A Notice to All JTL Riders going to Shawnee!
To help keep parents informed, we are implementing a new technology called "REMIND". In the event we have an important announcement for ski club members, this is an easy way to get updates especially if you need to make scheduling changes last minute because ski club gets canceled. Click HERE to see instructions to sign up. It takes less than 15 seconds, and the end result will be, YOU WILL ALWAYS KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON!
For 25 years, the students and several teachers at JTL have run a ski and boarding club to Shawnee Mountain each January - February. We get a multi-visit package which allows us access to the mountain over a period of six consecutive weeks. The purpose of this activity is to give students an opportunity to get some great exercise at a VERY reasonable rate and to promote the sports of skiing and snowboarding. Shawnee is an outstanding mountain to learn on. The trails are wide, and the conditions are exceptional with the mountain utilizing the newest snowmaking technologies. Additionally, for students who have experience on the mountain, the Bushkill and Country Club terrain parks are a great place to catch some air and work with a great number of course stunts. If you are new to the sport of skiing or boarding, the lessons are set up so the essential skills that are required to ski and board in control, and maintain a safe environment are taught. Shawnee has the BEST team of trainers in the Poconos and they offer exceptional deals to get people on the mountain.
The multi-visit club package Shawnee offers is lower in cost than any other mountain in the area, yet they provide excellent rental equipment for those that don't own their own equipment. Our relationship with Shawnee has been exceptional over the many years we have worked with them to get JTL students on the slopes. Additionally, our district transportation does a great job offering us a ride to Shawnee since they are located in our district, we are not charged for transportation. This means our costs stay low so we can offer a great package at a very reasonable price
