Waiting lines for the activities are subject to close early.
Participants in the Learn to Ski, Sledding, Snowshoeing, Dodgeball, Flag Football, Curling, and Bowling activities must sign a waiver and provide photo identification before participating in these activities. The waivers will be provided at the event for participants to sign. Participants under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian present with photo identification to sign the waiver.
