Special Information about the 2020/21 HPSC Season
Due to the ongoing pandemic, this season will be different that any we have faced in the past. Our members' safety is of prime concern and we will of course be following public health recommendations. While we will attempt a season as close to normal as we possibly can, there will be some differences.
HPSC Membership rate is reduced for this season to $140 (+GST) for the entire year. There is no early bird special. We are also including a special option for this year: If you have not gone on a trip with HPSC by January 31st, 2021, you can choose to defer your membership to the 2021/22 season. To make this choice you must email firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1st, 2021.
All daytrips this season will be for HPSC members ONLY. We will not be running any Test Drive or Bring a Friend days.
Downhill resort will be running at reduced capacity to maintain social distancing, both on the hill and in the lodge. However, HPSC has been promised a set number of the limited daily spots for our planned day trips. As a result, both members on the bus and those who choose to drive up, will need to register through HPSC. Drive-up members will qualify for the Club group rate. Those with resort passes will also need to register with HPSC even if driving-up to book a lesson.
If allowed by Public Health guidelines, daytrips will run with reduced capacity on the bus. All members will be required to wear masks and stay seated as much as possible while on the bus.
Buses will be fully cleaned by electrostatic spraying by Pacific Western, our bus company, prior to each trip. After arriving at the resorts, the driver will clean and wipe down all high touch areas including seats, windows, window ledges, overhead bins, etc. on the bus. The washroom will be fully disinfected. FYI PWT was chosen by the NHL to transport all of the teams in the bubble cities.
Buses will be available at lunch time so you can avoid the lodge. The bus will then be wiped down again by the driver.
Downhill snow school lessons will have a reduced student to instructor ratio of no more than 4:1.
Downhill snow school lessons will only be STEP 3 and above. This season there will be no beginner lessons (STEP 1 and 2).
Overnight trips have been organized for those who can arrange travel to the resorts on their own. Outdoor parking is available at all resorts at no charge. Charter trips have a new travel insurance option, "Cancel For Any Reason" insurance (CFAR), which would allow you to cancel at any time, for any reason.
High Park Ski Club will not be matching roommates on overnight or charter trips this season.

We try to accommodate everybody on the waitlists by obtaining more space on each trip. You could also get a seat when there is a cancellation, which happens from time to time.
