Participation - Participants must be at least 10 years old to participate in this program, must be self sufficient and able to care for themselves and carry their equipment to and from the bus. We recommend the younger kids sign up with a friend and 10-12 year olds are required to take lessons. The chaperones are not readily available during the day but can be reached if necessary. Participants are responsible to be ON TIME when the bus leaves the mountain.
Helmets - For safety reasons we highly recommend all participants wear helmets. See www.lidsonkids.org for more information.
Equipment - Each participant must have up-to-date equipment including boots, skis or snowboard, poles, ski brake device or leashes and bindings (which have been specifically adjusted to fit the skier's or boarder's boots). All equipment must be in good working condition and checked by a ski shop tech before program starts. Warm ski gear and goggles are a must!
Lift Tickets - Participants can buy discount lift tickets on the bus. Discount ticket costs are: $40 for ages 7 - 15 and $60 for ages 16 - 69. Participants must pay with EXACT CASH to receive discount tickets.
Lessons - Clancy's program is 6 weeks of lessons (starting January 7) at a cost of $165 for ages 5-11 and $145 for ages 12+. We recommend lessons for everyone and we have lessons available for every ability. Clancy's is offering some exciting classes to keep kids challenged and interested in learning. Lessons are mandatory for 10-12 year olds and beginner skiers and snowboarders. Lessons are half-day (two hours) from 10am - Noon. If needed, full day lessons are available for an extra charge. The bus departs the mountain at 4:30pm so there is plenty of opportunity for kids to explore the mountain outside of lessons.
Stevens Pass - For more Stevens Pass mountain information, please contact Stevens Pass at 206-812-4510 or www.stevenspass.com.
Refunds - The last day to request a refund is December 15th. However, if a participant is injured, we do refund the registration fee on a pro-rated basis, contingent upon a physician's recommendation. There will be no make-up lessons or refunds for classes missed by a student. As we cannot control the weather, we cannot guarantee six consecutive weeks. However, we do guarantee to provide services within the normal ski season (Jan - Mar) or we will return any unused portion of the fee. A 10% service fee will be charged for all refunds and credits.
Chaperones - We are looking for Snowrider chaperones! If you are interested, click here for more information and a Volunteer Application.
Bus and ski school will only be cancelled if the pass is closed.

Space can be very limited on the bus. Our first priority is to provide seats to the riders who have enrolled for the season. If space allows, we will make a few seats available to 'a la carte' riders. 'A la carte' riders must be at least 13 years old (unless accompanied by a parent/guardian) and experienced on the mountain. The fee for one-time riders is $55 per trip. Registration & payment is required 3 days prior to riding. We recommend that you register much earlier.
