Alpine Fun New England Style

The Dartmouth Skiway winter venue is a daytime destination, but it does offer discounted "Twilight" tickets for visitors arriving after mid-day. Its 17,000 square-foot McLane Family Lodge was built in 2001 and is an award-winning design using local materials like native White Pine in its construction. It houses the retail shop where visitors can find souvenirs and necessities for the slopes, along with equipment rentals for guests lacking personal skis or snowboards.

The SnowSports Ski School is found in the lodge and provides lessons with a family-friendly vibe that relaxes newbies here to learn. Skilled instructors offer 90-minute classes for one to three people. Five weekly programs for kids are offered at the Dartmouth Skiway winter venue, broken up into groups for ages 3 to 12. These programs are eight weeks long and cater to any skill level.

The Dartmouth Skiway resort also has adult programs, including Learn to Ski, Women's Only, and the Dartmouth Graduate Students Midweek Group. These are also eight-week programs that run for roughly 90 minutes each session.
