HARVARD — Registration for the ski program at Wachusett Mountain for grades five to 12 is now open.

The program, sponsored by the Harvard Park and Recreation Commission, will run for six consecutive Wednesdays starting Jan. 2. On the early-release days — Jan. 9 and Feb. 6 — buses will leave The Bromfield School at 12:15 p.m. and return at 6:30 p.m. On regular Wednesdays the buses will leave at 2:30 p.m. and return at 7:30 p.m.

Grade five will leave from Harvard Elementary School after dismissal on both early-release and regular Wednesdays and return at 7:30 p.m.

The bus fee is $72. All students in the program must purchase a six-week ski badge for $93 or a bronze, silver or gold century pass for the stated amounts to be eligible to ride the bus.

Details of the program — equipment rental and the six one-hour lessons offered, which are required for new skiers — can be found in the brochure in the Bromfield or elementary school office.

Faculty, parents and siblings are eligible to purchase ski passes through this program. Registration forms are available at the Bromfield and elementary school offices and should be returned as soon as possible. The program is offered on a “first come, first served” basis. When the buses are full, no more applications can be accepted.
