Lessons & Programs
Ages: 1-14 | All skiing & snowboarding abilities
Bringing the family to Whiteface? Make Bear Den Lodge your first stop. At the Whiteface Snowsports School we've got something for everyone, from the non-skiing little ones to the budding powder hounds! With nearby parking and one-stop shopping for lift tickets, lessons and rentals, we make it easy for everyone in the family to enjoy a great day at the mountain. The Bunny Hutch chair lift connects Bear Den Mountain to the rest of the Whiteface Mountain, and a shuttle service runs all day between the newly constructed Bear Den Mountain Lodge and the Main Base Lodge.
