Individual Assessment Policy
Participants will be placed in a class based on their ability, not on the level of terrain on which they have previously skied or ridden. On the first day, after verbally assessing each child, staff will place the children into specific groups. Each group will then be assessed on-snow. Adjustments will be made at this time. If your child has skied before, you can make his first day more enjoyable by coaching him to show his very best efforts during the on-snow assessment. Do not misrepresent her/his age or ability as this undermines the class, the coach and, most importantly, does a disservice to your child.
- Do not bring your child to Snowburners if she/he is sick. She/he could make the coach and other participants sick, too.
- If your child has special medical needs, write instructions on your registration form and notify your coach on the first day.
- If your child misses a lesson she/he may fall behind her group and need to be moved to a different group. There are no make-up days in Snowburners. If your child is unable to make it on a specific day we cannot switch him to a different class because it disrupts the class dynamic.
Skiing is a winter sport with wonderful weather, however the weather can also involve changes to roads, parking, slopes, lift and resort operations due to freezing temperatures, wind and strong precipitation. Please plan accordingly, including but not limited to lesson arrival time, protective clothing choice and understanding that each day can require adjustment to schedules and protective clothing, as weather changes.
If Arizona Snowbowl is open, classes will be held. If there is new snow, chains and 4-wheel drive may be required. Leave more time for driving. Drive slowly and use good winter defensive driving techniques.
Assumption of Risk
Parents must sign liability paperwork upon check in on the first day, January 21. View and download Registration Form and Liability Release.
If your child is injured or ill, he/she will be transported to one of our Ski Patrol First Aid Rooms, located below Hart Prairie Chairlift or inside Agassiz Lodge. Parent/Guardian will be contacted by the phone number provided on the enrollment form. In addition, parent/guardian names will be written on the message boards at the base of each lift. Injured children will remain in the First Aid Room until the parent/legal guardian arrives.
