"Our Goal is to be the Best Ski and Ride School Anywhere"

Listed in the Boston Globe in 2013 as #2 of the top Ten Great Places to Learn to Ski in New England

Fastest growing Ski and Ride school in North America

Smallest class sizes anywhere. In fact we offer the lowest student to instructor ratio in North America

  • We have taken the traditional “factory mentality” out of ski and snowboard instruction
  • One-on-One instruction for all 3 to 6 year olds, at regular group rates, until they can ski or snowboard on their own
  • 4 miles of extraordinary beginner terrain separated from the rest of the mountain, serviced by a ½ mile long chairlift
  • It is common, for even a four or five year old, to ski 1 or even 2 miles or more in their very first lesson!
  • Honest, student centered philosophy
  • Maximum class size of only 2 students for all 3&4 year olds after they can ski or snowboard on their own
  • Maximum class size of only 3 students for all 5&6 year olds after they can ski or snowboard on their own
  • Maximum class size of only 5 guests in any lesson, any age, any ability!

"These are the right things to do."  Mark Robie, Director

Because of our exceptionally small class sizes, we strongly encourage you to make advance reservations. Call 1-866-918-2225 ext. 139

FAMILY LESSONS

We started offering these specialty lessons last year and they were a huge success with our guests

We love parents who want to be able to teach their own children to ski and we love families who want to come and try to learn to ski or snowboard right along side their children. We created these two new programs just for you! Once again Saddleback is setting a new standard for the industry.

Ski with Me - Ride With Me
For parents with children ages 6 and younger

This is for every parent who wants to know how best to help their young child ski or snowboard better while keeping the experience fun. One of our experienced instructors will take you and your child out on the slopes and they will share tips, techniques, philosophy, and skill development activities that are fun. When you know what to do, you will be more confident and relaxed and so will they. This program is suitable for children 6 and under. Parents should be confident on green terrain. Both parents can come along and make it a family experience.

2 Hour Lesson: 10am-12pm or 1-3pm, one parent & one child $99
Extra Parent $40

Family Ski or Snowboard Lessons

This is another program we are proud to be offering families who want to go on vacation and have everyone learn a new sport together. This is available for up to 5 family members, ages 7 and up. Two instructors will join your family for 2 hours or all day (4 hours) as everyone gets to laugh and support each other as you all share the great experience of learning to ski or snowboard together.

2 Hour Lesson for up to 5 family members $249
4 Hour Lesson for up to 5 family members $449
