How it works

  • Once we've processed your child's application, you'll be sent a laminated lesson tag with lesson time and instructor # printed on the back.   
  • Starting the first week of January, check here or sign up for REMIND for updates about snow conditions. As soon as we have enough snow to open and operate safely, we'll start our lessons.
  • Lesson Day: Bring the lesson tag and the skier/snowboarder to the hill approximately 15 minutes prior to their lesson time to get dressed and geared up.
  • At the appropriate time, take your child outside to their assigned number posted at the base of the Hill. Their instructor will meet you there!
  • Lessons are 1-1/2 hours long with a short break in our warming hut, "The Cocoa Shack", midway through the lesson.

Cancelled Lessons

If the lack of snow doesn't allow us to open, we cancel lessons for that day, and that lesson will carry over to the following week. We will continue to operate as the snow allows until we've held all six lessons. If are unable to complete all of the lessons, we offer a number of reimbursement choices from which to choose. We do not offer individualized make-up lessons for students who miss lessons due to personal reasons. 

*If lessons do not start until later in the season, we reserve the right to hold lessons on both Saturdays and Sundays. 


Discounts at Song and Labrador Mountains

We are teaming up with the fine people at Song and Labrador Mountain to offer all students enrolled in our ski school this year and CSA season ticket holders  discounts on Lift Passes and Ski and Snowboard Rentals at the Song and Labrador Mountain Ski Areas in Tully and Truxton, New York.  Visit our facility for full details.


Ski Equipment

Ski/Snowboard students MUST have their own equipment prior to their first lesson.

For those who do not have ski equipment, the “Used Ski Keller” Ski Shop, on the premises, offers used ski equipment at reasonable prices. Experienced personnel can offer guidance, answer questions, and recommend the best ski equipment to meet the individual skier’s needs.

See our Home page for updated hours of operation and information concerning donations and consignment.
