Tips for Kids

Tips for Young Kids (ages 3-6) - Child Ski Center Programs

  • Start with a private lesson if possible, your child's focused attention and rapid progress is worth the extra expense. After your child can make a wedge or snowplow, they will progress well in a group atmosphere.
  • Prepare your child for the separation, as we are unable to accept children who do not want to join us. Be back on time to pick them up.
  • Younger kids may not be ready for the full day program, especially if they still take naps. 
  • Have your child's personal claim check ready at pick up time. For your child's security we will only release the child to the person who has the claim check.
  • It is a parental responsibility to decide if your child wears a ski helmet, but we provide them for all Child Ski Center lesson programs. We urge parents to carefully read the information provided at www.lidsonkids.org.

Tips for Older Children (ages 7-12) - Sierra Scouts

  • Plan to arrive early to get your child ready for class on time. You will need to reserve your lesson at the Ticket Windows, go through the rental process, and walk to the lesson meeting area before the lesson start time. If you have a reservation you still need to go to the Ticket Windows to pick up your lesson and rental vouchers and go through the rental process. 
  • If you do not have a reservation, arrive early (especially on weekends & holidays) to make sure you can get a spot and get your child to class on time.
  • Please, ensure you personally meet your children on time when the lesson is over.
  • We highly recommend the all day program which includes lunch and all day supervision 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Space is limited, so book early!
  • It is a parental responsibility to decide if your child wears a ski helmet, but we highly recommend it and helmets are available for rent at the Rental Shop. We urge parents to carefully read the information provided at www.lidsonkids.org.
