After School Program

After School Program 2021

Snow Snake's After School Program provides skiing and snowboarding class lessons for children grades 3-8. Lessons are available Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for five consecutive weeks. The program provides equipment, lessons, lift tickets, and most importantly, LOTS OF FUN!

After School Program is now FULL.


COVID-9: Ski Well, Be Well 
We all want to be outside and move! That is why we are doing things a lot differently this year. Please check out our COVID-9: Ski Well, Be Well Protocol to see what we have been doing. For the After School Program, we are only allowing a maximum of 6 students per class, and have limited the number of students per session. We have added two extra sessions on Friday during the day to accommodate all the skiers/riders. Breaks and the locations will be scheduled and strictly adhered to with extra outdoor seating. Face coverings will be required for all skiers and riders. We even brought in a food truck. We do, however, ask that parents do not stay inside the building to minimize crowds and to follow the health regulations. 

The First Day of Class
Wednesday classes begin January 6, 2021, Thursday classes begin January 7, 2021, and Friday classes begin January 8, 2021.  Wednesday and Thursday class times run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday, class times run 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (NEW), 2:30 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. (NEW), and 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (FULL) Be sure to arrive 30 minutes early the first day.

Get a $10 discount per student for choosing Wednesday or Thursday.
The cost includes rental equipment (except race clinic), lessons, and a lift ticket.  $20 fee for changing your registered lesson day or snow sport, or if registering after December 31, 2020.

All skiers/snowboarders must have a WAIVER signed by a parent or legal guardian. 

Family Benefits
All family members are eligible to ski during class lesson hours for $17 lift ticket and $17 rental.

Proper Winter Clothing
Students must have gloves/mittens, hats (helmets recommended), winter jackets, and snow pants. Dressing properly with layers is important. Glove protectors are recommended for tow rope use and are available for purchase at the front desk. Face coverings must be worn by everyone. 

Weather Conditions
If there is inclement weather, you will need to call the ski area to find out if there will be class. Generally we do not cancel lessons because of weather conditions. If a class is canceled, it will be made up at the end of the classes if weather permits. Classes canceled due to the weather will not be refunded. All attempts will be made by the ski area to get the full five weeks of classes.

Cancellation Policy
There will be a full refund if canceled 14 days prior to student’s first ski or board class. If the student skis or boards the first week and does not wish to continue the program, there will be a refund of $30. There will not be any refunds given after the first week of lessons. 

For whatever reason, if you have to miss a day, unfortunately there will be no option to make up that day. 

Everyone should know the Your Responsibility Code. Your instructor will review the Responsibility Code continually during the 5 weeks.
