Skill Levels
All students will need skill level listed under their account; if they are returning there is a good chance the snow sports school has it listed in your account from last year, otherwise please refer to the "skill level guide" link found on the right hand column of this page. This may need to be adjusted if the student advanced after the completion of last years program. The skill level must be for the sport the student will be taking this year. Example: if the student is a level 5 skier but is only taking snowboard lessons this year, you must list the snowboard skill level.
