Parents, please meet your child's instructor at the base of chair 6, or magic carpet. 

*Note: If your child will be unable to attend a class, please let the instructor know prior to that day's lesson. 

SAFETY: It is the parents' responsibility to be sure that the child's equipment has been properly fitted and adjusted safely prior to the first class and thereafter as necessary. 

The child should have warm clothing for cold weather, i.e. warm coat, pants, helmet or hat, gloves, scarf and goggles. 

We recommend children wear properly fitted ski helmets. 

We suggest that money for a hot drink or food be given to your child for a warm-up break. 

It is our goal to introduce our children to skiing in a fun and instructional format.
