First and foremost you want your child’s experience on the slopes to be fun and safe. The following tips can make your child’s adventure on the slopes memorable and enjoyable.

Most children gain confidence quickly and feel success. You can enhance their experience:

  • Have your children view the ski/board lesson on our web site before they come
  • Purchase your child’s lesson session at the Mountain Center building at the ticket window, in plenty of time to register and meet with the instructor before the session starts and tell your child you will meet them there after their session is over.
  • Children are naturally curious and anxious to learn. Try to keep the whole experience as a family adventure.
  • Dress in layers. As your children get warmer, or colder throughout the day, it is easy to adjust the number of layers they are wearing. Cotton clothing will absorb moisture and stay wet (and cold). An additional dry pair of socks, gloves/mittens, etc. will help. Please label their personal items.
    • Medium weight (athletic) wool socks.
    • Long Johns or nylon warm up pants.
    • Winter jacket or parka.
    • Tight knit hat/cap or ski/snowboard approved helmet.*
    • Warm mittens with water resistant cover and a long cuff.
    • Sunglasses or goggles for sunny days.
    • Sunscreen or chapstick.
  • Stop at the North lodge to warm up and have some hot chocolate by the fire.

*Helmet rental is also available in the Kids Park building.

Lids on Kids – visit the NSAA (National Ski Area Association) website to learn more about helmets and children.
