Do I need to know how to ski/snowboard?
No, but you need to make sure your expectations are reasonable. If you have never skied or snowboarded before you should plan to take a lesson and plan to stay on the beginner slopes. Skiing and Snowbaording are difficult and they take time to really learn how to do it well. To expect to learn in one trip is unrealistic.
If you have never ski/snowboarded before you must take a lesson.
Does everyone have to Ski/Snowboard together?
No. Like a trip to an amusement park, you will arrive together and depart together, but in between, you will be allowed to explore and enjoy the mountain. Chaperones will be skiing and enjoying the trips as well, keeping a general eye on things. There will always be a chaperone in the lodge at Base Camp.
Could you get hurt while skiing or snowboarding?
Yes. Which is why it’s important that all club members follow the rules of the mountain and make good choices while on the slopes. Accidents happen no matter what sport you are participating in and winter sports are no different. Skiers and Snowboarders need to know their limits and know when a situation is too risky.
To be as safe as possible, ALL skiers and snowboarders will be required to wear a helmet.
