Explorers (Ages 8-12)

ExplorersKids get expert, caring instruction so they learn quickly and gain confidence. Mount Sunapee features the South Peak beginner area complete with five lifts servicing 13 trails. This separate mini-mountain area is excellent for learning, allowing beginners to progress in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

Explorers is a program designed for 8-12 year olds. The program is offered either half- or full-day and comes with an all-mountain lift ticket, lesson(s) and rentals. Full-day is 4 hours of lessons (Two 2-hour sessions) and includes lunch; half-day is one 2-hour lesson (does not include lunch).

Another option is our Amplitude Plus Program.  This will allow your child to visit Mount Sunapee and receive lessons (and rentals if needed) on weekends and holidays for one simple flat rate starting Christmas vacation through the end of March. 

Lesson Hours:

Full-day: 10am-3pm
Half-day: 10am-12pm or 1pm-3pm

On weekends and holidays, children can arrive at the Learning Center between 8:00am and 9:30am for their full day lesson.

Reserve 48 hours in advance online or by calling 603-763-3564. Limited space available if reserved less than 48 hours in advance. Explorers fills up quickly on weekends and holiday periods. Reservations are accepted for full-day and morning half-day only. Afternoon half-days are on a first come first serve basis.

If rental equipment is needed, sign up right in the Learning Center.
