Winter Groups

Plan Your Winter Outing

Let us create a special program for your group and maximize the fun. We make it easy for any size group to enjoy a day (or more) of great skiing and riding at Mount Sunapee. No two groups are alike so let us customize your day with all the details and ensure every member of your group feels like a part of our family.

For a group of 20 or more, book your trip in advance with our Sales Office to qualify for our exclusive group rates. For every 25 tickets your group purchases, you get a free ticket.
