Kids line up for Friday Program

Kids line up for Friday Program, in which students at Stowe Elementary, Middle and High schools can take to the slopes Friday afternoon.

The Stowe Friday program is a go for 2021-2022.

First graders through 12th graders have enjoyed the opportunity to ski, snowboard, swim, Nordic ski, play tennis, bowl and skate on Fridays during the winter since 1952.

Volunteers are needed to make the Friday program work. Dates are Jan. 7, 14, 21 and 28; Feb. 11 and 18; and March 4, 11 and 18.

Commit to all eight days — or as many as you can — and there’s no need to be an expert at any of these sports, just a willingness to support kids in the community.

The greatest need is for volunteers to be on the hill with ski and snowboard groups at Spruce Peak and Mt. Mansfield. There are some great benefits to volunteering to lead a group. Not only get access to ski or ride on Friday program days, volunteers can also earn a day ticket after completing two chaperoned days — up to four earned tickets. Earned days will be restricted on Saturdays and holidays.

If you are interested or have questions, contact Dot Hayden at or 802-253-4154.
