Snowsports School COVID-19 Procedures

The Hidden Valley Snowsports School team have put together a comprehensive plan to make your lesson experience safe, fun and enjoyable. To view all of our Clean and Safe policies and procedures, please click here.

  • - All Snowsports Employees and Guests must wear a face covering when inside all lodges, at lineup areas, in registration lines, in lift lines and on lifts, and during a lesson when not actively skiing.
  • - Employees complete a daily health screening report.
  • - If the student is unable to complete the lesson, parents will be called for pickup.
  • - Online registration is required for all lessons. NO WALK UPS will be sold.
  • - The rental shop will be one way in and out. Please follow distancing and face covering procedures while you are in line and inside the building.
  • - Students will not ride the lift with members of the public. Students in a lesson may ride a lift together, however if the guest prefers to ride alone that may be accommodated. Guests who prefer to be taught in a small group with their friends or family may purchase a private herd lesson.
  • Please help us keep Hidden Valley safe for everyone by following these rules. If you or your child is sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.

Remember Snowsports’ top priorities are safety, fun, and learning. We look forward to seeing you this winter!
