Ski School and Kids Programs
Don’t let fear keep you from fun. Taking your first runs on the mountain may seem like a daunting endeavor. Give us the opportunity to show you just how easy and enjoyable it can be with a lesson package perfectly suited for you. Our Snowsports school has youth packages, adult packages, camps, and clinics geared toward turning anyone into snow lover for life!
Get your kids out of the house! Allow us to show your kids that playing in the snow is better than being trapped inside. We’ve got lessons and all-inclusive packages geared toward children ages 4 to 12 of any ability. If they are looking for something to do during school breaks, our Glacier Riders Camps are a perfect fit! We also offer two weekly programs, Trail Blazers and Mountain Monsters, both aimed at furthering their passion for the great outdoors.
It’s never too late to learn and you’re never too good for a lesson! For adult and teen beginners, our all-inclusive lesson packages are perfect for getting you comfortable with the mountain. We offer a First Turns package for those who’ve never tried the sport and a Second Turns package suited for those returning after a prolonged absence. Swain Snowsports School also offers both group and private lessons for every ability to help you hone your skills.
Learn to ski or snowboard right in Monroe County! Powder Mills and Northampton Parks provide an inviting, accessible atmosphere that is comfortable for any beginner. Each location has rental equipment and experienced ski and snowboard instructors on-hand, ready to teach you the fundamental skills to enjoy a lifetime of skiing or snowboarding close to home in the Greater Rochester area!
