Unless the Snow School has canceled a program, there are no make-up lessons for group programs. If you are unable to make a class due to unforeseen circumstances and would like to enquire about an additional date, please email the Program Director with your request. It is our goal to have the children as active and involved in the program as possible, but we cannot disrupt other lessons to accommodate missed lessons for reasons such as vacation, scheduling conflicts, other sporting events etc. Private lessons that have been rescheduled may make arrangements for make-up lessons with 24 hours’ notice. Please note that a change of a regular lesson date may result in a different instructor. Please be sure to make a request for the instructor of your choice.
Cold Weather Policy
Every morning the Ski School will decide if programs are to run or not, considering the weather conditions. In the case of forecasted temperatures of -20 or below at the time of lessons, ski school programs may be canceled. Likewise, if the weather is too extreme to continue with lessons, they will be rescheduled. Where possible, based on forecasted temperatures, a notification of cancellation will be made by email no later than 6 pm on the day prior to the program.
Temperatures at Norquay often differ from those in Banff and the surrounding area. Snow School and Ski Patrol monitor forecasts and temperatures every hour during the day starting at 6:45 am. We take guest and staff safety very seriously when making these decisions.
In the case of a canceled program day a make-up day will be applied where possible, if this is not possible credit will be issued and can be applied to a future program or lesson.
