Children's Ski & Snowboard School

Geared toward skiers and riders of all ability levels ages 4-12, the Homewood Ski & Snowboard School focuses on building and solidifying technique in a positive learning environment. After a day on the slopes with our professional instructors, your child will want to come back to Homewood again and again!

About the Children's Ski & Snowboard programs
The Homewood Children's Ski & Snowboard School programs are organized daily by ability level. Upon arrival, you will be asked about your child's previous skiing or riding experience and then we will place your child in a group with others of the same level. This ensures the best learning environment for our kids!
This is an educational ski and snowboard program, not a day care, and can be physically demanding. Parents are required to remain on premises in the event that a child becomes ill or refuses to participate.
Children's lessons are offered as half-day or full-day programs. Our full-day program is highly recommended as it creates the best learning environment. Kid-friendly lunch is included in full-day programs. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated upon arrival. Please make us aware of any food allergies.
All lessons include the flaik GPS, a tracking device that monitors your child's location on the mountain during the lesson and offers a web code to view the day's stats from home! This is a great way for your child to share their experience with you - while keeping them safe!
Additionally, 4–6 year old children in group lessons will be outfitted with Magnestick chair lift safety technology.
