Holy Trinity Student's ski on Wednesday's at Gunstock Ski Resort

Over 40 years ago, Gunstock developed an Outreach Program to offer children opportunities to learn skiing, snowboarding, or cross country skiing at a discounted rate, while providing a safe and social learning environment.

  • Students receive a season pass
  • 4 weeks of 1 hour lessons
  • 4 weeks of complementary rentals
  • 1st session begins in January 

The First Timer level: is the easiest level to spot because these are the students that have not been on skis or a snowboard at a ski resort before. In the backyard does not count as having expe rience and means these students would still be placed in the First Timer category. First Timers will be introduced to the equipment, your responsibility code, learn the basic skills to perform movements needed. Students will learn how to load and unload the uphill surface lift (Magic Carpet) at our beginner area. Students will also learn to place feet in skis and ratchet on a snowboard.

Entry Level Ski: Entry Level students are just starting to develop the skills to turn. They are generally skiing on green terrain or the Magic Carpet or the Penny lift. These students put on and take off their own skis and successfully walk up hill using either side stepping or herringbone. They can also demonstrate the skills required to get on and off the lift, including the ability to stop by turning or with a wedge.

Intermediate Ski: Students at the intermediate level are skiing on green and blue terrain, using wedge turns. They may be wedge turns moving toward parallel turns, but not fully confident in their skills. Students are progressing toward matching their skis. Turns show speed control the ability to stop, and turns of varying size and rhythm.

Advanced Ski: Advanced level students are making strong turns. trying black diamond trails and skiing aggressively. These skiers can effectively control their speed by the shape of their turns. This is the highest level lesson we offer and students should be comfortable skiing the whole mountain.
