Free lessons and rentals at Sugar Bowl resort

Posted By: Selma Al-Faqih on March 11, 2010 11:09 am


Our innovative General Admission program is designed to simplify skiing and riding. The basic idea is this – If you have a season pass or a qualifying lift ticket, then you can take a free group lesson of any skill level and / or use our standard rental equipment for no charge whenever “GA” is in effect.

Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s true. Skiers and riders have more fun making turns on snow when they have easy access to the tools and training to improve their skills. General Admission is just another way for us to help you begin or extend your lifetime of joy playing in the mountains.

Some restrictions do apply, so here’s everything you need to know to “Have a GA Day!” at Sugar Bowl.
