Como Park Ski Center

Registration is open for children and adults for snowboarding and ski lessons at the Como Park Ski Center. There are clinics, group lessons, and private lessons for all ages in downhill skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing, plus downhill and board lessons for adults only. Fees vary widely. Classes start as soon as Dec. 14, though most begin during winter break and early in 2020. Lessons operate out of the ski chalet, which takes over the golf clubhouse for the season. (If you need map coordinates, the address is 1431 Lexington Parkway N.)


Below are the activity schedules at North Dale and Northwest Como Recreation Centers. You can register for a specific activity in person at each park. Or, you can register online and get full information of the activities at North Dale or Northwest Como.

(Unless we made a mistake, if a fee is not listed, the activity is free.)
