Villa Roma Skiing Lessons

No matter your skill set, skiing is one of the top winter sports for kids in Callicoon, NY. Catskills skiing is a guaranteed good time and a great workout! To start your Catskills skiing adventure, hop on one of Villa Roma’s shuttles. The ski hill is located about half a mile away from our resort. Villa Roma boasts a beginner hill and an intermediate hill. Both of our hills are very wide and have a small vertical drop of 300 feet, so this is a great place to try several winter sports for kids. We also have on-site skiing lessons, where children as young as three-years-old can learn the fundamentals of skiing! Another one of our favorite places to ski is Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park. Located in Monticello, NY, Holiday Mountain offers visitors lessons. After all, Holiday Mountain does take pride in their park as the place, “where great skiers begin.”
