We strongly recommend that all students wear helmets while skiing or snowboarding. All students under the age of 19 are required to wear a helmet. If your child does not have their own helmet, one may be rented for $5 per day. Helmets are also available for purchase from Outfitters Store.
Advanced registration is available online. Day of registration is available by phone at (604) 980-9311 or at Guest Services at the base of the mountain at least 2 hours prior to the session start time. If you are already on the Mountain, please drop in to Alpine Guest Services on the main floor of the chalet 30 minutes prior to the lesson. Please have all required information ready prior to registration. This includes the student's ability level and measurements of the student's height, weight and shoe size if rental equipment is required. Day Lessons meet at the Snow School Meeting Area ten minutes before the lesson start time.
