Our HPSC instructors are excited to finally be able to run lessons for our members! As you prepare for your day, here are some things to be aware of that may impact your experience.
Your car is your “home base”. You’ll be at your car to put your boots on, eat lunch, and warm up.
Indoor dining is unavailable. Some resorts (e.g. Blue) have some outdoor dining set up. Bring a lunch if you don’t have plans.
Washrooms are available. Indoor warming up spaces are not.
Members must book their lift tickets themselves separate from the drive-up registration. To ski at the private clubs, as long as you’ve sign up for the event, the club will make sure your name’s on the guest list.
The Mount St Louis check-in process may be time consuming. Give yourself an extra 20+ minutes to go through the lineups before your lesson start time.
Lift lines and chairlifts:
At the public resorts, chairlifts are generally being filled to the maximum, loading singles to fill them up.
Be forewarned that some members of the general public do not consistently wear their masks in lift lines or on chairs, and physical distancing doesn’t always happen in lift lines – and that some members have observed the resorts are not always enforcing mask-wearing.
HPSC Members are to wear masks in lesson groups. Instructors will run a COVID screener at the lesson start.
We will aim to keep some space between participants, but we’re also in a constantly changing environment. If you feel it’s getting crowded, pull back and give yourself space.
While we’re on the hill, if you have any safety concerns, please let the instructor know and they will accommodate as best as they can.
While we can manage our own participants, we’re still skiing with the general public who follow varying levels of safety.
If you are sick, please stay home!
Please keep your mask on in the lift line, chairlift, and in lessons.
Check the resort for specific information on their policies and practices.
We’re asking everyone to be patient and kind.
Have a great day trip! We are looking forward to skiing and riding with you.
