Midweek Programs ages 3-10 All ability levels
Weekend Programs ages 5-13 Intermediate and above. If your child is a beginner, we recommend signing up for the early season Start-Up program.
Start-Up Programs are for beginners only and are a great way to get your kid ready for the Weekend programs that start in January.


Group Placement

The first day and a half is spent getting children into the appropriate groups, which is based on age and ability level. After the second week, we will not be making group changes. It is very important for attendance to be consistent or your child may be dropped from the program. Instructors are focused on building techniques using appropriate terrain to develop abilities in anticipation of more challenging terrain. Our focus is on skill, using all-mountain terrain. Kids signed up for Saturday or Sunday Programs must be skiing at an intermediate to advanced level.

Chairlift Riding Policy
Be advised that your child may be riding lifts alone or with other children or adults, while enrolled in these programs. Please review the most recent Children’s Chairlift Code of Conduct, and help us to train your child to understand the importance of sitting back, holding on, and no fooling around, while on a lift. Please review our chairlift riding policies. We do our best to always have children ages 7 years and under accompanied by an adult.

Weather & Cancellation Policy
We will run regardless of weather conditions 99% of the time. It is very rare for us to cancel the program due to weather, however, if we need to cancel, we will determine a plan of action that morning. An email will be sent out as late as 8:30am, regarding any changes. Please do not call the supervisor’s office as they have on-hill duties. It is your responsibility to participate in the days designated for the program. We do not offer makeup days or drop-ins, and you may only participate on the day and time you registered for. Mountain Camp and Summiteers rarely cancel and we ski in all types of weather. If the mountain closes prior to the start time of the program, no classes go out, and we cancel the program, we will offer a refund for that day.


Lunch

Weekend students will need to bring their lunch with their name clearly labeled and will not be able to go to the cafeteria to purchase food. Lunch location TBD pending COVID guidelines for the 21-22 season.

Equipment
All students must have the following: eye protection, helmet, pass, sunscreen, gloves or mittens, skis and boots, and appropriate snow clothing. Snacks are not provided, so please send a snack in your child's pocket.

Tips to make your day go smoothly...
  • Arrive within the 15-minute drop off time dressed and ready to ski!
  • Sundays are busier than most think, please leave early in anticipation of traffic and parking delays.
  • Plan ahead for picking up your pass and rental gear (if you need it).
  • Feed your child a healthy breakfast and/or lunch.
  • Include a snack in your child’s pocket. Snacks are not provided.
  • Remind your child to stay with their group at all times.
