Is there a fee charged for lessons? There is no charge for students who are residents of the Thompson/Nicola Regional District. Lessons would be provided by CADS certified volunteer instructors with ASSP. Students from outside that geographic area will be directed to the Sun Peaks Resort Snowsports School for CADS lessons, for which there would be a fee.
