HYAA is partnering with McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester, NH to provide ski & snowboard lessons to students during McIntyre’s Mighty Macs After School lesson program! (This is the same great program previously offered by Hooksett PTA!)

McIntyre has been providing snow sports programs to children for over 25 years. McIntyre provides children with a fun, safe, and un-intimidating environment to learn a sport that will last them a lifetime! Snowsports also keeps children active & healthy in the winter.
The Mighty Macs program at McIntyre teaches children the fundamentals of skiing and snowboarding in a small-group setting. Classes are structured according to age & ability. The Mighty Macs after school lessons are 2 hours long. There are 6 children per group (levels 1-3) and up to 8 children per group (levels 4+). Mighty Macs Lessons run for 5 consecutive weeks. All children, grades kindergarten through 8th grade, are able to participate. (Lessons for kindergarteners are 1 hour long).

Hooksett will be attending Snowsports Club at McIntyre on:
Mondays from 4:00pm – 6:00pm beginning January 6, 2020
All Students (except morning kindergarten) will be transported by bus from their school to the mountain and need to be picked up at McIntyre at 6pm
*Lessons will take place on: Jan 6, Jan 13, Jan 27, Feb 3, Feb 10 *No lessons on Jan 20th for MLK Jr. Holiday

Registration and Fitting

Please choose the night that works best for you, however a parent/legal guardian must attend one of them for your child to be eligible to participate. Registration will ONLY be available during these times (You cannot register directly with McIntyre). Meetings will be held in the lodge at McINTYRE SKI AREA where we will offer an overview of the program, registration, fittings, and answer questions.

Chaperones Needed

Our chaperones are what make this program run safely and efficiently! We are in need of 12-15 dedicated chaperones to help out on ski nights from 3:30-6pm. Skiing / Snowboarding experience is not required! Did you know if you commit to 3 days of chaperoning with our group you are eligible for the adult ski or snowboard program?!
