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 visit our online store. 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 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 2 sign-up periods:

Pre-Registration in April for the following season. During this time, you will be ensured to get our best rates of the season and you will have the best chance at getting that specific spot you want.

Registration resumes on September 1st and takes place until the end of December. Depending on the program and time slot, some options will become full rapidly due to the high demand. Spaces are filled according to the order in which we receive requests. Be assured, however, that our team will be happy to offer you all possible options in order to find a program that will suit your family!

 

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.

School Card tickets are valid only on the chosen day, from January 8/9 2022. This card is non-transferable; one ticket a day, issued to the cardholder.

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 12-13, 2022, 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!

 

PICTURE

One individual and one group photo will be taken during the 3rd class of the 9 week program. Every 2nd weekend groups will have their photo session on their 2nd class. Students must be present during the predetermined class to have their picture taken. There will be no make-up picture day for students who are absent. In the event of very bas weather, The Snow School may postpone the picture date to the following week.

 

You will be able to order the pictures on the website of the photograph with the code that your child will receive. You will be able to purchase your photos online ($) and they will be delivered to a “Jean Coutu” of your choice or directly to your home.

 

CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OLD

Children under the age of 13 are not authorized to leave unaccompanied at the end of a lesson. At all times, parents must be present at the end of each lesson to pick up their children.

 

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.
