All class assignments are left to the discretion of the instructors. The instructors, and their supervisors are best able to decide which groups students should be placed in to ensure quality instruction and the best overall learning environment for each group.
Refunds & Cancellations
No Refunds will be given except in the case of injury. No refunds or credits will be issued for missed lessons or in the case that a student is removed from the program for disciplinary reasons. Injured skiers or snowboarders will receive a credit, in the form of a Gift Card, good for the unused portion of the multi-week program, but must provide either an accident form number if injured at the mountain or a doctor's note dated within 10 days of the injury. Students may cancel 10 days prior to the program start date at no cost.
There is a warming yurt in the Nordic Area that will be made available for students to gear up and have lunch.
The mountain accepts: cash, checks, and bankcards. There is also an ATM in the main lodge.
What to Expect
The skiing and/or snowboarding aren't usually the cold part of the activity. Riding up the mountain on the chair lift is generally where you will feel the cold and wind chill. If you do feel cold, go inside and warm up. When you go back out, put on an extra layer, a neck gaiter or maybe add some hot packs in your gloves or boots. If you are just starting to ski or snowboard, expect to spend some time in the snow. An extra pair of gloves or mitts to change into if your first pair gets wet will keep you warm. And, remember, everyone got started in the same way. Your first day is usually the most work. It gets easier with each day. DON'T GIVE UP.
Road conditions will probably change as you get higher in elevation. Clear and wet streets in the valleys can change to compact snow and ice in the mountains. Allow for more time than you might normally plan on. Winter weather tires are advised! Other drivers may not have abundant experience with snow driving, so drive cautiously and defensively
There's nothing worse than being cold. The following clothing list is really the minimum that you should have. Remember that layering with several layers will be warmer than bulking on one thick layer.
- First Layer (long underwear). Synthetic fabrics like Polypropylene or wool are best. Avoid wearing cotton against your skin.
- A warm second layer such as a sweater or fleece jacket and fleece pants for cold days, or if your ski jacket/pants are not insulated.
- Ski socks with a high wool or polypropylene content (no t cotton athletic socks). Usually one pair of socks is best.
- Waterproof jacket and pants. Weather in the NW is unpredictable. Staying dry is the key to staying warm. Insulated or shells work fine. Layering will allow you to adjust for changing weather and temperature.
- Warm beanie/stocking cap (synthetic, wool, or polar fleece) & a ski/snowboard helmet.
- Ski/Snowboard goggles or sport oriented glasses.
- Warm ski gloves that are water resistant.
- Polar fleece neck gaiter or face mask.
