Lollipop Schedule and Information

Lollipop Races are a great way for the littlest Sugarloafers to start their racing careers. Minicuffers and Bubblecuffers under 7 navigate a simple race course, and everyone wins a lollipop at the finish, and an award at the end of the season. The five race series starts in February, with the first race being an "organizer" to get times and arrange teams. Please let your child's coach know if your child would like to participate. Lollipop Races are always on Sundays and will be held on the landing above the Ski School Hut at 9:30am. Awards will be given out at the flags for the previous week's race at 11:00am.

Junior Professional Program (Ages 13-16)

Ready to get serious about a ski career? The Junior Professional Program is designed for 13-16 year olds who are ready to take their skiing or riding to the next level. We encourage a non-competitive atmosphere where teens learn the finer points of skiing or snowboarding from some of our most passionate and experienced coaches while exploring the whole mountain. The program is designed to eventually prepare participants for jobs as ski and snowboard coaches, and expose them to teaching situations in their final year of the program. Another facet focuses on serious all-mountain skiing and riding. Sugarloaf has some of the most challenging terrain and conditions in the east; we want our kids to experience it all! Special guest coaches throughout the season add to the overall experience.
