Winter program

The Dover School 2016 winter sports program at Mount Snow begins Thursday January 7, 2016 for 8 weeks. Please make sure to send your child(ren) with a coat, snow pants, gloves/mittens, neck warmers & a  helmet. If you need a helmet, please contact the school.

Dover School will bus skiers/snowboarders to Mount Snow Discovery Center at 11:45am after lunch. Skis and snowboards are not allowed on the bus. Equipment may be left at the front of the school in the morning. One of the chaperones will take it to the mountain ahead of time. Students should bring their winter clothing & ski or snowboard boots with them on the bus. A list of necessary items was included on the Mount Snow Program Check List page you received when you signed up.

Parent volunteers meet students each week to assist them with getting their gear on & picking up rental equipment, if needed. Students then head out to the Discovery Center to meet their instructors for their weekly clinic from 12.30-2:00.

The 5 and 6 year old will after their clinic at 2pm need to be picked up and signed out at the Discovery Center.

After the clinic, all  the students 7 year old and up and volunteers meet at the Main Base Lodge for hot chocolate & snacks, and then gather in groups led by the parent volunteers for an afternoon of free ski.

Students should be picked up at Mount Snow at 3:45pm. There is no bus service home. Ski lifts close at 4:00pm. It is required that all students check in with parent volunteers prior to the lessons, then at the Main Base Lodge for chaperoned skiing, and at the end of the day.

All students must have their pass from Mount Snow in order to participate.
