Sorry, no refunds. Lessons that are cancelled at least 24 hours before scheduled time will be rescheduled subject to availability. If cancellation of your lesson is necessary, please call Bittersweet Ski School at (269) 694-2820, ext 4. In the event that lessons or programs need to be cancelled and/or rescheduled due to circumstances such as weather or resort closure, information will be posted on www.skibittersweet.com, and ski school staff will attempt to contact you. Weather cancellations or closures are extremely rare but could occur due to such things as dangerous wind chills, high winds, excessive rain, or lack of snow due to unseasonably warm temperatures.
Lessons and programs begin promptly at the scheduled time. Please ensure that you arrive at the resort early enough to allow for plenty of time to park, check in for your lesson, pick up lift tickets and rentals, and get all gear and equipment on, so that you can meet your instructor at the scheduled meeting place by the scheduled start time. For most people, arriving an hour ahead of your scheduled lesson time is adequate. However, on some busy days it might be necessary to allot more than an hour of “get-ready” time. If unavoidable circumstances create a situation where you are going to be late, please call the ski school at (269) 694-2820 ext 4 and notify them as soon as you are able.
It is your responsibility to make sure that you book yourself and others in your party into the correct ability level group/s. We are happy to help with appropriate grouping if you are unsure. Please refer to our web page for detailed descriptions of the lessons and programs, or call the ski school at (269) 694-2820, ext. 4 with questions or for help. If we believe that incorrect information has been provided to us regarding the level or age of a participant, and that information affects others in the group or the instructor’s ability to conduct the lesson or program, we reserve the right to exclude them from the lesson or program.
Helmets are not required, but strongly recommended. Please see FAQs on the Bittersweet Ski School web page https://www.skibittersweet.com/snow-school/ski-and-snowboard-school-faqs/ for tips on how to dress appropriately.
