The Small Print
SCI will teach children aged 3 and older to ski and ask that they are toilet trained.
SCI will teach children aged 5 and older to snowboard but often they do better when they are older and have more developed muscles (7 or 8 years old.)
1. All lessons need to be paid at least 24 hours upfront.
2. If a lesson is booked less than 24 hours before the lessons starts, it must be paid as soon as possible and prior to the lesson start.
3. A lesson is confirmed and the spot on that day will be secured after the payment.
4. Equipment rental and lift tickets are not included in the lesson fee. All students will need to purchase a lift pass and snow sports equipment prior to the lesson stats. In general people spend about 1 hour sorting out their rental equipment. Make sure you calculate this in your time management before the lesson so you can spend all your time with the instructor on snow.
8. Our instructors love to work and we hate having to turn lessons down. Therefore we like to know early in advance in case you can’t make it to your lesson. Our cancellation policy is as follows:
– All cancellations must be made within a minimum of 48 hours in advance.
– If the lesson is cancelled between 24 and 48 hours in advance 50% of the lesson fee will be refunded.
– If the lesson is cancelled within 24 hours in advance there is no refund possible anymore.
9. If a lesson is booked less than 24 hours prior the lesson start there is no refund possible anymore.
SCI are sure you have questions are here to help. Ask them anything.
