About the Ski & Snowboard Club

The Ski & Snowboard Club is a non-competitive activity whose goal is to introduce inexperienced skiers and/or snowboarders to the sport and to provide those more experienced the opportunity to improve their skills. This is not a ski team. The ski club offers a 4-trip combo package on selected Sundays. The trips in the package alternate between Loon Mountain and Waterville Valley Ski Resorts. Equipment rentals (including helmets) and lessons are available on all trips. Helmets are required of all participants. Open to all students.
