Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy
Cancellations are not permitted inside 7 days during peak season or inside 72 hours during value season and will result in forfeiture of payment. We will reschedule lessons based on availability within 72 hours during your current trip which will result in a $25 rescheduling fee. We will not reschedule day of lessons.

Weather Conditions
Lessons will not be canceled due to weather. If the lifts are spinning, lessons are going. On extreme weather days additional breaks will be allotted as needed.

Waivers
All participants in lessons are required to sign a waiver. Please accompany any students under the age of 18 to the lesson check in; a parent or guardian must sign their waiver. Students under the age of 18 who arrive at lesson check in without a parent or guardian will not be permitted to participate in the lesson.

Group & KIDS WORLD “Quality of Lesson” Policy
Lessons are of the greatest value and produce the most positive results when age and ability considerations are adhered to. While situations such as parents wanting children of different ages/abilities to remain together in KIDS WORLD lessons; parents wanting to place children under the age of 13 in group lessons for scheduling reasons; parents wishing to “shadow” their children’s lessons, and other such situations do arise; it is not in the best interest of all the guests participating in a lesson to comply with these requests. If keeping family and friends together during lessons is a high priority, please take advantage of Private Lessons as they can be customized to meet your goals. Please see the Private Lesson description tab for suggestions on how to get the most out of organizing your group for Private Lessons.
