Adult & Young Adult Day Programs

The SnowSports School's Adult and Children's Group Clinics will conclude for the season on Sunday, April 1. We will be offering Private Clinics, available by reservation only, through April 7.

Learn to Ski & Snowboard

Sunday River's SnowSports School offers one of the most comprehensive programs in the country to introduce first-timers to skiing or snowboarding

Group Clinics

Group Clinics (ages 13+) are offered for skiers and snowboarders with ability levels ranging from beginner to expert. These programs are designed for participants who already have a lift ticket and equipment, and are interested in improving their on-snow experience. 

Clinics are 90-minutes in duration and are divided into three levels: 

  • Green clinics for beginners will help you build confidence and skills on beginner terrain as you learn to smoothly link turns and control your speed. 
  • Blue clinics designed to improve your performance on intermediate terrain and get you ready for expert terrain. The focus is on development of more efficient turns.
  • Black clinics for advanced skiers and riders designed to build the skills and technique needed to tackle more challenging terrain.
