July 2021 (dates to be confirmed)  

These weekend are for beginners and also those that can ski and snow board and want some time on the snow before and after Snow Sport Week.  We have booked accommodation at the Albertown Lodge and have booked Instructors at Cardrona.  Hire gear will be available at Cardrona.

Athletes will be required to bring a parent/caregiver with them for the weekend.  We do not expect this person to ski if they don’t want to.  We will have our band of experienced volunteers to help on the ski field.  The parent/caregiver can of course bring more than one athlete with them.

Albertown Lodge has excellent kitchen facilities.  Athletes are to supply their own breakfast, lunch and dinner.  There is a hotel across the road from the Lodge that does evening meals and Cardrona have a canteen for lunches on the ski field.

The cost for this weekend will be approximately $200.00 per athlete.  This includes accommodation for 2 nights, lift passes, instruction and gear hire for the 2 days.  Athletes with Season Passes please let me know as the cost will be slightly less.

Alternative care can be used to pay for this.  Forms are available from the Ministry of Heath.
