Welcome to West Mountain’s After School/Weekend Group/Ski Club Programs!

Since 1961, West Mountain has hosted over 30,000 students in its After School/Weekend Group/Ski Club Programs.

With a ski area in our own back yard, learning how to ski/snowboard has simply become part of growing up in the southern Adirondacks.  

Participating in the West Mountain Snow Sports Programs a great way to stay active, build friendships and make memories that will last a lifetime.  Not only do we believe in the health benefits of a sport you and your child or children will enjoy for the rest of their lives, but we believe our staff’s commitment to your children and students to teach them in a fun, friendly environment.

We have over 50 schools/groups that participate in our After School Group Programs. If you are not part of our After-School program and wish to be an organizer for your school, please contact west@westmtn.net
