Little Rascals on Snow P.I.P. Sessions (Parent-Instructor-Partnership)

On-Snow Instruction for Toddlers

Our Little Rascals on Snow P.I.P. Session (Parent-Instructor-Partnership) introduces 2 1/2-3 year olds to the fun of skiing and snowboarding. Kids learn about the equipment through exploration and play. Parents help with the basic needs of their little skier/rider, while instructors offer instruction and tips for parents to continue the learning process together.

At Smugglers’ Notch Resort, children as young as 2½ can learn how to ski or snowboard in an introductory program. In this video, TREASURES director Shelly Schaffer offers words of wisdom as well as clothing tips to parents who are eager to introduce their young child to skiing.

Smugglers' - Dressing for Success

Our young Smugglers' will enjoy this introduction to skiing and riding at our specially designed Tree House and snow playground. One adult is included in the price of this fun 2 hour session where instructors will teach your child while teaching you how to keep the learning experience fun!
