Temperature checks are required of all students participating in ski school classes. Students with a temperature of 100.4 F or higher will not be allowed to participate.
  • We will not offer all-days lessons this season. To offer lessons to the greatest number of people with our current capacity restrictions, students are limited to one 1-hour private or half-day group class per day. 
  • The minimum age for lessons is age 4.

Other Participation Policies, specific to kid's programs: Children in lessons should be prepared to ride lifts with snowsports instructors, other children, or by themselves. Your child will not always ride ski lifts with an instructor, if you want your child to always ride with an instructor, you must arrange for a one-to-one private lesson. 

Your child must be toilet trained - not in diapers or pull-ups for on-snow programs. 

Instructors will do their best to promote fun and information learning, however, they will not force a child to participate and our staff will notify you to come to pick them up. Lutsen Mountains does not refund money for children who do not want to be on snow and are in our care. 

If your child is experiencing any flu-like symptoms, please refrain from bringing them into our program. If they should suddenly develop any flu-like symptoms while in our care, our staff will notify you to come to pick them up. 

We do not allow peanut butter or peanut products in our facility.

Cell phones are prohibited during children's lessons. We suggest that all devices are left with a parent and/or guardian if a device is left in our Snowsports Center Lutsen Mountains is not responsible for the device if it is lost or stolen.
