Activity Options

Standard Ski or Snowboard

You will enjoy a day of skiing on the mountain, and leave the campus between 6:00 AM and 7:30 AM. A bus name and specific time will be sent to you at least 3 days prior to the event.

Nordic Skiing & Tubing

This wonderful experience will have students skiing through the woods in the backcountry around Mt. Washington.

Snowshow & Tubing

Brentwood staff and students will spend half of the day snowshoeing and the remainder of the day tubing after lunch.

A shuttle bus will move folks from the snowshoe area to the tubing area at 12:45 PM.

A Brentwood bus with the Winterlude Logo


Brentwood is covering the full cost of transportation to Mt. Washington, and the mountain is providing the School with a discount on all rentals, lift tickets, and accessories.

Students will pack a lunch in the dining hall before departure to remove the need to buy lunch on the mountain. We will be bussing directly back to the School for a special dinner—the Winterlude Banquet—at the conclusion of the day.

If parents are budgeting for the day, the cost will not exceed $150.00 (Rentals, Lift, Lessons, and Accessories). If students have their own gear and are not partaking in lessons, the cost will be approximately $30.00.


Brentwood Pickup Locations

Professional drivers supporting our fourteen 56-passenger coaches will be spread across the School. It is important that all students and staff know where their buses will be parked for pick-up.

Students and Staff will receive an email with their bus assignments at least 3 days prior to the event.


Duncan Pick-Up Location

Duncan pick-up times will be communicated to all day student families 24 hours prior to the event. Busses will return directly to the School on return for the Winterlude Banquet.


Mountain Washington Pick-Up Locations

Throughout Winterlude, a Brentwood shuttle will be running between the Main Lodge (Ski, Snowboard, and Tubing) and Raven Lodge (Cross Country/Ski Students).

The Shuttle Schedule will be set at least 3 days prior to the date of the event.
