2021 Learn to Ski & Ride Program

Learning and fun, it's what we do best!

We take great pride in holding the title: The premier teaching mountain in New Hampshire. We strive to provide our guests with only the highest quality of instruction with the very best skiing and riding conditions. Over 300 professional instructors allow us to gear every lesson toward the student's age and ability, while providing a fun-learning environment.

We base our instruction on the American Teaching System, a method used by the PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) and AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors), a proven method for developing and refining skills.

The health and safety of our guests, staff and community are a priority and we must all act responsibly to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Everyone staying healthy is our #1 priority!  Face coverings must be worn by all staff and guests when at Pats Peak, except when eating or drinking. Please read our Health & Safety tab below for more details on what we are doing to make your experience better.
