    Our commitment to privacy

    Protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information is fundamental to the way we do business at Snowhawks Raven. To us, providing you with the best client service includes handling your personal information with great care and respect.

    Your privacy protection is assured

    By signing your Registration Form, you consent to provide us with your personal information. In turn, we agree to protect the privacy of that information in compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. Since January 1, 2004, this Act requires every organization to obtain the consent of individuals before collecting, using or disclosing personal information in the course of a commercial activity. The Act sets down the ground rules for how Snowhawks Raven can collect, use or disclose your personal information.

    Using your personal information to your advantage

    As a Snowhawks Raven client, you have entrusted us with your personal information such as your name, address, phone number, birth date, medical information, etc. We use this information to communicate with you, provide medical information in the course of caring for our members, and act as required or authorized by law.

    How we protect your information

    We protect your information at all times with appropriate safeguards and security measures. Our strict security standards protect our systems and your personal information against unauthorized access or use. Access to your file is restricted to our personnel or select representatives.

  • Returned Cheques +

    Will be subject to a $20 administrative fee.

  • Helmets +

    • Helmets are mandatory for all kids on all programs including Christmas Traveller, Mount St. Louis Traveller, Blue Mountain Traveller and Spring Break Programs.
    • Helmets are not mandatory, yet recommended on our Wednesday Adult Getaway.
  • Refund Policy +

    If your child is sick and is experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid19, you must keep them home for that day.  You will be required to have your child tested within 2 days and the results made known to us by the following Thursday.  This will allow for proper contact tracing and protocols for those who may have come into contact with them.  A credit will be given for the day missed.  If the child tests positive for Covid19, a refund will be issued for the time missed (please note there is a $100 administration fee).

    If we are forced by public health officials to shut down on account of Covid19, clients will be issued a prorated refund, less a $100 administration fee.

    There is a $100 administration charge for cancellations prior to Dec. 1 (Feb. 15, for Spring Break Programs). No refunds after these dates.

    Please note that we must charge a $100 administration fee given that there are significant costs in preparation for this season.

  • Missed Days +

    • There will be no makeup days allowed this season due to Covid19 due to space restrictions on our buses and in our groups.
    • For those on the Wednesday Adult Getaway program, you may be a spouse or family member over the age of 18 in lieu of your missed day.
    • There is no carry over to future years for make-ups.

    Code of Conduct

    • All members are expected to exhibit exemplary and appropriate behavior at all times including time spent on the bus, within the group environment and in the chalet.
    • Verbal or physical harassment (including bullying) to other members, staff or the general public will not be tolerated. Refrain from intimidation of any student or adult in the school or the public. This includes any form of physical aggression, swearing or foul language.  Treat each other in a respectful manner, using appropriate language and actions.
    • Behavior or actions that reduce the positive experiences of others will not be tolerated and may result in dismissal.
    • Listen and follow directions given by staff members
    • Members are not permitted to possess and/or consume alcohol or illegal drugs. Breaking this rule will result in immediate dismissal from the Program.
    • Kids and teens may not smoke anything including drugs, cigarettes or e-cigarettes. So doing may result in dismissal from the Program.
    • Snowhawks reserves the right to remove any members from our program, with no refund, if this code is not adhered to.

    Medical Disclosure

    Group Lesson Format
