Ski and Snowboard School Information

We're just as excited as you are to kick off the winter season. Check back soon for anticipated opening information.

What to Bring

Equipment: skis or snowboard, boots, poles (please be aware that ski poles are not necessary for kids' beginner lessons and instructors may ask that you not bring them). If you are renting equipment for Cub Camp, Riglet, Snow Camp, or Learn to Ski/Ride, your instructors will assist you with getting it AFTER drop-off. If you are renting equipment for Mountain Camp or Mountain Riders, please allow time to get your rental equipment BEFORE you meet for your lesson. 

Wear: waterproof jacket, snow pants, mittens, helmet, goggles, non-cotton ski socks, neckwarmer/face mask if cold.

Please label all equipment and clothing with kids' names to prevent lost items.

If your child has any allergies or food restrictions, please send lunch with them.

Cub Campers will need different items throughout the day. Please visit the Cub Camp Helpful Information page for a full list. 

What to Expect

Kids Programs

Our Ski and Snowboard School lessons are on-snow programs. Make sure your child wants to be here before you sign them up. 

Prepare your child for the day by explaining why they are here and assure them that you will return at the end of their lesson. Also make sure they are well rested and have a good breakfast; skiing and riding require energy. 

Students are responsible for their own equipment

If you would like to observe, please do so from a distance so as not to distract the lesson. 

Please bring to our attention any special needs your child has such as allergies, medical instructions, etc. The more their instructor knows, the better. 

Only beginner lessons practice at the Launch Pad area. More advanced lessons use the entire mountain. 

Lessons are held regardless of weather, so please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. 

Snack and/or lunch are provided for the day depending on the product you purchase. Some foods served for lunch may include hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads, pizza, chicken nuggets, or pasta. Snacks may include yogurt, pretzels, baked goods, goldfish, graham crackers, juice, milk, soda, or hot chocolate. 

Students learn more than just skiing and riding skills. Our instructors teach "The Responsibility Code," Go With the Flow, the mountain environment, and making new friends. We want children to enjoy themselves while learning, so lessons are more like going to camp, not school. 

Adult Programs

Lessons are held regardless of weather, so please dress appropriately. 

You will be responsible for your own equipment.

Only beginner lessons practice at the Launch Pad area. More advanced lessons use the entire mountain. 

You will learn more than just skiing and riding skills. Our instructors teach "The Responsibility Code," Go With the Flow, and the mountain environment. We want you to enjoy learning to ski or ride.


You will be required to fill out a registration form with emergency and medical information. If your child is in Cub Camp, please fill out the Cub Camp registration form. This will be kept on file for the season. Save time at drop off by filling it out ahead of time! 

Allow extra time to complete forms, pick up lift and lesson tickets, try on rentals and get your child settled. Busy weekends and holidays can be hectic. Avoid lines by arriving early! Beat the Saturday rush at Midnight Express at The Cupola on Route 100 Friday nights beginning January - March. Pick up tickets, rentals, and lesson information and then walk right to lesson drop-off Saturday morning.  

Registration for Riglet, Snow Camp, Mountain Camp, and Mountain Riders is located in the lower level of the Discovery Center.

Registration for Learn to Ski/Ride and Adult Group Lessons is located on the first floor of the Discovery Center.

Registration for Private Lessons is located at the Cape House.
