High Park Ski Club

Experience our true Canadian winter while staying fit and making new friends. Our team of 80 certified instructors is trained to help you learn and develop your skills in downhill or cross-country snow sports.

Our Snow Schools

NOTE: This year due to COVID-19 we will not be able to accommodate beginner lessons. Following guidelines of social distancing, instructors are able to safely teach members who can get on and off the chairlifts on their own, This means that we will offer lessons to skiers who are at steps 3 and up and to snowboarders who are at the novice, intermediate and advanced levels.

Free and Unlimited Lessons

Once you join High Park Ski Club, all on-snow classes are free and unlimited! Better still, classes are small so you can get the attention you need to improve and feel more confident on the snow. 

Whether you are a beginner, an intermediate, or an expert, there is a class for you on any day trip! Not sure of your level? An instructor will assess your level before the lessons start.

Certified instructors will also guide you through the big mountains and trails on overnight bus trips. Yes, you can improve your skills in downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, or snowboarding while travelling with your club friends in Ontario, Québec, Vermont, and beyond!

Check out our three ski school programs - downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding. Need more encouragement? Don't just take our word for how great our lessons are, here’s what our members say about our lessons….

Downhill Skiing

"I joined the club to become a better skier and because the instructors are amazing!!!! The membership fee includes unlimited lessons, which is a bargain as you’d pay a lot at a ski resort. HPSC Snow School is 100% responsible for transforming me from a beginner into an advanced skier who is comfortable racing, on moguls, the steeps, ice, powder… you-name-it. The only negative? My winters now feel too short!"

Cross-Country Skiing

“Taking those awesome HPSC lessons with highly skilled CANSI certified instructors when I first started gave me the groundwork in technique and the confidence to pursue my CANSI Level 1 certification. Not to mention all the fun I had – and still have – with a fun and dedicated group of cross-country skiers!”

"After casually snowboarding for about ten years, I was getting frustrated because my skills were not improving. HPSC helped me rediscover the joy of snowboarding by teaching me new skills in a comfortable and non-judgmental environment. The friendly instructors made it easy for me to refine my technique and enabled me to attain my level 1 CASI certification."
