What to Bring

Equipment: skis or snowboard, boots, poles (please be aware that ski poles are not necessary for kids' beginner lessons and instructors may ask that you not bring them). If you are renting equipment for Cub Camp, Riglet, Snow Camp, or Learn to Ski/Ride, your instructors will assist you with getting it AFTER drop-off. If you are renting equipment for Mountain Camp or Mountain Riders, please allow time to get your rental equipment BEFORE you meet for your lesson. 

Wear: waterproof jacket, snow pants, mittens, helmet, goggles, non-cotton ski socks, neckwarmer/face mask if cold.

Please label all equipment and clothing with kids' names to prevent lost items.

If your child has any allergies or food restrictions, please send lunch with them.

Cub Campers will need different items throughout the day. Please visit the Cub Camp Helpful Information page for a full list. 

What to Expect

Kids Programs

Our Ski and Snowboard School lessons are on-snow programs. Make sure your child wants to be here before you sign them up. 

Prepare your child for the day by explaining why they are here and assure them that you will return at the end of their lesson. Also make sure they are well rested and have a good breakfast; skiing and riding require energy. 

Students are responsible for their own equipment. Labeling all equipment and clothing will help to avoid loosing things.

If you would like to observe, please do so from a distance so as not to distract the lesson. 

Please bring to our attention any special needs your child has such as allergies, medical instructions, etc. The more their instructor knows, the better. 

Only beginner lessons practice at the Launch Pad area. More advanced lessons use the entire mountain. 

Lessons are held regardless of weather, so please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. 

Snack and/or lunch are provided for the day depending on the product you purchase. Some foods served for lunch may include hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads, pizza, chicken nuggets, or pasta. Snacks may include yogurt, pretzels, baked goods, goldfish, graham crackers, juice, milk, soda, or hot chocolate. If your child has a special diet, please consider bringing snack and lunch with you.

Students learn more than just skiing and riding skills. Our instructors teach "The Responsibility Code," Go With the Flow, the mountain environment, and making new friends. We want children to enjoy themselves while learning, so lessons are more like going to camp, not school.

registration/cHECKING IN

Save time by completing our Clinic Registration form at home and bringing it with you on your first day!

Mountain Camp registration/check-in and ticket pick up is located in the lower level of the Discovery Center.

Registration/check-in begins at 7:30am on Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays. It begins at 8:30am Monday-Friday non-holiday weeks.

On Friday nights from mid-December to mid-March, we encourage you to take advantage of Friday night check in at Midnight Express at the Carinthia Base Lodge. Then, you will be all set to go Saturday morning! 

At the time of registration, you will be required to fill out a registration form for your child with medical and emergency information. This will be kept on file for the season. Placing your cell phone (or emergency) numbers in your child's pocket is an excellent way for them to give this information to us if the need arises.

Allow extra time to complete forms, pick up lift and lesson tickets, try on rentals and get your child settled. Busy weekends and holidays can be hectic. Avoid lines by arriving early!

For Mountain Camp/Riders, children are placed in groups at 9:15am for lessons starting at 9:30, and 1:15pm for lessons starting at 1:30 at the Big Dipper Building. For Snow Camp/Riders, children are placed in groups at 9:45am for lessons starting at 10 in the Discovery Center. Please be on time.

Multi-Day Upgrades

Book multiple days in advance to enjoy the most possible savings! Multiple day lesson rates only apply to lessons booked in advance and cannot be upgraded on or after the first day of the lesson. To add days to an existing reservation, you must call at least 72 hrs before the first day of the lesson. Additions can be made only by calling the Central Reservations office at 800-889-4411 or by emailing us at

For example:

·         If you purchase a 2 day lesson product and would like to add day 3, if you call or email us 72 hours prior to your reservation, the 3 day lesson price will be honored.

·         If you wait until the day of your lesson, you will need to purchase the additional 3rd day at the full 1 day lesson price.

If you are unsure of how many days you would like to attend, you may purchase the extra days with the package, in advance. If you decide to not use any days in your package you can receive a voucher for the unused days. Vouchers are good through 4/30/20 and may be traded in only for lessons. Not valid for lift tickets, rentals, retail, or food and beverage.
