My child hasn’t skied before, does that matter?

No. Our coaches will take anyone and turn them into a skier!. Skiers over the age of 9 who are new to skiing can register in the All mountain shredder program and will advance to racing as their skills develop.

When do we start?

As soon as Springhill is open and the snow is on the ground! We end the third week of March.

Where do I get equipment?

Sampsons have lease programs for junior skiers as well as new equipment for purchase.

Will we ski in cold weather?

There is a section on our website with guideline for cold weather. Follow the Cold Weather link.
What is the volunteer/fundraising commitment?

The club requires volunteering at two bingos throughout the year. There is also volunteers needed on race day as the parents put the races on. All volunteer training is provided by the club if needed. Volunteering is a great way to meet other parents and interact with the racers.
