Notice

All children under 12 years old taking a lesson must wear a helmet. Helmets are included in all children’s rental packages. Prices are in Canadian funds, do not include the GST and are subject to change without notice.

Cold Weather Policy

Safety is the Bow Valley Kid’s program’s biggest priority; therefore, in times of extreme weather shorter bouts outside skiing/snowboarding mixed with a range of games and indoor activities will ensure that the children remain engaged and progressing.  The Bow Valley Kids program also has exclusive access to the Whitehorn lodge basement which is used as a mid-mountain warm up zone.

Instructors are trained in how to minimize exposure and recognize and deal with frost nip situations.

Preparing for colder temperatures

  • A good night’s sleep, a hearty breakfast and drinking plenty amounts of water will help in being prepared.
  • Dress children appropriately for the weather/temperature.
  • Layers are highly recommended. Thermal long underwear and proper ski socks are essential for keeping your child comfortable throughout the day. 
  • Mittens rather than gloves.
  • Face masks + hat.
  • Thicker thermal underwear and decent ski socks.
  • Hand and toes warmers – can be purchased from the Retail store.

Cancellation Policy

Payment is required at the time of booking. For Bow Valley Kids Programs, refunds will be provided if cancellations are made seven (7) days prior to the program starting date. There will be a twenty five dollar ($25) non-refundable booking fee.
