Frequently Asked Questions

Can I try out the program for just one/some of the weeks?


Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the program on a week-by-week basis. Currently the program is offered as either a 4 week or 7 week program only.




What happens if I miss a week?


All fees paid are nonrefundable. In the event that a ski lesson is missed, it cannot be made up. You can still access the online content to stay up to date with the Jewish learning.




What's included with tuition? What are the additional costs of the program?


The Program Tuition includes transportation to and from Keystone. Students will receive a kosher bagged lunch on the bus each morning with their name on it to give to their ski teachers. The tuition also covers all interactive Jewish educational instruction that will be installed on their personal devices. Additional costs include: The lessons (4 week- $459, 7 week- $824) Click here for more information and to purchase lessons (In the fall.)

Equipment can be rented for an entire season from various front range locations. We cannot faciliate rentals at the resort. IPad - All students enrolled in the program are required to have an iPad for the Jewish instruction.




This sounds great! Where do I start?


First enroll in Shalom Hebrew School (not required) and/or pay the Shalom Shredders Program tuition. After enrollment you will receive a welcome packet with waivers and more information about how to register with Keystone for the lessons. If you are not ready to enroll yet, but are interested in participating please contact Rabbi Lehrfield at mlehrfield@joidenver.com




Is this a replacement to Hebrew School?


The Shredders Program is a supplement to a Hebrew School education. To get the most out of this program we recommend participating in the Shalom Hebrew School. The curriculum for the Shredders Program is designed for Shalom School students to keep up with their classes at Shalom School.




Can I join my children?


Parents are welcome and encouraged to join as a chaperone (space allowing). Please contact Rabbi Lehrfield for more details at mlehrfield@joidenver.com




Where is the pickup/dropoff?


The pickup/droppoff location is: 9550 E. Belleview Ave. Greenwood Village CO 80111. Children are expected to be at the pickup location each morning at 5:45am and they are expected back at about 5:00pm. Due to traffic it is difficult to predict exactly when we will arrive back.




Why is this better than just sending my children to regular ski school?


In addition to the Jewish education component, this multi-week program allows our youngest skiers to build fundamental skills in a fun, safe and support environment that will feel like camp. By building a relationship with the same coach week after week as well as new friends, they'll not only grow skills, but a love of skiing!




My child has never skied before is that going to be a problem?


Nope! We can accommodate skiers of all levels. Groups are divided by age and ability.




Is it ok if I bring my child up to Keystone myself?


Absolutely, but please notify Rabbi Lehrfield at info@joidenver.com that your child will not be taking the normal bus/van. Even if they do not ride with the group we cannot offer discounts or different pricing. Children should be dropped off at the Mountain House Children's Ski School Location




How will the children be transported to and from Keystone?


If we have enough students registered for each program we will be renting a 54 seat coach bus for transportation. If we have less than 30 total students they will be driven in private mini-vans.




I have a question that's not listed!
