Junior Bow Valley Kids (ages 3-4)

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to offer our Junior Bow Valley Kids Program. Private lesson options will be available. Please contact our Snow School for more information.

Phone: +1 (403) 522-1333.
Email: skischool@skilouise.com.

Note: All participants of the Junior program must be toilet trained. Please understand that skiing and snowboarding lessons are conducted in below freezing temperatures for the majority of the programs. Children may not participate if they are still in diapers or pull-ups. Morning sessions are subject to availability, spaces are limited and offered to those who register first. Maximum group size is 2 children per group. Lunch is not included in this 2 hour lesson.

Preparing For Colder
Temperatures

A good night’s sleep, a hearty breakfast, and drinking plenty of water will help in being prepared. Please dress children appropriately for the weather/temperature. Layers are highly recommended along with thermal long underwear, proper ski socks, mittens rather than gloves, face mask and toque. Hand and toes warmers are also recommended and can be purchased from the Retail Store.

Cold Weather Policy

Safety is our 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.

Covid-19 Protocols

The safety of our guests and staff is of the utmost importance to us. Please note that all plans have been made under the current government guidelines. If any guidelines change we will assess our program and advise all participants of any adjustments we need to make. We will release more information about the new protocols closer to the program start date.

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 start date. There will be a twenty five dollar ($25) non-refundable booking fee.

Please Note: All children under 18 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.
