Two Week Extension

High Rockies will form classes as usual.

Skiers will not be accepted or placed in class until full tuition for the extension is paid.

As some of the six week classes will be combined, your skier may not have the same instructor as the six week program.

Morning drop off is at Lionshead ski school yard at 8:30 (same as the six week program). Afternoon pick up is at 3:30 west of the gondola.

Bus transportation is NOT provided.
