If you have arranged equipment rentals for your 7-Week Group Lesson Program, get set-up prior to your lesson day by visiting Slopeside Skis & Boards during store hours. Please note, take-home ski rental packages are still available for pick-up.
PLEASE NOTE: Snowboard package rentals are not available to take home.
7-Week Snowboard Rental Packages and Non-Take-Home 7-Week Ski Rental Packages (including 7-Week Tot Packages):
Snowboard and Non-Take-Home Ski Packages will be available for pick-up on the day of each lesson from the Rental Shop and must be returned the same day. On your first day of lessons, please be at the Rental Shop at least one hour prior to your lesson start time to allow for processing and fitting of your equipment.
A rental agreement must be completed for each renting participant and submitted at initial pick-up. Please click here to complete this form in advance to save time during pick-up. Please note, this form MUST be printed in colour. Hard copies will also be available at the Rental Shop at pick-up.
Please note, a credit card or cash deposit of up to $350.00 is required on each rental package, on the first day of pick-up. A deposit of $30.00 is required on helmet rentals on the first day of pick-up. Renters under the age of 18 require a parent/guardian signature on the rental agreement. If all equipment is returned, in reasonable working condition, your card will not be charged and/or debit charge/cash deposit will be returned.
Our on-site retail store is also open for any purchases and/or equipment tune-ups and repairs. Stop by to get slope-ready!
If you have pre-purchased a Helmet-to-Own through our special offer on the Snow School registration form, your pre-order has been recorded for you at Slopeside Skis and Boards. Please visit during hours of operation and give your name to a retail associate for your personalized helmet fitting.
Please note, Brimacombe is not responsible for lesson time missed due to pick up wait times on the first day and missed class time will not be made up. No program credits or refunds will be considered on Lesson Program Rentals without the purchase of Lesson Program Protection.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All Snow School participants are required to wear an appropriate ski/snowboard helmet during their lesson. Participants may bring their own helmet or choose a rental option for an additional fee. Brimacombe is not responsible for lesson time missed due to failing to wear a helmet and/or an appropriate helmet.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR LESSON
Please arrive at least 60 minutes prior to your lesson start time to allow adequate time to complete any outstanding tasks such as pass pick-up, equipment rental pick-up and to find your class number. If you need to complete more than one task, please allow additional time.
Dress for the Weather
As an outdoor facility, Brimacombe is subject to many different weather conditions. If Brimacombe is open, scheduled programs will run. We recommend you take a moment to review the forecasted weather and dress appropriately – you can learn more here.
Arriving at Brimacombe
Please park in Parking Lot #4 via Gate #4 to ensure easy access to your check-in location, rental shop and lesson meeting point.
We know you’re excited to watch, however it’s important that all spectators/non-participants respect our lift-ticket only zones. Non-participant foot traffic is not allowed on the slopes, including Bambi run. Please do not go beyond the “Lift ticket required beyond this point” signs.
Equipment Rental Packages
If you need to pick up pre-booked rentals on the day of your lesson, please be at the Rental Shop at least 60 minutes prior to your lessons start time to allow for processing and fitting of your equipment.
Please note, a credit card or cash deposit of up to $350.00 is required on each rental package, on the first day of pick-up. A deposit of $30.00 is required on helmet rentals on the first day of pick-up. Renters under the age of 18 require a parent/guardian signature on the rental agreement.
Finding your Class
Class numbers will be emailed to you in a separate email prior to your lesson. An on-hill supervisor will be present to help guide and assist you to your class number. Please arrive at the Snow School 15 minutes prior to your lesson. Classes will line up at their numbers posted on the fence line across from the conveyor lift on the Bambi run. For snowboarders, your number is most likely posted on the fence going up the slope. Please proceed directly to your assigned class number and an instructor will be there to greet you at your lesson start time.
Participants in a scheduled Snow School program will have slope-access for the duration of their lesson only. Each participant must wear their 7-Week Participant card, unless they have a valid membership or season pass card, which must be worn when using the lifts for the duration of the lesson.
If you have not yet picked-up your lesson program card(s) or if you have not yet received your program card(s) please read the instructions above. Participants looking to ski or snowboard before or after their scheduled lesson time, will need to purchase a lift ticket or have a valid membership/season pass.
