Section 8 ski and snowboard training programs are open to participants turning 18 prior to the start date of their course. Please be aware that the age of majority in the Province of British Columbia is 19. The law does not permit minors to enter certain establishments or to buy alcoholic beverages. This does not affect course curriculum in any way but means that 18 years olds may be restricted to certain areas of restaurants or pubs and may be limited in some of the social activities that take place outside of program time. All participants of Section 8 programs are expected to abide by the laws of Canada and British Columbia. By signing below I understand that it is the responsibility of the liquor establishments and the local police authorities to enforce these laws and not those of Section 8 Snowsport Institute.
