If your child comes to the program and is not able to meet the skiing or riding ability level described, the option will be given to move to the Adventurers Program to keep building their skill level (as long as they meet the ability level for that program) or to take a few Mountain Cats lessons (at an extra charge) to hold their space to gain the necessary skills to move back into the group. If they do not gain the skills necessary to meet the ability level of the group, the cost of only the program will be used to book lessons through Mountain Cats for the child.
