Q. Can siblings in elementary or high school join the club?

A. Sorry, but no. The club is strictly for students in grades 5-8 attending schools in Farmington or Farmington Hills. Home-schooled students who are residents of Farmington or Farmington Hills can also join.

Q. If there is no school that day, is the trip canceled?

A. No. This is a winter sport, and unlike the schools, we don't cancel due to cold weather or snow. If the road conditions are too dangerous to travel, then we would cancel. When the FPS buses are not available, we use private transportation and have a trailer for carrying equipment. Follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/farmingtonski so you'll always have up-to-the-minute updates (like the return bus ETA).

Q. What should I do if my child is not going to ride the bus to the ski area?

A. Sign up online and then send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the student's name. All students must ride the bus home unless a parent signs them out in the meeting room, upstairs in the lodge.

Q. How do I become a chaperone and can I chaperone if I am not a skier or snowboarder?

A. Non-skier or non-snowboarder chaperones are needed every week. If you are interested, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will respond well before the FSC storefront closes Wednesday at 8:00 PM each week so that there is plenty of time to purchase rentals if you need them. FSC tries to enlist one chaperone for every 10 students that are signed up for the trip. All skiing or snowboarding chaperones will receive one free (non-transferable) lift ticket.

Q. I have 3 children but not 3 emails. Can I register more than one at the same email address?

A. No. The system requires a unique email for each student. We need a working email to be able to contact you through our listserv. It's also how we store emergency medical information for each student. However, you can 'fake' the email address for your 2nd and 3rd child by adding a + sign and number before the @ symbol (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Emails sent to that address will bounce, but we'll know why. If you have a Gmail address, you will still get the email this way (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Handy Gmail trick - stuff after the + sign in your address doesn't count!

Q. Why is the cutoff for Friday night on Wednesday night?

A. We download our orders from Paypal after 8 PM Wednesday and process the orders. We order the buses and lift tickets on Thursday mornings. Alpine Valley needs to know how many ski instructors to bring in. FPS Transportation has to line up bus drivers. We have to get a headcount and line up chaperones. All of this takes time...and we have day jobs! That's why we tell everyone who calls the school on Thursday and begs to get our cell phone and home phone numbers, that we can't add them to the trip. Save yourself a phone call. The store opens on Sunday every week. You have 4 days to get your order in for the week.

Q. It's past 8 PM on Wednesday, the store is closed and I didn't get my student signed up. What can I do?

A. Please don't call or text. If you missed the signup deadline, or if you signed up but want to cancel, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know. We will add your information to the add/drop list for the week, and do our best to work out a trade with someone in the opposite situation. Hopefully, it all works out.

Q. I put a note in with my order regarding...and did not hear back from anyone. What's up with that?

A. Our weekly order is downloaded from the store and our automated process extracts the 100+ orders each week, sorts them out into lists for buses, rentals, lessons, etc. But it isn't read by humans, and it doesn't give us the personal note you sent in about your student. If you need to get in touch with us, please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you!
