Plan your trip

Before your trip

On a day trip

  • Be at the bus at least 10 minutes early (more if you need to pay for parking). 
  • On Saturdays, Bus 1 tends to be the quiet bus. Bus 2 is typically the "party bus" and plays loud music. If in doubt, ask!
  • Store skis/boards in a bag, placed in the luggage bins. Take your boots inside (frozen boots are hard to ski or ride in!)
  •   Place boots on the floor at your feet, not in the overhead.  Falling boots hurt! Especially if they're yours.
  • You'll receive a chit for a lift ticket, if required. Don't lose it - you'll need to exchange it when we arrive.

On Arrival

  • Stay by the bus and get your lift ticket from your bus captain. Do this early - they want to hit the slopes too.
  • Take everything that you'll need for the day. The bus is not accessible during the day.
  • Your bus captain will announce the bus number is and departure time back to Toronto. Be back on board before then!
  • Remember your bus number! Unless you like random adventures, you'll need it to find the bus later and get home.
  • The chalet is closed this year. Lockers are unavailable.
  • Lessons begin around 10am (MSLM) or (Collingwood), based on when we arrive. Look for the instructors on the snow just outside the chalet.

Return home

    • The bus opens for loading 15 min before, and leaves on time. A taxi back home is expensive.
    • Luggage bins will be marked by destination. Place your equipment in the correct bin to make unloading easier.
    • At Mount St Louis, the bus will pick up in a different area to the side of the parking lot (see map) . Stay left when you exit the chalet, towards the maintenance area, to find the bus.
    • Keep the same seat. Ask before switching seats.
    • If you are not returning on the bus, let your bus captain know.
    • If you are switching buses, talk to both bus captains first.

    Lessons & Coaching

    NTSC has one of the largest and most highly qualified ski schools in Canada! Whether you're just starting out, are an expert, or somewhere in between, our CSIA/CASI certified instructors have the right lesson for you. Helmets are required to participate in lessons.

    Ski and snowboard lessons are offered on most day trips.  We want you to get the most out of your lesson, so we group students with similar ability, pace and improvement goals. What step are you? 

    Learn to Ski/Ride

    New to winter sports? "Snow" problem! Join the club and learn to ski/ride with us!

    We'll pair you with a certified instructor for a full day lesson for a fun, enjoyable and safe day on the slopes. Available on Saturdays and Sundays only for the first six weeks of lessons.


    Become an even better skier or rider! Lessons are offered for:


    Improve your technique, get more out of your equipment and conquer those harder runs with ease.


    You've made it this far. You tackle the moguls like they don't exist and steeps like it's flat ground.

    Now let's see what you can really do.


    If you are interested to experience what it is like to be an instructor or if would like to train for certification with the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI) - this is the program for you. As a snowboard student of advanced ability, you will shadow our NTSC instructors during lessons and get hands-on experience that will help you train for CASI 1 certification. NTSC has a number of successful graduates of this program who successfully passed the CASI 1 course, and are currently teaching with the club!

    First check out the CASI website for more information about CASI 1 instructor course requirements, course dates/locations, and the CASI 1 Course Guide and then contact the NTSC Snowboard School, or talk with one of our snowboard instructors for more details about this NTSC program.


    Skiing, snowboarding and other activities that take place at ski areas can involve the risk of injury or concussion - and we want to see you on a future trip! Learn your responsibilities, how you can stay safe and how to recognize a concussion.
