A snowsports education – and a great value

  • Parents: There’s no better way for kids to learn skiing and riding than to make it a natural extension of their education. Wachusett’s Student Ski & Snowboard program does just that.
  • Discounts: Save $5 on a COW Card good for food, retail and more. 
  • Badge or Season Pass Insurance: Get your card replaced if unable to participate due to unexpected circumstance.

Lessons for all levels

  • Beginners and novices (Levels 1-4): Lessons are required. See Class Level description when ordering the lesson online. Beginners are not allowed to join the program after the first session.
  • Intermediate to advanced: Lessons are also available and recommended.


  • Rent: Packages (skis/poles/boots or snowboard/boots and helmets) are available for your program – or the full season. Or, BYO: Be sure to mark your gear with NAME, SCHOOL, and PHONE NUMBER.
