Get to know the mountain
Safety is very important at Hogadon Ski Area and it’s encouraged that skiers and snowboarders read the responsibility code before getting out on the hill. Making sure you know the rules of the hills, especially for beginners is of utmost importance. For skiers that don’t feel overly comfortable on the mountain, lessons are also available.
