PRO TIP
Please be aware that although Tots 2-6 years of age ski for free at Mount Washington they still require a ticket to be on the slopes at all times. If you have your tot in a lesson please give yourself extra time to arrange to acquire a ticket so you are not late or holding up others, being courteous and patient will help everyone have a great experience together.

Know Before You Go

Reservations are strongly encouraged. Please go online to mountwashington.ca to book or call (250) 338-1386 ext 384, to speak with a lesson specialist. Class sizes are limited to ensure fun and safety

Know before you go! Prepare to make the most of your time with us on the snow.
  • Allow a minimum of 1.25 hours between your arrival in the resort or departing your condo and the lesson start time (i.e. for a 9 am lesson, plan to arrive by 8 am).
  • If you already have equipment please proceed directly to the outdoor lesson meeting areas. If you require a pass please visit the Ticket Windows outside of the Alpine Lodge.
  • You are responsible for supervising your child (4+ years) prior to meeting the instructor on the snow 10 minutes prior to the scheduled lesson start time.
  • Please be aware that all lessons start promptly at the scheduled start time regardless of weather conditions or reduced lift operations. There are no refunds for missed lessons.
  • Consider checking in the night before! On nights that the resort is open for night skiing, you are welcome to visit us in the Experience Centre until 8 pm.
  • You are responsible for supervising your child (4yr +) prior to meeting the instructor on the snow 10 minutes prior to the scheduled lesson start time.
  • Please be aware that all lessons start promptly at the scheduled start time regardless of weather conditions or reduced lift operations. There are no refunds for missed lessons.
  • You are responsible for meeting your child in the assigned meeting place outside Mountain Kids. Mount Washington is responsible for supervising your child during scheduled lesson times only. Tots will not be released on their own and you may be charged for additional care.
Knowing your reservation number will speed up the check-in process. If possible, please also have this handy upon arrival. Thanks for choosing to visit us at the Mount Washington Snow School! We look forward to welcoming you on the snow you soon.

FAQs

Can I get a refund if my ski season does not go as planned?

A) The add-on Pass Refundable Option allows you to receive a pro-rated refund or deferral of your season pass for the following reasons:

1. Medical – An injury or illness which prevents the use of the pass for the duration of the season that is valid.  The refund is not applicable for an interim injury or illness.

2. Employment Transfer – A transfer by the pass holder’s current employer requiring a change of residence off Vancouver Island and surrounding islands. The refund is not applicable when voluntarily leaving the area for work or travel.
Any family member unable to ski the remainder of the season due to your injury, illness or move, will also receive a refund provided they have purchased the refundable option. Refunds are not available for reasons outside of the list above
