Prior to Arrival for Lesson
Before checking in at Ski and Snowboard School for you or your child’s lesson, be sure you have:
- Proper attire: (the following items are mandatory for all children 12 and under)
- Water-resistant outerwear
- Face protection / neck gaiter
- Ski Socks
- Lift ticket or season pass
- Lesson ticket
- Equipment: If you are renting equipment, please keep in mind the rental process takes time. Weekends and Holidays the process may take an hour or possibly longer. Picking up equipment the night before your lesson is strongly recommended. Equipment must be collected prior to lesson start time even if included in the package.
Lesson Check-In Times
Parents may check children in to CAT TRACKERS group lessons in the Cat Trackers Building anytime between 8:00am and 9:00am. Please have children checked in no later than 9:00am. Late arrivals will not be accepted as adding students to a lesson after it has begun significantly hinders the progress of the group as a whole. Children must be picked up promptly at 3:30pm each day.

“Quality of Lesson” Consideration
Cat Trackers Groups
Group lessons are just that – multiple children with a variety of personalities, goals (including expectations from parents), energy levels & abilities. That’s a great thing; friends are part of what makes Cat Trackers so fun! We take a good look at each wonderful child entrusted to our care and place them in the group that makes the most sense with respect to the big picture for that day. That can mean mixed ages with matched abilities, some groups smaller than others due to skill set, and it ALWAYS means some variation of skill even within a group. If you are adamant that your child only ski or snowboard with others of the exact (or near-exact) same ability level, we encourage you to consider a Private Lesson as this is the setting in which we can guarantee one-on-one attention and a lesson that moves at a pace customized to your child’s ability.
Private lessons allow an individual, a group of friends or families to customize a lesson to their abilities and goals. Experience has shown that the greatest amount of learning and progress occurs when age and ability are very similar. If progress is your primary goal, then we strongly encourage you to avoid placing student of greatly differing ages and/or abilities in the same lesson. Private Lessons are based on availability and first come, first serve.
