It’s never too late to learn a new sport, and embrace all that Maine has to offer in winter. New for 2019, Sunday River will host Learn to Ski or Snowboard Weekends March 1-3 and March 15-17 for ages 13 and up.
Starting at $59, the one-day Learn to Ski or Snowboard package includes a three-hour group lesson, equipment, and beginner lift ticket through the SnowSports School.
The two-day package is $139 and includes an initial three-hour lesson on your first day and 90-minute lesson on the second day, rental equipment, and a beginner lift ticket for each day of skiing or riding on the mountain.
Beginners can also add $100 upgrade onto their package to come back and take two additional lessons any time for up to a year after the purchase date.
The Learn to Ski or Snowboard Weekend also includes special first timer deals and perks all weekend long. Friday, March 1 and Friday, March 15, participants can start their weekend off by getting to know other newcomers at the First Timer’s Après-Ski Social in the Discovery Center at South Ridge.
Those who sign up for a lesson can also get 20 percent off on lodging for one, two, or three-night stays, and can save $100 on a purchase of select skis, snowboards, boots, and bindings from Sunday River Sports.
Advanced reservations are required to take advantage of the deals, and can be made by calling 207-824-5959.
