Parent Info

The Sunday program is available beginning January 11, 2015 through March 29, 2015, excluding MLK Sunday January 18, and both Sundays of Presidents Week, February 15 and February 22. The Thursday program is available from January 11, 2015 through March 29, 2015, excluding Presidents Week, February 19. It is very important for attendance to be consistent or your child may have to move groups accordingly or be dropped from the program.

Sunday groups meet outside on the snow by Alpine Meadows Ski & Snowboard School Sign. Each week children meet their coach at a pre-designated sign. Kids drop their lunch off in an assigned bin and say good-bye to their parents. Thursday groups meet at the Kids Camp Magic Carpet, to the left of the lodge.

Groups leave at 9am. If you are running late, instructors will take one run and return to the meeting to pick up any latecomers. If you miss the 2nd check-in, you can join us at lunch. Lunches are taken between 11:20 am and 12:00 pm in the Mountaineers Room and Kids Camp. Please check in with a supervisor to see where your child’s lunch is located.

Students will need to bring their lunch in a disposable bag and will not be able to go to the cafeteria to purchase food.  Make sure you clearly label the lunch with a first and last name. Please take into consideration our lunch room is small, which limits parent visitation. Alpine Kids is not responsible for lunch boxes and we cannot return them at the end of the day. If your child has special dietary needs for their lunchbox, please speak with a supervisor.

Group Placement
The first day and a half is spent getting children into the appropriate groups, which is based on age and ability level. For the remainder of the season, children stay with their designated group. If the coaches and supervisors see a need to adjust a child’s placement, we will move them as necessary. Instructors are focused on building technique using appropriate terrain to develop abilities in anticipation of more challenging terrain. Our focus is on skill, using all mountain terrain.

Chairlift Riding Policy
Be advised that your child may be riding lifts alone or with other children or adults, while enrolled in these programs. Please review the most recent Children’s Chairlift Code of Conduct, and help us to train your child to understand the importance of sitting back, holding on, and no fooling around, while on a lift. Click here to review our chairlift riding policies.

We will run regardless of weather conditions 99% of the time. It is very rare for us to cancel the program due to weather, however if there is a resort closure we will determine a plan of action that morning. An email will be sent out as late as 8:30am, regarding any changes. Please do not call the supervisor’s office as they have on-hill duties. See the snow & grooming report

Make-up Sessions
It is your responsibility to participate in the days designated for the program. We do not offer makeup days or drop-ins, and you may only participate on the day and time you registered for. 

All students must have the following: eye protection, helmet, pass, sunscreen, gloves or mittens, skis and boots, and appropriate snow clothing. Snacks are not provided, so please send a snack in a pocket.

Tips to make your day go smoothly…

  • Arrive on time, with boots, skis/board, and pass. Be ready to go!
  • Sundays are busier than most think, please leave early in anticipation for traffic and parking delays.
  • Plan ahead for picking up your pass and rental gear (if you need it).
  • All students must have eye protection, gear, lift pass, helmets, sun screen, and appropriate clothing for the weather.
  • Feed your child a healthy breakfast and/or lunch.
  • Include a snack in your child’s pocket. Snacks are not provided.
  • Remind your child to stay with their group at all times.
