If your child has special dietary requirements, please discuss them with our sales hosts when making your reservation and again when you arrive to drop off your child. Please be aware we  DO NOT operate a nut free facility, please be sure to inform us of any allergies your child may have. You will also need to ensure you child has their epi pen on them should they require one.
4-12-year-olds have the option for lunch with the Snow School between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm.
Actual time on snow will vary depending on weather conditions, the group's ability and stamina. All groups will take a 1-hour lunch break; usually, those who are at the early stages of learning to slide on snow and those groups with younger children will take more frequent breaks throughout the day to rest and recuperate.

Keep in mind that children learn at different rates and that the child's overall enjoyment of their time at Mountain Kids and on the mountain is most important.

End of the Day
Pick up time is 3:30 pm from the base you dropped your children off at. You will be required to sign a form, releasing your tot from the class at the end of the day.
