Programs For Tots to Teens

Programs for younger skiers combine personal attention, safety, and instruction along with the opportunity to make new friends on the slope. For older kids and teens, there's halfpipes, terrain parks, snowtoys, night skiing, snowtubing and fun events to enter or watch.

Please note - Programs usually include a lesson & the appropriate lift ticket. Full-day programs generally include lunch. Some full-day programs include rental equipment in the price of the program, but for most programs, there is an additional charge if your child needs a rental ski or snowboard package.
