FAQ

What if I need to cancel or make changes?

Please see our cancellation policy.

If you need to make changes, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate. Please contact us and we will do our best to make things work.

Do we have to go through this program to access the hill with our students?

Yes, Schools on Snow is subsidized by the Department of Education, and a funding requirement is that youth come through this program.

Why are we limited with how many students can attend the mandatory first lesson?

We have limited instructor availability on Fridays. We will do our best to accommodate as many students as possible while staying within our safety ratios. The best way to get in is to give us advanced notice with a completed registration form.

We are a school from one of the communities and can't make it on a Friday. Can we still participate in this program?

We understand that not everyone is able to make it on Fridays. If you are a school who would like to access the hill outside of regular school hours, please contact us to make special arrangements.

What is Mt Sima doing in the face of COVID-19?

To ensure we are keeping you (and us) safe, face coverings will be mandatory for instructors and students while in a lesson. Please refer to our COVID-19 page for more details on our new normal.
