Learn To Ski and Snowboard

  Perfect Turn will close for the 2016/17 season on Sunday, April 9.

Private lessons offered on instructor availability basis. Please call to make reservations. 

Guaranteed Learning Method (ages 15 and up)

Learning to ski and ride at Sugarloaf is a blast. For one thing, we have developed our own system called the Guaranteed Learning Method, which combines graduated ski lengths and progressive slope difficulty with the renowned Perfect Turn coaching system. You will take familiar movements and turn them into skiing or riding! And the other thing? Well, there are lots of other things. Read on.


If you've never experienced the joy of gliding over the snow on skis or a snowboard, then we have a deal for you. Our Learn to Ski and Learn to Snowboard packages are specially priced and designed to make the most of your first experience with these two winter snow sports. For just $59, first-timers like yourself will get a 90 minute lesson, rental equipment that is specially designed for beginners and a limited access lift ticket for a day.

Learn-to lessons are offered twice daily. Check in for the morning session is at 10:00am; the lesson runs from 10:30am-12:00pm. Check in for the afternoon session is at 12:45pm; the lesson runs from 1:15-2:45pm.  

If you loved your first day on snow, and can't wait for more, purchase an upgrade for 2 more days of lift tickets, rentals and 90 minute clinics for $100. Or, if you are ready to jump in all the way, you can purchase all 3 days at once for just $149.  


You may purchase tickets at the Perfect Turn Desk and then go to our rental shop on the top floor of the Base Lodge where you will meet your coach and be outfitted with board and boots. Day 2 and 3 meet outside to the left side of the Perfect Turn Hut. Clinic Length: Day 1 clinics go for 1.5 hours. 90 minutes for day 2 and 3.
