What if we don’t own equipment?

 

No problem. Every area has rental equipment or call Resorts of the Canadian Rockies for special rates on children's equipment packages.

It is highly recommended at the mountain areas.


What if I as the parent or guardian don’t ski or snowboard?

 

Now would be a great time to try skiing or snowboarding! All resorts offer beginner packages that include a lift ticket, lesson and equipment rental at a discounted rate. You can call the ski area and ask them about their Learn to Ski or Snowboard packages.


Who will be teaching my child and myself?

 

All the ski and snowboard instructors are certified by either the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance, the Canadian Ski Coaches’ Federation and the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors. Ask for a Certified Instructor for your next lesson and see your skiing and snowboarding skills improve very quickly.


What will it cost me to get a Sport Chek Stars Grade 2 FunPass™?

 

The only cost is a nominal $20.00 processing fee (plus GST) to help cover the cost of processing your application of your child’s FunPass™. After that your child can ski and snowboard all winter for free!
