Ski Rental Information

You will need to bring your own cross country ski equipment or seasonal ski rentals, which are available to anyone who needs them.

Ski rental scholarships are also available at no cost for use throughout the Jalbert series if you do not have skis.

If you need a seasonal rental or ski rental scholarship, please make arrangements at the rental shop before the day of your first lesson.  The Rental Shop is located on lower level of Lodge and open 12-3 on Saturday/Sundays. Equipment sizes are limited…first come, first serve.


Covid-19 Information

We have had to make some important modifications to the program in order to keep everyone safe while still having fun, as follows:

  • There will be a maximum of 15 students each session, with three students per instructor. Masks or ski buffs must be worn at all times by participants and instructors, and everyone will be required to maintain social distancing of six feet at all times as well.
  • Bathrooms will be open on the lower level, but the lodge will be closed. We are sorry, but we will not be able to provide refreshments this year.
  • Parents are required to remain on the premises during the duration of the classes. Please use your own vehicles to warm up, and you can bring your own water and snacks for your child if you would like.
