The largest of the four Aspen area ski mountains, Snowmass is one of the most family-friendly mountains around with all kids skiing free up to age seven. This Aspen hot spot comes in at over 3,300 acres of terrain with 91 trails of groomies, halfpipes, terrain parks and more. Families flock here for their state-of-the-art Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center, a gigantic childcare facility for kids ages 8 weeks to four years old. With a nurse on staff and themed rooms, this is where your kids will get introduced to skiing. And, once your snow bunny turns two they’re welcome to enroll in Snowmass’ Cubs on Skis program, a mix of early childhood education and skiing based out of this nature-themed adventure center.
Good to Know:
The Treehouse at Snowmass isn’t the only spot your kid will love. Pay a visit to nearby Buttermilk Mountain to experience The Hideout, a brand new 7,500 square foot facility that opened in December 2014 just for kids. Don’t blame your littles if they forget they’re in the mountains and get lost in The Hideout’s custom-designed play features like a lookout tower and interactive play room.
