Mountain ExplorersKids get expert, caring instruction so they learn quickly and gain confidence. Mount Sunapee features the South Peak beginner area complete with five lifts servicing 13 trails. This separate mini-mountain area is excellent for learning, allowing beginners to progress in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

Explorers is a program designed for 8-12 year olds. The program is offered either half- or full-day and comes with an all-mountain lift ticket, lesson(s) and rentals. Full-day is 4 hours of lessons (Two 2-hour sessions) and includes lunch; half-day is one 2-hour lesson (does not include lunch).
