Why does my child have to ride the bus?

A: In order to get group rates we have to have a certain number of students participate. Also- we hand out lift tickets to students as they get off of the bus. It is difficult to keep track of who should and should not get a ticket when students don’t ride the bus. For our program, it is required that kids ride the bus to the hill but they are welcome to ride home with parents as long as we are told in advance.
