On-Snow Instruction for Toddlers

Our Little Rascals on Snow program introduces kids, ages 2 1/2-3, to the fun of skiing and snowboarding combined with all-day child care at our TREASURES child care center. Kids learn about the equipment through exploration and play.

We've found a way to teach children as young as 2 1/2 years old, and still in diapers, to love the sport of skiing as much as we do. The secret? Let them play with the equipment until their curiosity is piqued. Then, once enticed, we head out onto the snow to start sliding under careful supervision, always finishing while they are still interested and always concluding on a positive note.

Because continuity and familiarity are key with this age group, the specially trained caregivers that play with your child and take care of their needs indoors at TREASURES will also serve as the instructors who guide your child through the Little Rascals learning experience on skis.

Kids in this program enjoy the fun and ease of use of a Wonder Carpet conveyor lift, conveniently located right out the back door of TREASURES. Children receive individualized lessons specific for each child's comfort and ability. Each week, children enrolled in Little Rascals on Snow showcase their new skills on a small course. After the big debut, families enjoy cookies and hot chocolate together as part of this special event.

The Little Rascals on Snow program meets at TREASURES Child Care Center. Please arrive at TREASURES between 8:30 am and 9:30 am, so your child can be outfitted with their ski equipment at TREASURES - no visit to the rental shop necessary!
