Carroll School is excited to once again offer our winter program at Nashoba Valley. This program runs on Fridays beginning January 5, 2018 and ending February 16, 2018.

Your child should have enough experience skiing/snowboarding that he/she can be independent with a buddy on the mountain.

If not, the 6-week lesson package is a way for your child to begin their adventures in skiing/snowboarding or refresh their skills. Lessons are 1 hour in length, from 3:00-4:00 pm (after they ski with a Carroll adult). The lift ticket is valid through 10:00 pm. *Lessons Pickup: You will need to pick up your child at the Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford at 4:00 pm. They will miss the bus returning to Carroll.
