Snow School

Snow School at Mount Washington

Adventure at any Age

Remember when you first learned to ride a bike? How it was a little scary, but really exciting? It required you to step out of your comfort zone to overcome an up-until-then lifelong challenge. Remember how once you were able to ride it; there was the feeling of balance and speed, the wind on your face, the freedom, and most importantly the joy? Remember going out for fun bike rides with your family and your friends? This is what skiing and snowboarding is like, but better. It’s an adventure! Once you get to the slopes, you’re in an other worldly place. A place covered in slippery white stuff where people of all ages and abilities can come to slide on it. Whether you’re alone, a couple on a date, with a group of friends, or a family, there’s something fun for everyone (because after all, it all boils down to fun.) If you’ve never tried it before, there are beginner lessons and rental packages available to make it super easy to get started. Once you get the hang of it – the “Aha!” moment – there’s the same feeling of accomplishment you felt so many years ago pedalling a bike for the first time.

It’s LOVE. For some people, skiing/snowboarding becomes one of those things that can’t be beat. The feeling of being in the mountains every winter feeds their souls. From school kids, to twenty year-old lift operators, to doctors and lawyers, to eighty-something seniors, there’s just something about sliding on snow that makes them ridiculously happy.

And then there’s the powder… Oh man, nothing on a bicycle can top the feeling of floating in knee deep fresh pow-pow. Get up here! It could be the passion that you’ve yet to discover.

- Mike Manara, Snow School Director

Burton at Mount Washington


The name Jake Burton goes back to the beginnings of snowboard design. Burton is the grand daddy of all snowboard companies. We carry a large line of EST bindings which compliments the Burton Channel System that is unique to their snowboards. Because of the popularity of the Burton binding, we carry the regular four hole plate so Burton bindings fit onto other makes of boards. A couple of the hot selling boots this year are the mens Driver X and the ladies Emerald. The Burton Custom has a long history and has been the mens flagship board while the Feelgood is one awsome shredder ladies board. Before purchasing your new snowboard package you have the opportunity to demo the Burton board, binding or boot of your choice.

Rossignol at Mount Washington


The French company Rossignol is one of the oldest and largest ski companies in the world. Rossignol is constantly striving for new innovative designs to allow the skier performance with less effort. The legendary S7 is known throughout the skiing community as the big mountain powder ski that has set the bar at heli-skiing resorts worldwide. The Ladies S3 complements this and is our biggest selling ladies powder ski. Rossignol uses the “Autoturn” technology in their beginner to advanced carving skis that allows the skier to initiate their turns with less effort and more control. This technology has helped encourage a faster learning curve for our beginner and intermediate customers. Come up and test drive some of our shops demo skis to see what Rossignol has to offer before you purchase a ski.
