Warwick, NY 07 Jan
“Can we please come back next week??” My kids begged as we left Mount Peter ski area, after their first ski experience. At Mount Peter they offer free ski lessons to beginners (equipment rentals and ski lift tickets are not included). We all joined the free lessons and were amazed at how each of us, from adult to teen to six year old, all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The excellent instructors taught us the guidelines for successful skiing during the hour long lesson. Then we continued practicing until we felt ready to tackle an easier slope. Since we arrived in the afternoon, we didn’t actually have the time to take the lift up to the beginner slope, but hopefully next time we’ll make it there. Mount Peter also offers more advanced lessons as well as the adorable Pete’s Pals lessons for preschoolers. In addition to the beginner slopes, there are also advanced slopes for experienced skiers to enjoy. The main cabin features a restaurant and adjoining pub. All this is only about an hour’s drive from NYC.
Adjacent to the skiing mountain is the snow tubing park. Although we did not get to participate in the snow tubing during our visit, we got to see the hill with all the people zooming down and having a blast.
