Award-winning children's ski and snowboard programs for all ages at Smugglers' Notch

We are the only resort with specially designed kid-friendly programs that divide age groups by small increments, based on the learning capacity and developmental stages of children — with fun at the heart of every program. Our all-day children's programs for ages 3-15 use Flaik GPS as a way to capture on-mountain fun by tracking miles, vertical feet, and trails skied each day. Children 6 weeks to 3 years and not yet ready to ski or ride, can enjoy their day at TREASURES.
