Ski & Snowboard Lessons Children's Group Lessons - Ages 3-6

Getting a good start in life is important. Here at Loon, our children’s group lessons provide the innovative and caring instruction that will help your kids excel on snow – and have lots of fun, too.

In addition to learning from our top-notch coaches, children will explore exciting Discovery Zones that depict stories about the history of logging in the Lincoln area, the surrounding White Mountain National Forest, and the wild creatures that live on Loon Mountain. 

Group lessons are designed for Levels 1-5, with children grouped by ability. Our coaches are trained in child-specific teaching techniques that use games and terrain features to develop their skills.

Please Note: The Children's Center will be open through March 30, 2014. Private lessons will continue to be available through April 16.
