SKI CLUB
 *Norfeldt Aiken Families have a wonderful tradition of skiing at Ski Sundown! Norfeldt Aiken Families is not limited to Norfeldt and Aiken students, this is a neighborhood group. The kids receive a lesson and free time skiing, all at a reduced cost. The program runs for 5 weeks, starting in January and ends in late January or early February. Kids go on Wednesday afternoons (all family members may join), since the kids are dismissed early. Kids will enjoy a lesson and free ski. The program is for ages 8+/3rd grade+, and there are plenty of Norfeldt and Aiken families, Middle School, and High School families that participate, as well as friends of Nortfeldt and Aiken families. Last year we organized a group table with snacks and drinks, details for this year TBD. Transportation is not part of the program but some families do carpool. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to hit the slopes for a reasonable cost!
