Welcome to Snowhawks ~Established 1984~

Since 1984 in Toronto and 1987 in Ottawa, Snowhawks Ski & Snowboard School
has developed a reputation for quality, safety and fun.

Add to this a super group of qualified instructors, our very own chaperons, a variety of the best mountains, a special atmosphere and you have the reasons why our members return year after year.

We offer a range of programs for youngsters, teenagers and adults which include:

  • Instruction in the Snowhawks Ski & Snowboard School
  • All lift tickets (Wednesday Adult Getaway excluded)
  • Return travel from resort area via luxury coach
  • Special event days… races, bump competitions, slopeside competitions, end of season parties & much more…
  • End of season Student Evaluation Report (for Saturday & Sunday youth programs)
  • Discounts at Sporting Life

Our personalized attention to each member’s progress & our stress on supervision
are what parents appreciate most about the Snowhawks children and teen programs.

Of course, kids love having fun, so at Snowhawks we ensure that all are treated to a great deal of it! Our Wednesday adult group has come to appreciate the combination of excellent instruction and an ambiance which only Snowhawks offers.

We invite you to read on about our Christmas, Mid-Winter and Spring Break programs as well as our Adult Getaway. As Directors, we look forward to meeting all new Snowhawks members at our promotional events this fall, and also on snow!
