The importance of lessons cannot be overstated. We suggest that first-time skiers/riders take a lesson. Lessons allow the beginner to get started right and the experienced skier/rider to improve. Please be sure to include this recommendation when talking to your group.
From past experience, the Sugar Mountain Ski/Snowboard School has determined that group lessons are not suitable for skiers/riders under 8 years old. Children 7 and under interested in lessons should consider a private lesson, the Sugar Bear Ski School (ages 5-10), or the Polar Bear Snowboard School (ages 7-14). Registration for these programs must be arranged through the Ski/Snowboard School.
Ski and Snowboard lessons are available every day on the hour from 9:00am – 3:00pm as well as evening lessons at 6:00, 7:00 and 8:00pm. Students should meet for lessons 15 minutes prior to the scheduled lesson time at the Ski/Snowboard School.
When calculating the total number of group participants, do NOT include children 4 and under, adults 70 and over, or any child enrolling in the Sugar Bear or Polar Bear Programs.
Group Tickets and Rental Equipment Pick-up the Night Before- For Full Day sessions, Group Leaders may pay for and pick up lift/slope tickets, equipment rental forms, and lesson tickets the night before the group plans to ski/ride. The Group Leader MUST have accurate numbers. There will be NO refunds should someone in your group decide not to ski/ride the following morning.
For your convenience, groups skiing/riding multiple, consecutive days may keep their rental equipment overnight without having to turn it in after their first skiing/riding session. If your group would like this service, please let the Group Sales Cashier know at the time of your first transaction. The Cashier will then make the necessary arrangements.
