Thanks for a great season! Adult Group Lessons are now closed for the season, but private lessons will be offered as long as conditions allow. Please call to make reservations. 

Private Clinics

Private ski and snowboard clinics are a great way to improve your skills and get familiar with Sugarloaf's legendary terrain. One on one lessons with a professional ski or snowboard instructor will take you to the next level safely and efficiently; whether it's your first time on the hill, or you're ready to tackle double black diamonds.

All clinics are open to walk-ins anytime during the winter season, as long as an instructor is available. We recommend making a reservation* in advance by calling Perfect Turn at 207-237-6924, stopping by the Private Desk in the Base Lodge, or outside at the Perfect Turn Hut. Lift tickets are required.
