  • Meals are not included in this program. Participants are responsible for bringing their own lunch/ snacks or money for the food concessions that are available, your child will work up a good appetite, so please plan accordingly.

Shirt and pants should be wool or polar fleece. We discourage blue jeans under snow pants or as snow pants. Bringing cameras and other personal equipment is your child's responsibility.

Anticipate buses departing between 8:00-8:45 am and returning between 5:15 pm - 6:00 pm depending on the lesson. Always check the conditions before departing for the bus by calling the Snow Hotline 907-754-7669. This is very important as weather closures do occur.
  • REFUNDS, MAKE UPS & CHANGES - Please check schedules carefully for conflicts before registering your child for this program. There are no refunds issued once the student has been officially registered, except for the following circumstances: injury or moving out of the area (50% refund fee). In the case of injury, a pro-rated refund will be issued based on the number of weeks missed. Make-up vouchers will not be issued for missed weeks. If you provide your own transportation and your child is late for a lesson, they may be unable to join the group.
