Ski & Snowboard Program at Nashoba Valley
Nashoba Valley Ski & Snowboard Program
The Learn to Ski Program provides ski or snowboard lessons, lift tickets and transportation to the Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford, MA. Participants should be independent, able to keep track of their possessions, and keep to a schedule.
Dates: Four sessions, January 10 – January 31
Time: 2:00pm – 6:30pm (times are approximate). Lessons are scheduled for 4:15pm.
Fee: $490 per participant. Each week participants will have time for free ski before lessons begin.
Please note we acknowledge the large fee increase and it is due to transportation cost and increased fees by the mountain. This occurred after last year’s fees were set. Last year Arlington Recreation ran the program at a deficit but is unable to absorb the expense this season.
Equipment Rental: There will be a mandatory fitting on Monday, December 4th at 6pm in the lobby of the Ed Burns Arena. Rentals are estimated to be $160 for the season, checks payable the night of the fitting directly to Nashoba Valley (additional to registration fee). If you plan on renting through Nashoba and do not make the date of the fitting, it will be necessary to go to Nashoba on your own before the first session for a private fitting. Helmets will be sold at the fitting. Helmets can also be rented.
Transportation: The bus will meet at McClennen Park. We will begin boarding at approximately 1:50pm. Return location will be the same. If a session needs to be canceled due to inclement weather, the session will be made up the next consecutive Wednesday.
Registration Note: Please note that registration numbers are limited and accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Parent Volunteers: Parent volunteers are allowed to ski/snowboard for free, but must attend all four weeks of the program. Parent volunteers are assigned to same group for the entire program and are responsible for taking attendance, assisting with equipment rental, and chaperoning participants at Nashoba Valley. Parent volunteer spaces are limited. If you are interested in being a parent volunteer, please contact Arlington Recreation at firstname.lastname@example.org
