Snow School at Mount Washington

Welcome to the Snow School at Mount Washington Alpine Resort. Our snow school has seen many changes over the last few years with one thing in mind....YOU, our customer. Our programs are dynamic and fun, the way skiing and riding is supposed to be. Whether you are a first time skier or rider or someone looking to brush up on their skills, we have something for you. The best part is all of our programs offer small class sizes, as recommended by the Canadian Ski Council, and extend lift line priority to you which means more time skiing and riding and less in line.
