Make your child's visit a success!

  • Minimum age to participate in the Polar Kids program is 4.
  • Children must be able to use the bathroom independently.
  • For the safety of all students, parents are not permitted beyond the registration desk in Polar Kids. 
  • Children must arrive dressed and ready for snow. Please dress your child in the lodge before check-in.
  • Due to limited space, we are unable to hold items other than shoes/boots, items from our gear list below, and lunch boxes. All other items must remain with the parent.
  • A parent or guardian authorized to pick up the student must remain on the premises at all times.
  • Parents who wish to watch should do so from a distance so the child's focus remains on the instructor. Please do not interrupt a lesson. If you require assitance or have questions, please speak with someone at the registration desk. For security reasons, you may not approach a student or interfere with a group lesson.
  • Our goal is to help every child feel comfortable enough to participate. If a child truly does not want to participate, we may call the parent.
  • Class adjustments may be made during the lesson. All changes are at the discretion of the instructor.
  • A child's skill level can change with the conditions.
  • It may take one or more sessions for a child to use lift serviced terrain.
  • Skill development can occur on all types of terrain. The lesson will be taught on terrain appropriate for the entire class. Private lessons are available.
  • Please arrive early as the parking lots fill up quickly and it is inconvenient to the class when a child arrives late. Once lessons begin, it is difficult to locate upper level groups and students may be placed in a lower level group for the duration of that lesson.
  • In order to provide the most effective level of instruction, class sizes are limited. Register early on holidays/weekends!
  • Weekday session times may be reduced for classes with fewer than 3 students.
  • Progress cards are available at the end of each lesson. If you would like to speak with your child’s instructor, please arrive 15 mins prior to pick-up time.
