Nice, Small Ski Area with Lessons for KidsFlag review
Our 3 year old daughter started taking skiing lessons at the family-owned Toggenburg Mountain Ski Center (known locally as "Tog") this year, which is also where my husband learned to ski and snowboard. The instructors are patient and kind, and the mountain is fairly small and not too overwhelming. If you are in the Syracuse area with kids who are just learning to ski or board, Tog was recently ranked the best place in the area for them to get started by the Syracuse New Times.
Tips for Families
Childcare services are available for non-skiing children. Skiing lessons are sometimes cheaper when purchased with a season pass. If group lessons don't work with your schedule, private lessons can be scheduled in advance. Be aware that Tog isn't super close to Syracuse - you're going to drive for a while, and you're going to end up kind of in the middle of nowhere. Pack supplies and food accordingly.

There are a few eateries at the ski area, but when we go, we pack our own lunches. Grab a bunch of prepared lunch stuff at Wegmans DeWitt before you head out; there's something there for everyone.
