When participating in a lesson, your child may potentially ski/ride through a terrain park. If your child needs assistance/supervision on the chair lift, they will ride with an adult who may not be your child's instructor but another member of the community, who is willing and able to ride with a child.

Please have your child at the Daylodge by 10:15 am each morning of the program. Please arrive one hour early if you need to purchase rentals, lift tickets or are signing up for the first time. Pick up your child at 3:15 pm.
