COVID-19 Impact

In light of the current health crisis, all athletic facilities remain closed until further notice.

There are several virtual physical education classes being offered during summer term 2020 as well as a few virtual FLIP classes available for the community.

The College has suspended the requirements of a successful swim test and all remaining physical education credits for those undergraduate students who are graduating at the conclusion of summer ('20), fall, winter, or spring terms of the 2020-21 academic year and have not yet met these requirements.


Attendance and PE Credit

Successful completion of this class for PE credit is based on your attendance. There are seven classes.  You must attend four of your classes during your regular class time.  Be sure your instructor records your attendance every week.

You can make up as many as three of your seven classes by going to the Skiway one time for each class missed, having your season pass swiped before 2:30 p.m., getting a lift ticket and skiing/riding without a class.  Your make-up day will thus be recorded electronically.  If you neglect to swipe your pass and obtain a lift ticket, you will not receive credit for that day.  Retain your daily lift tickets as your record of attendance.  You cannot attend a class other than your own as a make-up. 

If circumstances dictate that you make a permanent change of class section, each student may do so once.  Make-up days may be completed any day prior to March 3, 2020.  On make-up days, please do not ride any lift that you have not ridden with your class. You must leave campus no later than 2:00 p.m. to receive credit for a make-up day.

Dress & Equipment

Dressing in layers will allow you the greatest flexibility to adapt to changing conditions. As a guideline, have a layer next to the skin that will wick moisture away from the body. Your second layer(s) should provide warmth and insulation. The outer layer should be windproof and waterproof. Items often forgotten are your helmet, face protection (neck gaiter, scarf or face mask); eye protection (sunglasses and/or goggles with 100% U/V); skin protection (chapstick, skin cream, tissues); hand/feet protection (dry gloves, glove liners, dry socks, hand and foot heat packs).

Use a bag large enough to accommodate your boots, extra clothes and accessories. Keep these items together and ready to go, rather than looking for all of them every time you go to ski/ride.  Make sure your name is boldly marked on your bag. Leave valuables in your dorm. Lockers are available in the Lodge.

A Dartmouth undergrads can lease equipment, take seven lessons and purchase a pass for $444 ($170+$175+$99). If they ski or ride for seven lessons and use the free shuttle to come to the Skiway seven additional days, their cost of skiing is less than $32/day ($444/14) for equipment, lessons, lifts, and transportation.

All participants are required to wear a properly fitting ASTM approved helmet while in class. Discounted helmet purchases are available at the January Ski Fitting Day.


All lessons take place at the Dartmouth Skiway. Transportation is provided via bus.
