  Hats, gloves (waterproof), winter jackets, and snow pants are essential!  It is also HIGHLY recommended that all students participating in either snowboarding or skiing wear an approved helmet.  Students should also bring a snack/dinner to eat or money to buy food/drink in the cafeteria.  Sponsors can be found in the ticket lobby, the upstairs cafeteria, or out on the slopes.  The Mt. Holly Ski Patrol can be reached at 248-634-7853.

Patch Program

Students are encouraged to take lessons and earn patches that will allow them on the slopes that are appropriate for their level of skill.  Lessons are included with the student club card and additional lessons may be purchased.  Patches should be sewn onto the student’s coat sleeve.  Lessons begin at 5:00 and 6:00, and run about 50 minutes.  There are a total of seven ski lessons and four snowboarding lessons to help build skills.  For further information regarding specific skills learned in each lesson please visit Mt. Holly’s website ( Patches cost $2.50 and do not need to be purchased every year!

Equipment, Rentals, Lift Tickets and Transportation

Students may bring their own equipment with them to school on Tuesdays or rent equipment from Mt. Holly.  However, students WILL NOT be allowed to bring their equipment aboard the morning bus to school.   Parents will need to drop off the equipment in the Holly Middle School gym between 7:00 - 7:35 a.m. where it will be stored safely until the afternoon.  No equipment will be accepted after these times.  Students will be allowed to purchase their lift tickets and rentals before school in the gym or in the ticket lobby at Mt.

HHS students providing their own transportation will meet the Snow-Sports Club sponsors in the Mt. Holly ticket lobby to purchase their lift tickets, rentals, and/or lessons.  HHS students that plan on taking the bus must also bring their equipment to Holly Middle School for storage during the day no later than 7:35 a.m.  There will not be storage space at HHS and no equipment will be allowed on the transfer bus to the middle school.  High school students will take their bus to the middle school and meet in the gym to board the bus to Mt.
