Mount Peter 22-23 Refund Policy: There are no refunds on the program. During these uncertain times please keep in mind that any purchase made is a risk. Mount Peter's programs are non-refundable and will not be extended even if your child misses time due to illness. Before purchasing this program, please consider the risks involved. Upon payment you agree to the terms above.

Chaperone Information

  • It is vital for the transportation portion of the program that we have an adequate number of volunteer chaperones who can commit to all 4 weeks of the program. If this requirement is not met, transportation will be canceled and participants will be required to provide their own transportation.
  • Chaperones ski and ride free of charge. A separate Mt. Peter registration link will be provided to chaperones. Children of chaperones ride free, but will need to register for the skiing portion of the program and pay Mt. Peter for any fees incurred.
  • Chaperones do not need to ski. We always need people to supervise the lodge and the primary duty of chaperones (other than ensuring everyone's safety and enjoyment) is to assist our program supervisor with bus organization and general administration.
  • If you wish to chaperone, please return the chaperone form included in the bus registration packet below.

Registration Instructions (READ CAREFULLY)

  • Registration for the Mt. Peter portion of the program and the transportation portion of the program are separate. Registering for one DOES NOT register you for the other. You are not required to use the bus transportation provided. If you do not register for the buses, it will be assumed that you are providing your own transportation or carpooling.
  • You will pay Mt. Peter directly for any fees incurred for the skiing portion of the program and register online at the link provided.
  • For transportation, you will need to submit paper forms to the Department of Recreation at 50 Kings Road and include a check for $175 made payable to "Borough of Madison".
