KIDS GROUP LESSONS
fun lessons on expansive learning terrain
PLEASE NOTE: We will have extended offerings for Children's group lessons both Saturday, March 23rd & Sunday, March 24th! Please call in advance to ensure availability, 518-236-4223, reservations are required.
Hunter Mountain's group lessons for children are led by our instructors who provide fun, engaging, and memorable experiences for your little ones! With programs designed around age and skiing ability, our group lessons are a fantastic way for your child to develop their skiing or riding.
Our children's programs feature a SunKid conveyor lift for the sole use of the Explorers program. The carpet is 120 feet long and take less than a minute to transport children from the bottom of the carpet to the top, minimizing waiting, conserving energy, and giving children more time learning on the snow.
Inside the Learning Center there are dedicated rental, lunch and break areas for Mountaineers and Explorers Programs. The exclusivity of these rooms streamlines the process for parents and children, making their experience as seamless as possible!
