Just For Kids

We start them young at Mount Southington.  Our children’s lessons and programs are designed for the young skier or rider, ages 4 to 15.  The Glacier Learning Area, home of our Penguins, Snow Foxes and Polar Bears located next to the Rental Shop and the Alpine Eatery, is very convenient for moms, pops and kids, and features the Magic Carpet Lift and the Handle Tow.

Our instructors are specially trained to work with young learners.  Each lesson centers on exercises and games that teach skills while providing fun for the youngsters.  At the end of the lesson, parents are given a Progress Card detailing accomplishments and a program to follow to help their children continue to improve.

Get your kids off the couch and onto the slopes.  Get them to Mount Southington for skiing fun out in the winter sun.

Weekend & Holiday Lessons

Younger students from ages 4 to 9 have a dedicated section of our mountain called “The Glacier” which is located just outside our Alpine Eatery and is home to our popular Penguins, Snow Foxes and Polar Bears lessons which are held each weekend and most holiday periods beginning December 26th. Children learn the fundamentals of skiing while also having fun with other kids their age and our friendly and amusing Ski School Staff. The Glacier also has a carpet lift and a handle tow. These lessons are available on a first come first served basis. Sorry, reservations cannot be taken. Please make sure that you arrive here at least one hour before the lesson starts so that you'll have adequate time to buy tickets and fit any rentals needed. These Children's Lessons include a Lift Ticket good until 5 pm.

WildThings is a multi-week program (4 or 8 weeks) for children ages 6 to 12 who can already move around the mountain. Our emphasis is on having fun while improving each child’s skiing or boarding skills. WildThings offers your child a chance to ski or board with the same instructor and group for all four or eight sessions, and enables the instructor and child to establish a “skiing/boarding partnership” where the instructor can tailor the weekly lessons to the group’s specific needs. WildThings is offered from 10am–3pm on consecutive Saturdays or Sundays in January and February.

WildTeens is NEW and is designed for our older skiers and snowboarders ages 13 to 15 that are looking for weekly instruction with older kids in their age group that share their passion for skiing and riding.

These programs include a one hour supervised box lunch and an All Mountain lift ticket good until 5pm.
