Snowhawks lessons are available daily starting Christmas week. Each lesson is 1-1/2 hours long. Snowhawks participants will be grouped with children of like age and skill, typically in classes of 5-8 students.

15 minutes prior to lesson time, all Snowhawks participants should gather in the Hawk’s Nest, the blue and yellow fenced area to the left of the Main Lodge. All of our Snowsports Pros are specially trained to make your child’s day at Mohawk Mountain an enjoyable one. Their priority is to accommodate each student’s needs, interests and abilities. After the session, children are dismissed in the Hawk’s Nest. We encourage parents to meet with their child’s instructor to discuss their needs and progression. Our aim is to get your child comfortable on the snow and excited to come back and hit the slopes!

The Perch is now open to the public! Adjacent to the Hawk’s Nest learning area, parents and friends can relax and observe Snowhawks lessons from the warm comfort of The Perch. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase, so enjoy a hot coffee while you watch your child learn the fundamentals of skiing or boarding!

The Perch is open to the public Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

For a minimal premium fee, any rental equipment will be pre-set to your requirements and your spot in the lesson will be guaranteed. Make all of your arrangements before you even arrive at the mountain!

Required waivers and rental agreement forms will be completed upon your arrival at Mohawk Mountain. All waivers and agreement forms will require a parent/guardian signature. All preregistration must be completed online through SNOWTRAX by at least 4 pm the day before your program of choice in order for us to process your request.
