Ski & Snowboard For all Ages

Chicopee's Snow School Programs are all about developing your skiing and snowboarding skills through unique, fun-filled experiences! Experiencing the feeling of freedom and promoting an outdoor lifestyle is key in our lesson programs. Whether this is your first time on snow or you're looking to improve your skills, the adventure will captivate you for life. Our trained and certified snow school instructors use a variety of teaching tactics to promote skill acquisition while nurturing a lifelong passion for snow sports. Instructors will also promote the use of sport specific language, basic equipment requirements and needs, as well as the importance of equipment maintenance. Students will work through our 7-stage Development Program and receive a progress report at the conclusion of the lessons. Program groups are divided by age and ability. Helmets are mandatory for all lesson participants.
