Helpful Hints

  • Use the time between registration and the start of the program to make sure your child is properly dressed.
  • Blue jeans and knit mittens are not sufficient for warmth and dryness.
  • Sunscreen and protective eye wear are essential.
  • Prepare your child for the day ahead by letting them know what to expect and where you will be. This will help everyone have a fun and pleasurable experience.

What to Expect

  • If you’re registering children for their first ski lesson, it is important to set realistic expectations.
  • Children often remain on the beginner slope most of their first day.
