SUTTON parent’s zone: weekend programs

HOW TO RESERVE

To reserve your spot at the Snow School, call us at 1-866-538-2545 (option 2) or send us your sign-up sheet by email to ecole@montsutton.com or by fax to 450-538-9902. At the moment of your reservation, one of our representatives will inform you of the remaining availabilities in your desired options and we require payment in full in order to finalize your inscription. Due to the high demand for certain programs and certain time slots, no reservation can be made without payment in full of the value of the course.

 

There are two sign-up periods: April 1st to May 15th & August 1st to December 31st, 2019. Spaces will be filled according to the order in which we receive reservations: hurry, spaces are limited!

 

If a program or time slot is no longer available at the time of your request, it will be possible to add your name to a waitlist, which only guarantees a space if another one is given up. We encourage you to select another option or time slot to ensure your participation in our weekend programs.

THE FIRST LESSON

 

EVALUATION METHODS & PROGRESS MONITORING

The Mont SUTTON Snow School allows their students the opportunity to gain more confidence on the slopes and to improve their technique in a fun, positive and safe environment. Through the years, students evolve through different skill levels predetermined by the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance (CSIA) and the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI). We strongly recommend that parents stay informed of their child’s progress, by asking the instructor at the end of each lesson. The instructor will be able to provide an idea of where your child can improve and how they measure up to the program’s objectives.

 

END-OF-PROGRAM COSTUME CARNAVAL

On the weekend of March 7-8, 2020, the Snow School hosts its traditional and well-loved COSTUME CARNAVAL. We invite all students to show off their most original costumes to celebrate the end of group lessons with their favourite instructor, who will of course also be in costume!

 

Don’t miss this at the last lesson:

 

PICTURE

An individual picture and a group picture are included free of cost with registration. Students must be present during the 3rd course, on the weekend of January 25-26, 2020. 5 Saturdays groups with classes every other weekend that start on January 4th will have their pictures taken on February 1st in the afternoon. There will be no make-up picture day for students who are absent.

 

Pictures will be distributed on the weekend of February 15-16 at the Snow School counter. Pictures that are not claimed during this weekend will be available at the Snow School counter until the end of the season.

 

AUTHORIZATION TO LEAVE UNACCOMPANIED

Children under the age of 13 are not authorized to leave unaccompanied at the end of a lesson. To allow your child to leave unaccompanied, please fill out the appropriate form and return it to the Snow School.

 

PROBLEMATIC BEHAVIOUR

If a student’s behaviour compromises the safety of the instructor, of another student or anyone else, the Snow School reserves the right to suspend the student for a period time it determines necessary, with no refund. The Snow School reserves this same right in the event that a student’s behaviour is detrimental to the progress of the lesson.
