Mount Sunapee Learning Center

1398 Route 103, Newbury, 03255, NH

Accessible via shuttle from the base lodge, Sunapee’s learning center teems with children on any given day. The dedicated facility is a wonder of engineering, with heated floors and organized cubbies that can accommodate several hundred children without feeling cramped. The adjoining South Peak Learning Area is a perfect playground for young kids to learn their pizzas and French fries, with three side-by-side carpet lifts of different lengths, and three chair lifts to a selection of bunny slopes. There’s even a beginner terrain park with mini whalebacks and other pint-sized features for your budding freestyler.

Kids are accepted for group lessons as young as 4 (and private lessons as young as 3); older kids with more experience are taken onto the mountain proper to learn on intermediate trails there. And for kids 3 and under, the learning center also has a fully staffed daycare center. Half-day and full-day programs are available, as are private lessons. In addition, Sunapee has pioneered a series of unique family lessons that allow the entire family to learn together despite differences in ability; or parents to stand in as observers during kids̢۪ lessons so they can learn techniques to train the little ones after the formal lesson is over.
