REFUND POLICY: A refund will ONLY be given if Lost Trail closes the mountain OR if you have a doctor's note documenting illness submitted to the program coordinator by NOON on the Wednesday before your scheduled ski day.

Equipment Rental

The rental office opens at 9:00 a.m. To avoid the potential of long lines and wait times, it is recommended that you get in line by 8:45 a.m. Please note that a parent must sign the rental equipment agreement form for each student each ski day.

Lift Ticket Pick-Up

On the program day, lift tickets will be available for pick-up in the ski lodge at the "Home School" table between 9:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.

Mandatory Lessons

Lessons begin anywhere from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and will not be assigned until the morning of each program day. Students are allowed to ski before and after their lessons, but they need to keep track of time so they do not miss their lesson. Students who skip their lesson will pay the full price of the lift ticket and rental and will no longer be eligible to participate in the program.
