Let’s Hit the Slopes!

Come be a part of the fun! In conjunction with Station and Prairie Middle Schools and St. Anne School, the Barrington Park District organizes a variety of ski trips for grades 6 - 8. Whether you’re a black-diamond skier or just learning how to walk in those crazy boots, this is your opportunity to hit the slopes with your friends from middle school. Buses will take skiers to the slopes at various locations all around our area. Trips are held on Friday evenings from January 19 to February 16 (the trip on February 16 is an all-day trip). The  Middle School Ski Club gives you a great way to learn a new and rewarding sport and make tons of new friends, too.
