The Junior Instructional Snow Program provides local school children K-6th grade an affordable way to learn to ski or snowboard. Stratton continues to partner with the JISP program for the following local school children who attend Jamaica Village School, The Mountain School, Grafton Elementary, Newbrook, Townsend, Windham School and Home Schooled children living in a town that is associated with one of the above schools
If your child wishes to participate in Stratton's JISP program during our winter sports weeks please click the sign-up link below.
The program is heavily dependent on adult on-snow chaperones. By volunteering your time as an adult on-snow chaperone you will also receive the heavily discounted pass (same 18 days of skiing). You don't need to be a pro skier/rider, you just need a willingness to share your love of downhill snow-sports with our students. There is a mandatory safety training in December (various dates)-- please make note of that and commit to attending one training. You will not receive a pass without going to the training. See below for more details and the registration link. You will be contacted by our JISP coordinator in December to learn more about your role as an adult on-snow chaperone with our school.
