Private Lessons

Bear & Cub

For ages 2 and up, with a parent. 

As a parent, there's no greater joy than seeing a smile on your child's face—throw in a pair of skis, snowflakes, and rosy cheeks, and you have hit the trifecta.

Our Bear & Cub private lessons are designed specifically for moms and/or dads to learn to ski or ride alongside their little ones. Our world-class instructors will introduce your child to the fun of skiing or snowboarding, help you brush-up on your technique, and teach you ways to practice together outside of the class.

You'll strengthen your parent-child bond and have a blast exploring Mother Nature's snow-covered playground here at Sugarloaf. The private learning environment will help your child to feel more comfortable and confident on the hill, and you won't have to miss a moment of their experience!
