After School Programs


West Mountain has been making kids happy while teaching them to learn to ski and snowboard with their school friends since 1961. Our After School Programs begin Jan. 3 and run for 6 weeks (not including holiday break weeks), and all participating schools come one day a week on their designated day of the week. 21-22 Program Registration is now open here.

21-22 Program Flyer Here

Update: If your school is unable to offer your school’s After School program in 21-22 due to COVID, do not worry, the programs will still be offered to all participating schools. Transportation and supervision would be the responsibility of the parent and/or caregiver in this situation.

If your school is not a member of our After School Program and you are interested in learning more, please contact or call 518-636-3699 ext. 316. We offer a 6-Week lift only program with  lesson, rental, and meal plan add-on options at affordable rates (see descriptions below). After School Program members also receive additional perks including discounted skiing (for additional days of skiing outside of program), tubing and summer tickets, plus discounts on rentals and merchandise when they show their After School Program card.

Please Read over our Mountain Safety Guidelines for Winter Here before your child or children begin their program.

Lift Only: Includes a program pass that is valid from 3-9pm on your school’s After School program day for six weeks.

Lesson Add On: We offer an hour and a half lesson during the program with our amazing staff of instructors. We encourage all students to register for lessons. Learning how to ski and snowboard properly will allow your student to be safe and confident skiers and riders.

We offer daily and season-long rentals for skiing and snowboarding. Seasonal packages include brand new Rossignol skis or snowboard, boots and bindings for $149 (all ages). They are limited in quantity and available on a first come, first service basis. Click here for more information. Please note: Only skis and snowboards rented through West Mountain can be serviced by a West Mountain tech.
