Dear Trolls Family,

Enclosed please find your membership application for the 2016-2017 season. We’re continuing our pickup at AC Nielsen Tennis Center on Hibbard Rd in Winnetka for Trolls families who live east of Glenview. Our pickup in Glenview will still be at Lyons School on Waukegan Rd and Lake Ave. Our membership fee to cover the cost of adult chaperones is $75. To prevent the last minute rush we get every year with Trolls signups, we’re doing an early bird $50 membership for those who sign up by October 1st!! Please come in and sign up and check out our new fall/winter stock, or simply mail in your applications with check to Trolls if you prefer. Our weekly fee, which covers the cost of lift tickets, ski and snowboard school tickets and bus fees, will be $80 per Saturday. Tickets for the trips may be purchased at the shop in lots of 5 initially, or individually as you wish. Unused tickets are refundable at the ski shop once the program is completed after the first Saturday in March. We hopefully will be blessed with great snow, and able to extend the program into March!

We’ll start our 52nd Season of Trolls on Saturday, December 3rd. Dates for the 2016-17 Season are:

  • Wilmot Mountain: Dec 3rd and 10th, January 28th, February 4th, 18th and 25th
  • Chestnut Mountain: January 21st
  • Alpine Valley: December 17th, January 7th, March 4th
  • Cascade Mountain: January 14th and February 11th

Please note that we are doing 3 long distance trips to Chestnut Mtn and Cascade this year!! The Chestnut and Cascade trips will be 7:30 AM – 8 PM due to extra distance, but we’re absorbing the extra fees of this trip as appreciation to all our great Trolls families!

Please purchase tickets in advance of the first trip, as kids are required to have a ticket to board the bus. A great idea is to write your child’s name on the back of the ticket for faster identification! We have 2 pickups again this year : Lyons School in Glenview (SE corner of Waukegan Rd and Lake Avenue) and AC Nielsen Tennis Center in Winnetka (on Hibbard Rd 2 blocks north of Willow Rd). Trips other than Chestnut and Cascade are from 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM. Please try to get your kids to the parking lot by 7:15 AM and be on time at 5:00 PM for pickup.

Come in early to make sure everything is ready to go for safe skiing or boarding come December. You’ll find the staff at Scandinavian Ski Shop to be friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in making sure your kids’ skiing/boarding needs are taken care of. A big perk of the program is that we’re also doing a $50 rental discount also till October 1st! This makes $199 seasonal ski or board rental $149!! Thank you for your interest in the Trolls program!! Let’s all THINK SNOW!!
