CLUB SKI SESSIONS AT HERON LAKE

Here are some FAQs about club ski sessions:

 

When are club sessions?


Saturdays & Sundays (unless there is a private booking) - usually all day, but the duration of the ski session is determined by the bookings we receive.
Tuesdays & Fridays - afternoon/ evening

It's worth booking at least 24 hours before the ski session so we can accommodate you. All the boat crew are volunteers, we want to avoid them waiting around with nothing to do, so the duration of the ski sessions is determined by the bookings we receive. We can't guarantee there will be a driver and observer available if you just turn up at the lake I'm afraid.

 

The Centre Manager, Bob Mitchell will also try to accommodate independent skiers outside these sessions. You may need to organise an observer. Please contact Bob on 07411 337355.

We generally run these sessions April - Sept, but if there is enough demand over the winter we will try and accommodate people

How do I book?


Email heronbookings@gmail.com  

Or through the WhatsApp ski booking group. Just message 07968 012464 to be added to the group. 


Do I have to book through WhatsApp?


As has always been the case, you do not have to book through WhatsApp. You can email to book. This system was never meant to exclude people, it's just made things more efficient. 

Anyone on the WhatsApp group can remove themselves at any time.


Can anyone ski on a club session?


We want to be as inclusive as possible for all members on these sessions. However, if you are not an independent skier, please give us enough notice so we can find the required volunteer support for you.

Disabled skiers are always given priority as it's often very difficult/ impossible for them to ski elsewhere. On very busy sessions, we will limit the number of sets per individual to 2 for full members, and 1 for associate members.


Why was this booking system introduced?


Club sessions had become really quiet a few years ago - volunteer drivers & observers were getting frustrated at sitting around doing nothing for much of the session

This current booking system revitalised club sessions. It's been great to see the club transformed into something dynamic and popular again.



Please remember, this is a members driven association. We need to all chip in to make things run as efficiently as possible. Work hard play hard!
