Learning is fun!

We understand that learning to ski or snowboard feels anything but natural at first. That’s why our instructors are here to help you love winter as much as they do!

Snow School is not just for the kids! Maybe it’s your first time on the snow. Maybe you’re switching between skiing and snowboarding. Maybe you haven’t hit the slopes in years and want to regain confidence. Or maybe you’re an expert who wants to work on a specific skill. No matter your level, we’ll help you build confidence, progress your skills safely, and make great memories at the same time!

Whether you’re here for the day, staying for a week or living locally, our dedicated team will help you make the most of your time on the snow. 


We're not so far away!

We are less than a 2-hour drive from Sydney and well worth the drive! Cape Smokey has three beginner trails from the summit and has made the progression for all levels at Cape Smokey some of the best in Nova Scotia. Our unique location, adjacent to Cape Breton Highlands National Park and Cape Smokey Provincial Park means we not only develop winter sports skills at Cape Smokey but also a sense of belonging and stewardship within our National and Provincial Parks.
