Yes, they can. However they need to be of similar age and ability.
Our group sizes are age and program specific.
Please refer to our cancellation policy.
We set aside an extra weekend during the programs (Family Day Weekend) as make up days for the 8 week programs if there is a cancellation.
For Christmas and March Break Camps a day will be added to the end of the camp.
Make up days are for weather related cancellations only.
We have found that 4 years of age is a good time to start skiing programs and that 9 years of age is about right for snowboarding programs. For adults, any age is a good time to start either sport.
If you take a private lesson we guarantee you will be making turns by the end of your first lesson.
We encourage parents to spend time with their children on beginner terrain allowing young skiers to become familiar with the equipment and environment of skiing. This introduction to the sensation of gliding on snow can be done whenever you and the child are physically ready and feel comfortable outdoors in the winter. Go for quality time on the snow with your young one, not quantity. You'll have plenty of time to ski with them as they get older and it is important to keep their intial experiences positive.
3 year olds are always welcome in a private lesson.
Yes, we do. Call us and we will discuss a lesson plan suited to your child’s individual needs.
Yes, rental equipment is always available. The Ski Shop has package deals for the 8 week programs.
Discounted rates also available for Christmas Camp and March Break Camp participants.
A full day lift pass is included in the lift and lesson price of programs. For all other lessons a lift pass will be provided for the duration of the lesson.
Children 5 years of age and younger ski and ride for free. A daily pass is required for these children but can be picked up at the Devil's Elbow ticket office each morning.
Kawartha Ski and Snowboard School is at Devil’s Elbow Ski Area. This family resort is 30 minutes west of Peterborough in central Ontario and features 6 chairlifts (including 4 quads).
We are open daily from 9:00am – 4:30 pm all season long (closed Christmas Day).
A normal season begins mid-December and goes through the end of March.
On the first day of your program Devil’s Elbow staff will be in the main Chalet (beginning at 8:30am) to take your child’s photograph for a lift pass card. They will issue each student an all day ticket good for that day and the pass can be picked up the following weekend at the Snowschool office.
Please allow plenty of extra time on this first day. Instructors will meet students 15 minutes before the scheduled start time to organize the groups and pass out lift passes to students who have registered for the 'lesson's only' programs. 'Lift and Lesson' students will need extra time to set up their 8 week lift pass.
This lift ticket will be issued at the start of each lesson by the instructor and is valid only for the duration of the lesson. This ticket has a value of $10.63 which can be credited toward the purchase of any ticket that day. It is not transferable.
