THINGS TO KNOW:
- Any student who is renting equipment must be sized at least 2 weeks before programs begin so that they can have their equipment ready when they arrive the first day and have the correct information printed on their lesson tag.
- McIntyre will be hosting fitting and information nights in our ski shop on:
- Monday Nov. 2nd: 6pm-7pm
- Tuesday Nov. 10th: 6pm-7pm
- Saturday Nov. 14th: 1pm-2pm
- Wednesday Dec. 2nd: 6pm-7pm
- Tuesday Dec. 8th: 6pm-7pm
- Thursday Dec. 10th: 6pm-7pm
- Monday Dec. 14th: 6pm-7pm
- Due to school restrictions this year we will be unable to attend schools for fittings. If you cannot attend the dates above, feel free to stop by during our regular shop hours to be fitted for rentals.
- All students will be grouped according to age and ability. We will evaluate your child and make sure they are in the appropriate group for their skill level and age.
- Any requests to be with friends are not guaranteed.
- There are no makeup lessons if your child misses one lesson. Makeup lessons are only done on a school basis.
- If lessons are cancelled by McIntyre, we will schedule the makeup lesson week to the end of the lesson program. (This would mean lessons would be one week past the projected last day of lesson programs.) We will do our best to make sure all 5 lessons are covered.
- If you as a parent or guardian would like to ski/snowboard while your child is here in lessons, you may purchase a parent pass for $15.
- If you would like to be more a part of the program as a chaperone, please let your coordinator know. McIntyre is always in need of chair riders, chaperones in the rental shop to help get children to their lessons on time, chaperones in the lodge etc. Your coordinator can provide you with more information on being a parent chaperone. Please keep in mind that this is not an opportunity to ski only with your child, other children will need assistance too.
- Please make sure your child is dressed warm and has extra hats, mittens and gloves packed for ski club. We also suggest packing separate winter clothing for ski club and recess, it is not fun for any child who will have to put cold wet clothing back on from recess for ski club at night. We have a wide variety of accessories in our retail shop and if you come by on a fitting and info night you will be able to save some money by just being in ski club!
