SnowSchool is a bridge connecting kids to the world of snow science and winter recreation. Our curriculums are designed for kindergarten to high school and combine a field trip to the snow with classroom presentations. Students learn about hydrology, winter ecology, wildlife, and snow crystals. They also make a vital connection between the snowpack—the largest reservoir in the West—and the water they drink every day.
Who We Work With
Every year, SnowSchool works with 35,000 students at 70 sites across the country. For many of these students, winter is a new experience. A majority attend Title 1 schools with large populations of low-income families. For more than half, SnowSchool is their first time strapping on a pair of snowshoes. Our educators are volunteers who want to share their passion for winter and adventure with kids—some are even SnowSchool alumni.
