Sorry, Pats Peak has a NO REFUND, no exchange policy on programs, rentals or perks. Pats Peak will not refund the cost of the program to students who decide to participate in other activities (such as basketball or cheerleading) after enrolling in the
program. If the parent/student is unsure if they are going to make a winter club/sports team or not, we will accept applications for the program after the deadline date for an additional fee of $25.00. If there is a question as to whether a student needs rentals or not, we suggest rentals be added at later date for the original cost of the rental.
The only exception to this policy may be if a student has a qualifying medical issue that keeps the student from participating
in the program for the rest of the season (short term illness such as a cold does not qualify). A pro-rated refund may, at Pats Peak discretion, be issued in the form of a gift card that can be used only for services or goods at Pats Peak. A signed doctors note (indicating date of incident) and program tag must accompany the medical refund request within 10 days of incident. There is a $10.00 processing fee on all medical refunds. These exceptions can take 2-4 weeks for processing.

A chaperone is an essential part of the Pats Peak Learn to Ski & Ride Program. A chaperone does not need to be a skier or
rider to participate; however, they must be at least 21 years old. Chaperones will be responsible to sign-in each night with
the Bow Parks & Recreation Program Coordinator. Chaperones with a valid chaperone tag can receive rental equipment at
no charge. Chaperones that assist on the hill will be issued a chaperone tag. The tag is their valid lift ticket. Chaperone tags
are only valid the days our program runs. If interested in chaperoning please call the Bow Recreation Office at 603-228-2222.
Anne-Marie Guertin, Bow Recreation’s Program Coordinator, will be present at Pats Peak from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Chaperones
will also be at Pats Peak. Look for the Bow Recreation table in the main lodge if you need assistance.
