Cancellation Policy

Lessons will be cancelled if weather conditions force a hill closure, or may be subject to rescheduling at the customer’s discretion if temperatures feel like -25 celsius and below. Follow us on Facebook, view our website homepage, or call the Snowschool for updates at 780-532-6637. Lessons will be rescheduled for the following week at the same time.

Nitehawk does require at least 48 hours notice for any non-weather cancellations. This is to allow us enough time to cancel your Instructor.

Should 48 hours notice not be given, 50% of the lesson cost will be retained to cover Administration and Instructor wage costs.


Group Lesson Programs that are cancelled due to a weather forced closure may be made-up during the second or third week of a similar later camp. Should there not be any further camps that season, a pro-rated refund (total price paid divided by total weeks of program multiplied by weeks remaining) will be provided by the Administration upon request from the Customer. Camps will only be extended due to weather cancellations.
