Carroll School is excited to once again offer our winter program at Nashoba Valley. This program runs on Fridays beginning January 4, 2019 and ending February 15, 2019 (NOTE: Lessons end on Feb 8). We anticipate a great ski season with lots of snow. Even if the snow is scarce, Nashoba does a tremendous job with snowmaking. Please find the specifics of the program below.

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.
