All children must  wear a helmet while skiing or snowboarding.



 We will all hire equipment as a group from the mountain unless you have your own equipment. (Please do not hire equipment with your clothing and helmets the night before as there will not be enough room in the vehicles)

All parents/ caregivers sending children with their own ski & snowboard equipment must make sure their equipment is safe for use on the mountain. Boot heels on ski boots are especially important. Din settings need to be checked on skis. Binding straps need to be done up tight on snowboards.

All the above and more safety checks can be done by taking your equipment to the local ski hire shops.

Kuratau Snow Squad will not be responsible for faulty equipment and we reserve the right to hire appropriate equipment at the cost to the parent/ caregiver if the equipment does not comply to safety regulations.



TRANSPORT is by private vehicle. 


Skiers and Snowboarders are expected to ring their driver to make arrangements for pick up at 7.30 am sharp and for drop off at 3.00pm.




Participation in this programme is dependent on the student being up to

date with all curriculum requirements & children taking the day off after

snow squad due to being tired will not be able to participate in future .
