Once you are registered, DON'T FORGET TO:

 

Get your gear! – if your child doesn't have their own skis or snowboard, you can rent them at any local shop. We recommend renting from Nymans, just south of Foothill.  You can stop in at your convenience to get your child fitted (the sooner the better) - then Nyman's will have your rentals ready to pick up after school on each ski school day and you can return them the following morning.  For ski school, discounted pricing is $10 per session for skis/boards and $5 for helmets. Helmets are suggested but not required. Rental fees should be paid directly to Nyman's. http://www.nymans-ski-shop.com/index.htm

Please also make sure kids have good coats, gloves, hats, ski pants, etc. so that they can stay warm and dry - especially when it's snowing! 

 

Plan Rides! – parents are responsible for transportation and we encourage carpools! Night skiing lift tickets are available to parents who drive a carpool for $15 (regularly $40) during our school’s lessons - let me know in advance if you are interested!  

 

ARRIVE EARLY! You will need time to park, ride the shuttle if the lower lot is full, walk up to Ray’s lift, and get all gear on BEFORE start time.  It’s so sad when a whole class has to wait for a late-comer or the late-comer misses the first run and has to wait till the class comes back down - this can take 30+ minutes!  

 

Kids get a lift ticket at each lesson and are welcome to continue night skiing or boarding after the lesson until the resort closes close but parents are responsible for chaperoning them during this time.

 

Let me know if you have further questions!
