Cascade Kids' Learning Program (for ages 4 - 10)
Safety, fun, proper technique, and the basics of skiing or snowboarding are what we teach in our Cascade Kids program. Trained instructors (who love kids!) will be with your children. Cascade Kids $55 per session.
Package includes day/night ticket, 3 hours of skiing/snowboarding instruction and a snack. Helmet is included for the session and rental equipment can be added for $34. Reservations strongly recommended.
Early season sessions tentative on our opening date. Check website, or call to confirm early season dates.
|How do I determine the ski /snowboard level for my child?||You can use the chart below to help you decide, but the instructor can help with that determination at the start of the lesson.|
|Do I have to stay with my child the whole time?||No, just leave them with their instructor during the lesson. There will be a break time in the middle of the lesson, we provide them with a snack and you could visit with them then.|
|Can I stay near them while they are doing the lesson?||We really don't recommend the parents stay with the children. It can be distracting to them, and interfere with the learning process. We do have a lounge area in the upper level of the main building that overlooks the beginner area if you would like to watch from a distance.|
|Do you have younger / and older instructors?||We have both young and older, experienced and certified instructors.|
|Where do I go when I get to cascade?||As soon as you arrive go to the SNOW SPORTS SCHOOL located in the main lodge building. You can pay for everything there, even the adult's tickets and rentals.|
|Do I need to fill out any waivers?||Yes, the Cascade Kids Waiver. You can find it HERE. Print it out, fill in all the information and bring it with you when you come.|
|What time should we be there?||If you need to rent equipment you should come at least 1 hour before the lesson. If you do not need rentals at least a half hour before is fine. Coming early for the morning session is recommended regardless if you're renting or not.|
|How many kids are in each lesson?||It depends on the session really, but the cascade kids program tries to keep 4 or 5 kids per instructor.|
|How do you "separate" the kids?||The kids are grouped by skiing / snowboarding ability.|
|What if all the sessions are booked?||If all the sessions are filled for the day you wanted we have other lesson programs you could chose. Children ages 4-9 would need a private lesson. Private lessons are $60/hour for the first child. If you have additional children that need a private lesson it would be $30 per additional child. Children 10+ can chose either a private lesson or a group lesson. Group lessons are $20 per person.(Reservations are not needed for group lessons.) Private lessons are based on instructor availability.|
|Who can I contact if I have any other questions?||You can send us an email HERE, or call us at 1-608-742-5588.|
