If you are using your own equipment, please make sure that it is all in good working condition before arriving for your first lesson. It is a parental responsibility to make sure a child's equipment fits properly and to determine the equipment is in proper working order. Practice putting the equipment on at home so your child is familiar with its use. Be sure to label all equipment including gloves (mittens) and goggles.
You or your child should dress in layers and you should be sure to label all your child's clothing. Be prepared for changes in the weather! Warm, dry clothing for the ride home is also a good idea!
WARNING! Wearing all these items on a warmer day may cause extreme overheating…use your judgement to decide what is too hot to wear.
We do not sell Sno-Park permits, but you can pick them up at the USFS Snoqualmie Pass Visitors Center located at the base of Summit West. Open Thursday-Sunday 9am- 3pm.
Reservations are strongly recommended as kids lessons do sell out. Avoid disappointment by placing reservations as far in advance as possible. Reservations can be made online with 36 hours advance notice, by phone with 36 hours advance notice, or on operating days only, in person at Kid’s Club or Kid’s Corral.
Private Lessons are very popular and do reach capacity before reservation deadlines. For more information check the Private Lessons page or call 425-434-6748.
However, there are plenty of lesson opportunities for children 3 and up. Expose them early to our beautiful mountain environment and the joy of snowsports!
Three year olds can participate in Alpentykes multi-week lesson, ski only. Please be aware, Alpentykes fills up extremely fast. If your child snowboards or did not get into Alpentykes, we recommend private lessons.
Half day kids lessons do not include lunch, but do include refreshments on breaks.
Consecutive Week Programs do not included lunch. But remember to provide a bag lunch for Alpentykes at Alpental.
A consecutive week lesson program allows a student to pre-register for a set number of weeks of lessons (usually 4, 6 or 8) at the same time, same place and generally with the same instructors and students. Consecutive week lesson students meet at the numbered signs within the Summit SnowSports School meeting areas at Summit West, Summit Central and Alpental. Lessons DO NOT meet at rental shops.
Consecutive week lessons require pre-registration, freeing you up from lesson paperwork each week! Just be sure to check the posted roster each week to see if your instructors changed your class assignment. See Consecutive Week Lessons.
Consecutive week lessons are also known as multi-week lessons.
Please allow even more time on Weekends and Holidays.
Our beginner lesson program at Summit Central is available for walk-ups only, no advanced reservation is required. You can check in and register at our rental shop at Summit Central.
At Summit Central we recommend starting your registration process at least one hour before desired lesson start time. Students participating in day 2 lessons, and anyone other than first-time beginners, meet for lessons at 1:30pm ONLY at Summit Central.
The Summit at Snoqualmie is a mountain environment. The Summit highly recommends you carry chains in your vehicle in the winter and fit your vehicle with snow tires. Conditions can change at any moment. Click here to see current road conditions.
