Policies & Special Considerations

  • Reservations are strongly recommended for all private lessons.
  • Cancellation/payment policy – 48 hours. Private lesson reservations cancelled within 48 hours of the lesson start time will be charged the full amount of the private lesson. Prepayment is required for all private lessons.
  • Rentals – If renting equipment please allow a minimum of one hour to get fitted on your first day, or if your schedule allows, pickup your rentals the evening before your first day on the slopes. Four Mountain Sports rental shops are located at nine locations throughout the bases of our four mountains and include the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center at Snowmass as well as the Panda house at Buttermilk.
  • Helmets – Helmets are required for children ages 17 and under participating in all Ski & Snowboard Schools programs. Helmets are also required for all participants, regardless of age, when participating in Terrain Park & Pipe lessons. While helmets may reduce the severity of a head injury, the best way to avoid accidents is to know and abide by the skier/rider responsibility code.
