Booking Policies

  • Advance reservations and payment in full is required for all lessons to guarantee availability.
  • Lift tickets are required in addition to Mountain School programs unless otherwise noted.
  • We cannot guarantee accommodation for late arrivals.
  • All group lessons for 7 - 15 year olds and adults are available from December 19, 2020 - April 11, 2021.
  • Due to the unique quality of our resort location, there are times when Little Cottonwood Canyon road and/or lift access is delayed due to avalanche danger. In these cases, we monitor the situation closely and send programs out as soon as there is staff available and conditions warrant. Circumstances change with each situation and therefore it is important for guests to communicate with our staff. If lessons are missed due to these extreme circumstances, we will make every effort to accommodate our guests.
