Parents must discuss their children's needs with Base Camp Program Director Trish Shepard (970) 205-5160 prior to enrolling.

Fee Payment - Please Read!

Unfortunately, due to past payment issues, we have to become stricter about penalties for late payment  including the threat of having to prevent your childs participation. This is the last thing we want to do! But we cannot afford to have folks take advantage of our willingness extend credit. Outstanding balances from prior seasons must be paid in full before the athlete in question or his or her siblings will be allowed to enroll for the 2012-2013 season.

Payment Plans
If you are not paying the program balance in full at the time of registration, a payment plan with postdated checks OR a credit/debit card MUST be set-up before the first day of training in order for your child to participate. A $25 processing fee will be applied to all payment plans of up to $1,000; a $50 processing fee will be applied to all plans of $1,000 or more.

Athlete Travel Accounts
If your child plans on traveling with AVSC, they MUST have a signed athlete account with a credit/debit card on file. We cannot allow any exceptions to this. You will have 30 days to pay travel charges. If we do not receive payment within 30 days, the card will automatically be charged.

Declined Charges
If a credit card charge is declined on a payment plan installment or an athlete travel account, a $25 fee will be added to the amount due and your childs participation will be suspended until payment is made.

Mid-Season Enrollment for Team Programs
Athletes will be allowed to enroll in Team programs after the program start date with the permission of the Program Director. Program Fees will be discounted based on when you enrolled:

  • Prior to January 1 - Full Price

  • Between January 1 and Feb 1 - 25% discount

  • After Feb 1 - 50% discount


Refund Policy
Refunds are allowed before the program start date. A withdrawal fee will be charged. Once a program begins, refunds are only available for documented medical reasons or family re-location. Refunds are determined by the schedule below. Any season pass discounted through enrollment in AVSC will be voided upon withdrawal.

Base Camp Programs:

  • Prior to program starting date - 100% (less $50 withdrawal fee)

  • Between January 1 and Feb 1 - 25%

  • After Feb 1 - No refund

Team Programs:

  • Prior to program starting date - 100% (less $100 withdrawal fee)

Participation

The Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club reserves the right to expel children from our programs who cause disruptions and create an atmosphere that is not conducive to learning and team-building. There will be no refund in such instances and any season pass discounted through enrollment in AVSC will be voided.

Parent Work Deposit

Parent Work Deposits are part of all Devo and Team program prices and must be paid up front. Parents who volunteer with AVSC can recoup these deposits at a rate of $15/hour. All hours must be tracked by the parent volunteer and turned in to Beth Hansen by April 30, 2013. Tracking forms are available at the Clubhouse. Reimbursement checks are cut in June. If possible, we encourage families to volunteer but donate work deposits back to AVSC. Download the parent work deposit form as a PDF file by clicking here.


Base Camp Equipment Programs

Local businesses including Gorsuch Sports (925-3203), Aspen Sports (925-6331), and Gene Taylor Sports (923-4336) all offer equipment programs beginning in early November on a first-come, first- serve basis. Prices vary with age and type of equipment. These programs are very popular and tend to sell out quickly. Call any of these shops for more specific information. Many other local shops also work with AVSC participants, so be sure to ask regarding their policies. To download a complete list of equipment options (PDF) from 2010/2011 click here! An updated list of equipment options for the 2011/2012 season will be coming this fall.

Gorsuch Sports and D&E/Four Mountain Sports are generously offering to subsidize equipment for some scholarship recipients. Please contact Trish Shepard at 205-5160 if you think you may qualify.

Free Bus Transportation

Any child who is registered for SnoWarriors is eligible for free bus transportation from down-valley to Snowmass or Buttermilk. Buses run every day of the SnoWarrior program and pick-up at the Career Center in Glenwood Springs, the Crystal River Elementary School (Carbondale), El Jebowl, and the Basalt Middle School. To sign up for bus service download the form as a PDF file here or call Trish Shepard at 205-5160. Participants must register for bus service before December 3. A chaperone will be assigned to your child for the season and will contact you with details before the program starts.
