BRATTLEBORO >> If you shop at Amazon, here's an easy way to support the Brattleboro School Endowment: just make the Brattleboro School Endowment your charity of choice by going to That's it. After that, every time you make a purchase, Amazon will donate a small percentage to the endowment. You don't have to remember anything, do anything more, or pay anything extra. It's Amazon's way of supporting lots of different causes very simply.

The Brattleboro School Endowment also hosts the Mount Snow Express Bus, but it couldn't do it without its four sponsors — A.L. Tyler & Sons, Lawton Flooring, the Marina Restaurant and the Vermont Country Deli. The Mount Snow Express Bus will be running all Sundays in February, including Winter Carnival on Feb. 8 and Town Meeting Day on March 1.

The bus departs Academy School at 8 a.m. with a stop at the gas station on Route 30 in Dummerston at 8:15 a.m. and arrival at the Sundance Lodge at 9 a.m. The bus leaves the Sundance Lodge at 4:30 p.m., with a stop at the gas station at 4:30 p.m. and arrival at Academy School at 4:45 p.m.

The remaining dates for the ski bus this year are all Sundays in February; Winter Carnival on Feb. 18; and Town Meeting day, March 1.

This is a transportation-only service. Riders are responsible for being at the pick-up and drop-off locations on time. Although there is an adult on the bus, there is no chaperone with any legal responsibility.
