Skiing at Putney

Cross-Country Skiing

Putney offers recreational and competitive cross­-country ski programs on its 40 kilometers of groomed trails. Skiers of all levels have the opportunity to learn skills and technique. Skiers are expected to provide their own equipment, learn how to take care of it, and how to wax skis. The school provides waxing facilities and waxes for racing and training. A limited supply of skis is available for novice skiers.  Opportunities beyond inter­scholastic racing are available for serious competitive skiers.

Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding

We travel to Mount Snow on Wednesdays and Sundays during the winter trimester. This activity is open to individ­uals of all skill levels. Mount Snow main­tains over 100 trails and has excellent snowmaking. Rentals and lessons are available and there is also a half-pipe for snowboarders. A minimum number of lessons is required to ensure that partici­pants can negotiate the mountain safely.
