Ski and Snowboard School Cancellation Policy

If you cancel within the 24 hour period and we are able to rebook the instructor, a $100 processing fee will be charged. If you cancel and we are unable to rebook the instructor, the full price of the lesson will be charged to your credit card. The cancellation fee may be waived if the lesson is rebooked for an alternate date.

Helmet Policy

Ski & Snowboard School participants under the age of 18 must wear a winter sport protective helmet. While helmets may reduce or mitigate the severity of some head injuries, their use does not guarantee safety and will not prevent certain injuries. Rental helmets are available at our children's ski school locations for your convenience.
