FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

What Ski School programs will be available this winter?

 Group and private lessons will be offered this season. All Ski & Ride School classes will have a maximum class size of six. The 5-and 6-year-old lessons will be a maximum class size of four. For 3- and 4-year-olds, who often spend a good portion of their lesson indoors, we will offer one-on-one, one-hour lessons. Three- and four-year old children are also welcome to join their family in a full or half day private lesson.

 What are your enhanced safety protocols? How will you maintain physical distancing?

 Class size will be limited to six or fewer people for all of group and private lessons. All participants will be required to complete a pre-arrival self-health screening on the day of their lesson. Child classes will be considered cohorts. They will ride lifts together during the day with their instructor. For all lessons, participants will meet on snow, not indoors. Face coverings will be required.

 Will health screenings be in effect, for both the guest and the instructor, prior to a lesson?

 All our employees will be required to undergo health screenings before they arrive at work, as well as complete an official health screening at the resort. Ski & Ride School participants will be required to complete a pre-arrival self-health screening within 24 hours of each lesson, prior to arrival on the mountain.

 Are face coverings required?

Yes. Face coverings will be required in every part of the experience; specifically while loading and riding on chairlifts and in gondolas, inside all buildings, and during all ski and snowboard lessons. No one will be permitted on the mountain without a face covering.

  •  Do I have to wear a face covering while I’m skiing and snowboarding? While face coverings are not required during the physical acts of skiing and snowboarding if the guest is maintaining proper physical distance and is not in the vicinity of others, it is recommended guests do so. Otherwise, face coverings are required in every part of the experience, including while loading and riding on chairlifts and in gondolas, inside all buildings, and during all ski and snowboard lessons.
  •  Are you allowing neck gaiters/buffs? The type of face covering a guest may wear includes a cloth neck gaiter or other type of material that completely covers a person’s mouth and nose.
  •  Are there any exemptions allowed? What if I can’t/won’t wear a face covering, such as if I’m ADA exempt? Face coverings are required in every part of our operation without exception. If a guest is unable or unwilling to wear a face covering, the guest will not be allowed access in order to limit the risk of COVID-19 exposure to other guests and employees.
  •  What about my child age 2 and under – do they need a mask? In line with local and CDC guidelines, we are asking that children aged 3 and older wear face coverings.

 Do participants in Ski School need to separately make a reservation to access the mountain?

 All guests must have a lift ticket or pass to ski & ride. If you are not a pass holder, you must add a lift ticket to your lesson at checkout. If you are a pass holder, your mountain access reservation is confirmed when you book your lesson. 

 Will you still be able to sign up for lessons day-of, on-site?

 Lessons will need to be purchased in advance – no walk-up, day-of lessons will be available.

 Will kids Ski School still include lunch?

 We are offering half-day group lessons currently. These lessons do not include lunch. 
Private full day lessons will have a break for lunch. Please note, lunch is not included in the purchase of a private lesson.

Will childcare be available?

We will not be offering childcare for guests at our resorts this winter season.

 What will happen to season-long and specialty programs this season?

 Most season-long youth programs will be offered this year for children age 7 and up.

 Why are you not allowing children age 6 and under in your season-long programs?

 To help protect our guests, our employees and our communities amid this pandemic, we knew some changes would be required this season. This decision was made for the safety of children and employees as we have evaluated what products we can effectively offer within the lesson structure which includes managing lift safety, lunch processes and general needs of children of different ages throughout a lesson product.

 What if my child has a credit from last year’s season-long program but is under the age of 7?

 Your credit may be applied to another lesson type for your child or another member of your household.  More information to come if you are not able to use your credit.
