Deciding where to ski with the kids in tow is often a big decision, as safety should never get in the way of fun. Perfect for the whole family, Snowmass has activities for all ages, from the littlest tikes to teenagers to make your family ski trip a family tradition.

Oh yeah, and did we mention kids 6 and under always ski/snowboard for free?

World-Class Childcare: If their ski legs need a break or they’re getting cold, the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center is a multilevel, 25,000-square-foot childcare facility. The first of it’s kind in the industry; the Treehouse brings the outdoors inside with Colorado-themed playrooms and supervised activities for children ages 8 weeks to 4 years old.

An Ideal Place to Learn: Averaging just 2 people per skiable acre, you won’t have to worry about the pros skiing rings around you as you’re trying to get your footing. You’ll have plenty of space to practice your pizza and French fries if you’re a beginner, and if you want lessons, the Snowmass Ski and Snowboard School is often touted as one of the best in the country.

Other Activities: There’s more than just skiing and boarding on Snowmass Mountain. Head to the new tubing runs at Elk Camp for an exhilarating ride down the hill. The Westin also offers free s’mores and sing-alongs every Monday and Friday for fun by the fire.

Friday Night Fun: Every Friday the Elk Camp at Snowmass is transformed into a nighttime winter wonderland with activities inside and out, from snowbiking and live music to hot chocolate and culinary delights perfect for the whole family to enjoy.
