Adult & Young Adult Day Programs
The Perfect Turn Ski & Snowboard School offers one of the most comprehensive programs in the country to introduce first-timers to skiing or snowboarding. All programs start at the Discovery Center at South Ridge Lodge--an entire facility designed and dedicated to making your experience easy.
Group Clinics (ages 15+) are offered for skiers and snowboarders with ability levels ranging from beginner to expert terrain. This program is designed for participants who already have a lift ticket and equipment, and are just interested in improving their on-snow experience.
Group clinics are divided into three levels:
Green clinics are for beginner abilities and will help you build your confidence and skills on Green/beginner terrain as you learn to smoothly link turns and control your speed.
Blue clinics are designed to introduce you to Blue/intermediate terrain. Focus is on development of early weight transfer and a more efficient parallel turn. A specialty "Introduction to Bumps" clinic is also available daily.
- Black clinics are for advanced skiers and snowboarders and are designed to bring you to the skill level of the coach. Focus is on creating a smoother, quicker turn and making your lower body active while quieting your upper body.

The Green Terrain Package is designed for green/beginner terrain skiers and snowboarders who are still working on the basics. Package includes a 90-minute Group Clinic, equipment rental, and limited-access lift ticket*. Rental equipment may be picked up at any rental shop, and clinics meet slopeside in front of the South Ridge Lodge.
|One-Day Green Terrain Package||$95||10:30AM or 1:15PM|
*Limited access lift ticket includes the Sundance Surface Lift, South Ridge Express, North Peak Express, and the Chondola, which covers the majority of Sunday River's green/beginner terrain.
If you would like to accelerate your learning process in alpine skiing, telemark skiing, snowboarding, or race training skills; one-on-one instruction is the way to go. Private clinics are available for all ages and abilities for both skiers and snowboarders.
