Fox Lane Ski Club Rating System


While skiing or snowboarding, all members must wear the Club armband visibly on his or her arm. The armbands indicate membership in the Club and the skier’s ability. Members will be charged $10 for lost armbands.  All members must wear helmets.

The rating system is as follows: RESTRICTED: Red Arm Band - Skiing/snowboarding is restricted to trails marked with a Green Circle or a Blue Square. Restricted members found on Black Diamond slopes or Terrain Parks will be expelled from the Club.

UNRESTRICTED: Green Arm Band - Skiers/Snowboarders may use all trails & Terrain Parks except those deemed unsafe by the Trip Captain or Ski Patrol. Unrestricted members must demonstrate the ability to descend an expert trail under control.

All new Club members are listed as RESTRICTED until they pass a Club-administered test. The chaperones will administer the test on an Expert Trail. Upon successfully completing the test, the Club will notify the parent or guardian and ask that they approve their child’s status being changed to UNRESTRICTED.  Tests are typically at 11am and 1:30pm.  Members may test once per trip. 
The membe r will remain RESTRICTED until the completed form is signed by the parent and returned. Please be advised that the ability test is only a general assessment of a member’s skiing/boarding ability and is no way meant to suggest that a particular skier/boarder is capable of safely skiing/ boarding any or all expert trails .

The decision as to whether the status of a skier/boarder who passes the ability test should be changed to UNRESTRICTED” is the sole discretion of the member’s parent or guardian. Members who have passed the test in previous years must have a signed release form on file with the Club. Once the form is signed and returned, it will be kept on permanent file with the Club.
