Group Clinics

These clinics are for adults & young adults (ages 15 & up), starting at green terrain for those who know how to ride a lift and can turn on skis. We meet at the Perfect Turn Hut outside of Base Lodge on The Landing. It's log cabin style building roughly 100 yards up from the Base Lodge, with a Perfect Turn sign.

Group clinics are divided into three levels...

Green clinics are for beginning abilities and will build your confidence and skills on Green terrain as you learn to smoothly link turns and control your speed.

Blue clinics are for skiers and riders who want to build on their current skills by exploring various turn shapes and sizes that will allow you to comfortably ski and ride this terrain.

Black clinics are for advanced skiers and riders. These clinics are designed to help you fine-tune your technique and tactics on all of Sugarloaf's famed terrain.

90 minute clinics leave every day at 10:30 am and 1:15 pm

90 minute (lift ticket required) $35
Teen (Ages 15-18) $25
Teen (Ages 15-18) Five pack of lessons $60
Adult (Ages 19+) Five pack of lessons $75

Lift/clinic combo is $10 more than the full priced ticket.


Glade Tours

Brackett Basin and Burnt Mountain are vast. They encompass hundreds of acres of silent, powder-filled wilderness. For Sugarloafers looking to explore these regions, and get some ski tips along the way, our glade tours are perfect. You'll recieve some route-finding tips in the newly expanded area and learn powder skiing techniques in Sugarloaf's rugged sidecountry. Helmets are required.

Alpine Touring Clinics

Expert/Advanced Skiers Only

Our Alpine Touring Clinics are ideal for the outdoor enthusiast looking to get more out of their alpine experience.  We offer two different clinic experiences that combine the excitement of skiing Sugarloaf with the thrill of the wilderness in our sidecountry terrain on Burnt Mountain. Clinics are designed for advanced or expert skiers only who are able to handle a variety of conditions on challenging terrain. Both clinics emphasize the uphill experience as much as the downhill. Helmets are required.

Groups go out every Sunday morning. Please call 207-237-6924 with at least 24 hours' notice to make a reservation. Click here for more information.

Sidecountry/Alpine Glade Camp

Expert/Advanced Skiers Only

This is a 3-day program for advanced skiers who want to sharpen their off-piste skiing while exploring the numerous glades of Sugarloaf, Brackett Basin, and Burnt Mountain. The program will be led by a PSIA level 3 certified coach who will further develop your skills for skiing trees, powder, steep terrain, and bumps in combination with tactics and safety in remote areas. Terrain options will be influenced by weather and snow conditions; access to some terrain requires climbing. Helmets are required. Call 207-237-6924 for more information. 

If you are looking for more than a 2-day experience, you can custom design a program for your group of five or more. We will tailor your esperience to your needs and skill level. Our Women's Turn program can include a variety of options, such as 5 hours of on-snow coaching per day, video analysis, equipment demos, lunch daily, and apre-ski seminars. Pick your dates and let us do the rest.
