Children are broken into groups of similar ages and abilities and will learn and enhance age and ability-appropriate skills; ranging from learning to build confidence, balance, and coordination on and off the snow along with learning new skills including stopping, turning, using lifts, and practicing previous skills and developing new ones as they progress. Groups in these programs will have a maximum of 6 children.

Testimonials

"We've been going to Ski Ward for 3 years now for our kids ski lessons and they've made great strides! The kids have fun and become better skiers due to the instructors attention and know how. They are now skiing from the peaks of some of the biggest mountains in the east!"
"Thank you, @SkiWardMA ! We had a blast on your old school T-bar. I haven't done that since 1987 at Berkshire Snow Basin. And the trails were in great shape. Good times! #AdventureMen"
"Our teachers were great. Patient and kind and they knew how to teach the skills for beginner snowboarders. Definitely a great place to learn with these young teachers"
"I’ve been going here since I was a kid, and now I have the opportunity to bring my daughter here to enjoy the slopes as well!"

Multi-Week Lesson FAQs

People of the same “reservation group” may ride the lift together so lessons can ride with their instructor or students in their lesson. Otherwise people can ride two singles on the opposite sides of the chair lift. 

4-7 year olds will not be riding the chairlift in bubble lessons. We cannot put those young ages on a chair lift without an instructor and we can’t have a floater or rider instructor ride with several different groups while keeping up with the COVID-19 regulations. Out of an abundance of precaution we are going to teach the 4 to 7 year olds in bubble lessons to use the T-bar as an alternate. The T-bar does go all the way to the top and is actually our most advanced lift and a safer alternative for this season. If you would like your child (aged 4 to 7) to use the chair lift then please sign them up for a private lesson. Ages 8-14 will be using the chairlift if their skill level allows for it: Using the lifts is based on the child’s skill levels and the entire group’s ability. Using the chairlift may on occasion cause a class to have to wait until the conditions for riding the chairs has been met for everyone in the class.

Children are separated by both age and ability so instructors can cater teaching styles to their unique needs.

The 4-7 year old programs will have 4 or 5 children per instructor. Ages 8-14 programs will have 5 or 6 children per instructor.

We do not offer makeup classes unless you meet our sick policy guidelines. Refunds will not be given for missed classes.

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms please notify us to cancel or reschedule your lesson. We will waive the cancellation policy if you provide a doctors note. After cancellation of a lesson due to illness or COVID-19 exposure you must provide a doctors note stating you are well enough to return to normal activities and have met state quarantine guidelines. Please email us to reschedule or provide doctors notes at snowschool@skiward.com with the name of the student as the subject line. People who qualify will be given a gift card for the amount they paid for the missed program due to illness.
