Since Tom Jacobs founded the first Ski School at West Mountain in 1961, we have hosted over 30,000 students!
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 will enjoy for the rest of their lives, but we believe our staff’s commitment to your students to teach them in a fun, friendly environment.
