Guaranteed Learning Method (ages 15 and up)

At Sugarloaf, ski lessons and snowboard lessons are as effective as they are fun. We're known for getting beginner skiers and riders off to a great start with our Guaranteed Learning Method: an approach to lessons combining progressive slope difficulty with the renowned Perfect Turn coaching system. If it's your first time on skis or a board, this method is the easiest way to get started safely and have fun.

  • Lift ticket (limited mountain access... easy trails only!)

Green Terrain Package
If you're still learning, but feel ready to take on more of the mountain, consider a Green Terrain Package. You'll get a lesson and equipment, with a little more mountain to explore:

  • 90 minute lesson
  • Mid-mountain lift ticket

How it Works

Learn to Ski and Learn to Ride lessons are offered twice daily; choose from a morning session from 10:30-12:00, or an afternoon session from 1:15-2:45. Please register 30 minutes before your lesson starts. On your first day, come to the Perfect Turn desk on the lower level of the Base Lodge at either 10:00am or 12:45pm. You'll buy your ticket, then head to the Rental Shop on the top floor of the Base Lodge to meet your coach and get fitted for equipment. You and your coach will leave from the Rental Shop and go to the Perfect Turn Hut located on The Landing to start your 90 minute lesson. If it's your second or third day of the program, you can go straight to the Perfect Turn Hut.


1 day: $90

3 days: $190
