Ski School Updates

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our 10-week programs will be starting on Jan. 7 and 8, 2017 and running  every weekend through March 11 and 12. In order to make the experience as positive as possible, here are some suggestions:
  • Please dress your child appropriately for the weather. We will run our program regardless of weather (unless we have to close the mountain due to extreme conditions: check our website at
In cold or wet conditions we will watch our students closely, and take frequent breaks, but proper clothing can make a huge difference!
  • A good breakfast or lunch is important to provide the energy for 2 hours of physical activity.
  • The first 2 weeks of the program may involve some shifting of students from class to class as we learn how everyone fits in. Arrive at the meeting area at Westside, ready to go, at least 15 minutes early to help us establish the lesson groups.
  • Please tell us if your child has any medical conditions or allergies.
  • Still time to register for programs until Jan. 3
Thank you!
