Welcome to the Blazer community at Sugarbush! Generations of devoted skiers and their families have found a home in the Blazer program over the decades, and there still is no better way for Sugarbush kids to grow into all-mountain skiers here in New England’s best winter playground.

A mountain adventure for young skiers, Mini Blazers work with the same kids and coaches each weekend to make skiing at Sugarbush a major component of growing up with the mountains as a playground. Our highly skilled and carefully trained instructors promote a fun and safe environment in which to experience snow-filled adventures and to gain the skills necessary to ski with confidence.


Mini Blazers is sold out for the season. Please check out the Schoolhouse 18 Day Pass to our daily Mini Bear program as an alternative.

Mini Blazers meet on snow every Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, January 1 to March 20, 2022. Participants are encouraged to attend every session to maximize fun, learning, stamina building, and group consistency.

Mini Blazers must be linking turns with confidence on green terrain access off of chair lifts and be able to ride a chair lift unassisted. Skiers should be moving with the terrain and not skiing defensively in a wedge. Mini Blazer snowboarding groups may be available depending on demand- please contact us if interested.

Groups are typically formed during the first two weekends. Participants are urged to attend so that our coaches can establish groups that work well together and have a blast for the remainder of the season.

All Mini Blazers must have an Ikon Pass or Sugarbush Premium Pass. Mini Blazers includes a NASTAR Race Arena season pass for use on program weekends.
