Parents, children, beginners, racers, freestylers, cruisers and everyone in between can enjoy the benefits and fun of a season-long program at resorts throughout New England.
Perhaps you’ve just rented a home in ski country for the winter, or maybe you live near a local hill or large resort, or you just want an incentive to get your family out on the slopes more often. One answer is to join a seasonal program at your favorite, or most convenient, mountain.
Most areas have season-long programs for both children and adults. These can range from a progressive series of lessons starting with beginners, to lessons for more accomplished skiers and riders just wishing to hone their skills, to racing programs for youngsters or teens just starting out or for more advanced competitors. Other options include cruising and exploring the mountain with an instructor and joining a group just for skiing companionship. These programs are staffed by knowledgeable instructors who offer valuable skiing and riding tips as well as insights into the area’s terrain, history and lore. The common thread running through all of these programs is improvement, companionship, education and just plain fun. Here are just a few examples of what’s offered around New England.
In New Hampshire, Cannon Mountain offers an extensive junior development program for kids ages 3 to 15 designed to teach new skills and enhance the proficiency of those who are already confident skiers or riders. Participants will maximize their recreational experience while being supervised by instructors dedicated to improving the skills of their students. All this is done in a safe and fun learning environment with an opportunity for companionship and social interaction with peers.
