Important Info

Lesson times:  Please arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled start time.  Ski and Snowboard School cannot guarantee availability of an instructor if you are more than 10 minutes late for the respective lesson and will result in forfeit of payment or a $25 rescheduling fee.

Semi-private (more than one person):  We recommend participants be similar in age and ability.  The instructor will teach to the less experienced and/or younger skier/rider when there is a big age or ability difference.

Waivers: All participants in lessons are required to sign a waiver.  A parent or guardian must be present at check in to sign a waiver for all children under 18. 

Dress: We suggest dressing in layers with the outer layer being waterproof. Guests should have waterproof/resisted mitten/gloves, goggles, a hat and/or helmet, and a neck up.  Being dressed properly is a big part of enjoying ones skiing/riding experience. 

Rentals:  Rentals need to be picked up prior to coming to the lesson and we encourage guests to take care of getting rentals the night before.  If that is not possible arrive at the rental area 45 minutes to an hour before your lesson as lines can be long especially during the holidays. 

Helmets:  In our continued effort to make the Snowshoe experience safe for all our guests, all children 12 and under participating in any lesson are required to wear a helmet which is included in all rental packages.

Weather Conditions:  Lessons will not be cancelled due to weather.  On extreme weather days breaks will be allotted as needed.
