Learn to ski and snowboard

We have ski and snowboard lessons for all ages and abilities throughout the winter. And with our new FLEX lesson program, you choose how many classes you wish to take and when you want to take them.

Our Mogul Mite ski lesson program is for 4 to 6 year old children of all abilities. Our Ridge Rider snowboard lessons are for children aged 5 and 6 years old. If you are 7 or older and have never skied or snowboarded before, then choose our Discover program. And if you are already comfortable on our Bunny Hills, then our Adventure ski or snowboard lesson program is the one to pick.

All our classes have a maximum of 5 participants per class. Smaller classes, more individualized attention, more learning and more FUN!

Share the magic of skiing with your child and join our Parents and Tots program. This one-hour class is offered for three consecutive Monday afternoons in January and in February, and is designed to introduce your child to the sport of skiing with their favorite teacher ... you! Of course, we will also have one of our professional instructors with the class to help guide you. One parent must accompany every tot and the parent should be at a blue level of skiing. Parents can either bring their own equipment or rent ours for $42 for the three lesson session.

Our Mogul Mite ski program is for children aged 4-6 years old of all abilities; from never ever skiied to already a whiz on the chairlift. Most classes begin on our large Bunny Hill with our two easy-to-use carpet lifts. Class sizes are a maximum of 5 children per class which will ensure that your child has both individual attention and guaranteed FUN! You are of course welcome to be close by if they need a little extra support.

And with our new FLEX program, you decide how many classes you want to take and when you want to take them. At the beginning of each class, we divide the participants on the basis of age and ability. And then off to have fun for the one-hour class.

Our Mogul Mite program includes an area wide lift ticket for the day and ski rentals are also available.

For advanced 4 - 6 year olds who are ready for the chairlift or are already using the chairlift, we have an advanced Mogul Mite class running at 9:30am on weekends and during the holidays. Class sizes for Mogul Mites who are using the chairlift are a maximum of three children since one instructor can only ride the quad chair with a maximum of three children. As the class size is smaller, an additional fee of $10 per child will be charged for this advanced 9:30am Mogul Mite course. This $10 fee would be paid at reception at Sunridge.

You are never too young to start snowboarding. Ridge Riders will introduce your child to the fun sport of snowboarding and is for children ages 5 and 6 years old. For children younger than 5 yrs, we recommend private lessons as one-on-one instruction works best with the little ones. We do have rentals available for some 3 year olds as our smallest snowboard boot is a size 9 and our smallest board is 80cm. Class sizes are a maximum of 5 children per class which will ensure that your child has both individual attention and guaranteed FUN! You are of course welcome to be close by if they need a little extra support.

And with our new FLEX program, you decide how many classes you want to take and when you want to take them. At the beginning of each class, we divide the snowboarders on the basis of age and ability and then they are off to learn and have fun for the one-hour class.

Our Ridge Rider program includes an area wide lift ticket for the day and snowboard rentals are also available.

If you've never skied or snowboarded before, then our Discover program is the one to start out with. You can take one or two Discover classes and with our new FLEX program, you decide when to take your lessons. And there will be a maximum of 5 people in your class so you will have lots of individual attention to introduce you to the sport of skiing or snowboarding, get comfortable with the equipment and get you up and down on our Bunny Hills.

Our 90 minute Discover program includes a Bunny Hill lift ticket only and ski or snowboard rentals are of course available.

Our FLEX Adventure ski and snowboard class is for everyone aged 7 and older who have taken at least two lessons in our Discover program or are already comfortable on the Bunny Hill. With our new FLEX program, you can create your own lesson program (from 1 to 5 lessons) and you decide when you want to take the classes. Take two in one day, take one each day of the holidays, take one every weekend. The choice is yours! We even offer a Season Lesson Pass for passholders where you can take up to 15 lessons during the winter; you just choose when to take them.

And all lessons are MAX 5 so you'll have more individualized attention in small groups. At the beginning of each class, we divide the participants based on age and ability and then you are off to enjoy the hill for the 90 minute class.

FLEX lessons

We know scheduling activities for yourself or your children can be a challenge. Sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate for a scheduled lesson, someone is not feeling well, an unplanned activity comes up, life happens. This is why we've created our new FLEX lesson program. You choose how many classes to take and when you want to take them. You can buy 1 lesson (FLEX 1), 2 lessons (FLEX 2) or up to 5 lessons (FLEX 5). And, if you are a passholder, you can even buy a season lesson program (up to 15 lessons). And all FLEX lessons and the season lesson program are fully transferable to anyone in your family profile. For example, buy a FLEX 5 program and one family member can take three lessons and another two, or any combination of family members and number of lessons.

Click the Blue tabs below to see our prices and schedule for our FLEX lesson program. And season passholders save 40% on all FLEX 1 to FLEX 5 lesson programs (passholder lessons do not include the lift ticket or rentals). And an even better deal for passholders is our Season Lesson pass where you can take up to 15 lessons during the winter. You can even share the season lessons with other members of your family who are passholders.

To buy and register for a FLEX lesson program, first create a family profile and sign in. If you've already got a profile, just sign in. Then click to buy and register for lessons.

Parent Tickets

While your children are in lessons, why not ski or ride for the day. Take advantage of our parent ticket and rental price which makes it much more affordable to ski while your children are in their class. Lift tickets are only $18 while ski or snowboard rentals are also only $18. And best of all, the lift ticket and rentals are good for the whole day and for all lifts. Pick yours up at reception when you get your childs' lesson ticket. Note that parent tickets are for Mom and/or Dad only and not for other family members.

Rental Forms

If you have a family profile and are registering online, you no longer need to complete a rental form at the hill. Just be sure that when you create or update your profile, that you have correctly filled out the rental information for each person renting (height, weight, shoe size etc). To update your profile, first sign in, then click your name in the top right of the page and select the Edit profile option. When you arrive at the hill on the first day of classes, your rental form will be printed and you just have to sign it. Rentals include skis, boots, poles and a helmet.

If you are registering over the phone and require rental equipment, then you must complete a rental form when you arrive at Sunridge on the first day of classes.

Registering for FLEX Classes

Once you've purchased a FLEX pack, you can register (and cancel) for any lesson date/time. While you can purchase your FLEX pack anytime, registration opens on Sep. 3, 2019. You can register online up to 48 hours in advance of a lesson date. If you are within the 48 hour window for a class date, you cannot register online but you can call us at 780-449-6555 and we'll try to fit you in.

If something comes up or the weather doesn't look good, you can cancel and pick another date but you must do so 48 hours in advance. Classes cannot be cancelled within the 48 hour window.

All FLEX lessons must be used before the end of the 2019-2020 ski season. There are no refunds for unused lessons and we recommend not leaving unused lessons to the last few weekends as some classes may fill up and we may not be able to fit you in.

The Fine Print
