Aspen Snowmass For All Ages

Being a family-friendly mountain resort means more than just a handful of easy runs where kids can learn to ski. It means a mountain resort that has everyone’s interests in heart (including hard-to-please teens).

We take pride in being a four-mountain resort that creates extraordinary winter vacations for families from around the world.

Ski & Snowboard School

Whether your children are 2 ½ or 17 years old, they share one thing in common: they will enjoy skiing and riding more if they’re having fun. Our acclaimed Ski & Snowboard School offers a wide variety of private and group lessons for kids, all with an emphasis on fun and safety.
Learn more about these lessons — and our two children’s centers — below.

Children's Centers

Operated by our Ski & Snowboard School, these two Children's Centers have raised the bar on what an integrated, learn-to-ski center can be.

Treehouse Kids Adventure Center

Located in the heart of the Snowmass Base Village, this interactive children’s center is the base of operations for all of Ski & Snowboard School’s kids programs at Snowmass. Includes rentals.

The Hideout

The newest addition to the Buttermilk base area offers kids ages 2 ½ to 4 the perfect place to mix play and their first turns in a controlled, safe and unintimidating environment. Also serves as the meeting place for our Ages 5-6 Group Lessons.

Beyond Skiing & Riding
