Dagmar Resort is the best student learning centre around including 18 slopes with varied terrain for all skill levels. Our beginner area is the largest around with a gentle slope and a Magic Carpet Lift (like a moving conveyer belt) which makes learning quick and easy! Our lift capacity will ensure your students are skiing and not standing in line.

Our student friendly cafeteria offers lunch options your students will love. Our charming chalet has beautiful views overlooking the slopes where teachers can watch their students in our Lounge while enjoying a coffee from our Coffee Bar.

All students will be outfitted in equipment customized to their size and skill level and will SKI OUT of the rental shop into their lessons. You’ll have to see it to believe it!

Testimonials

Read what some of our guests have written below:

We have been skiing at many snow schools in southern Ontario. None have treated us better than Dagmar. They were extremely organized and got our students on the snow quickly. The lineups were short and a great day was had by all. I would recommend these slopes to all schools.

Randy KirschVice Principal - Foundations Private School


Our school had a wonderful experience at Dagmar this winter. We were very impressed with how organized the lessons were and how helpful everyone at Dagmar was. Instructors were very professional and the staff in the rental shop was very accommodating to our students. We are looking forward to returning next year.
