How It Works

Blizzard is a traveling ski and snowboard school for youth in Kindergarten through 12th grades. Since 1958, we’ve been teaching safety, fun and learning on the slopes. We don’t just teach skiing and snowboarding; we create skiers and boarders who enjoy an active snowsports lifestyle with their entire family.

Blizzard visits different snowsports areas each weekend from Thanksgiving through March, offering a wide range of age-appropriate programs. Choose all-day supervision or plenty of time to free-ski or -ride with friends. Either way, members always progress at their own pace through our Color Level system of skill-based instruction. When you have mastered a new skill, you pass to the next color (skill) level and meet new challenges!

After you register for a program, you will be contacted each week to make a reservation for the upcoming trip (usually due by Thursdays at 8:00pm).  If you attend the trip, you pay a weekly trip fee to cover your round-trip bus transportation and lift ticket. If you do not attend, you don’t pay!

Blizzard provides members with the opportunity to learn to ski and snowboard safely with proficiency and confidence. Members get to know other skiers and snowboarders their own age, form lasting friendships, and develop personal responsibility. Blizzard requires good conduct from its members. It’s a great way to spend your winter!
