Mighty Mite Lessons (4 yrs old)

Is your four year old keen to follow their older siblings? Or are they already an expert at sliding and playing in snow and are ready to try out skiing? Our new Mighty Mite program may be just what you are looking for to introduce your 4 year old to skiing. Classes are on our easy-to-use carpet lift and are FUN for the little ones. Small class sizes (max. of 4 per instructor) will ensure that your child has individual attention and you are of course welcome to be close by if they need a little extra support.

Mogul Mite and Meister Lessons (5, 6 yrs old)

Introduce your 5 or 6 year old to skiing in a positive and FUN way! Small class sizes (max. of 5 per instructor) are designed to provide individual attention to your child. Each class is one hour long. The Mites class is for the 5 or 6 year old child just starting out while Meisters is for the more advanced 5 or 6 year old skier.

Junior and Youth/Adult Ski Lessons

Ski classes for Juniors (7 - 13 yrs old) or Youth/Adults(14 and older) are available for all skiing abilities. Each session offers between four and six hours of instruction and classes are divided into the following levels:

Discover: If you've never skied before, then our Discover program is the one to start out with. This program is designed to introduce you to the sport of skiing, get comfortable with the equipment and get you up and down on our Bunny Hill and Porcupine Hill.

Green: This level is offered for those who have skiied before but are still more comfortable on the Bunny Hill. By the end of the class, each skier should be able to ski unassisted on our Bunny Hill and Porcupine Hill, and will be introduced to the TBar and possibly even the chairlift.

Blue: In the blue level, we perfect the snowplow turn and introduce you to the basic parallel turn.

Black: In this level, our instructors will assist you in improving your parallel turns including: balance, pivoting feet, edge control and linked turns.

Red: This level is designed to fine-tune the skills of the expert skier.

Note that if registration in some classes is low (1 or 2 students) then classes may be combined instead of cancelled. For example, if only 1 person is registered in the Red level and a few people in the Black level, then we would combine the two levels into one class.

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 kids are in their class. Lift tickets are only $15 while ski or snowboard rentals are $12. 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 kids lesson ticket.

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 register online that you have correctly filled out the rental information for each person renting (height, weight, shoe size etc). Then, 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.

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.

Make-up Classes

If a class is missed due to illness or a scheduling conflict, we offer one make-up lesson per program. No refunds or credits are given should a class be missed for any reason. Make-up classes are only offered on the first Saturday of each month from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. If you miss more than one class, you can take one make-up lesson and we will give you one guest pass to come skiing on a day of your choice.

PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR ALL MAKE-UP CLASSES. Should you register for a make-up class but don't make it in, we will provide you with a complimentary lift ticket but no other lesson credit will be offered.
