Nub’s Nob Winter Sports School and Alpine Racing is proud to offer special training programs to our younger skiers/boarders/racers throughout the season, Geared toward elementary and middle school age skiers, Nub’s Nob Ski/Snowboard Academy (Academy) and Nub’s Nob Junior Alpine Racing Team (JART) start the first weekend in January and continue through the season to improve overall ski ability and alpine race technique.

See the chart comparison below to determine which program is best suited for your child’s needs.

After 40 years, we are still offering our very successful “Nub’s Nob Ski/Snowboard Academy” on Wednesday and Friday evenings, 6pm to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 2pm to 4pm. Academy will focus more on skiing and riding and less on racing than in the past. The academy is a great opportunity for young skiers/boaders (under the age of 15) looking to improve their overall skiing skills while having fun with other skiers of their age.

“Nub’s Nob Junior Alpine Racing Team” (JART) is geared toward skiers under the age of 15. Our highly certified Alpine Coaches will introduce the great sport of alpine racing, work on fundamental skills needed to become successful racers, and teach appropriate gate techniques and tactics. Training will take place Monday and Wednesday evenings, 6:00pm to 7:30pm, Saturdays 9:00 to 11:00am and 12:00 to 1:30pm, and will include several team races throughout the season!
