Award-winning children's ski and snowboard programs for all ages at Smugglers' Notch
Please read the following programming descriptions carefully. Changes have been made to program age eligibility, timing, and meeting locations. Please be aware that as further information is made available by the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), Vermont Ski Areas Association (VSAA), other state and federal agencies, and Smugglers' Notch, programming details may need to be further amended.
All participants and instructors will be required to wear masks when closer than 6 feet. Guests will be able to ride the lifts with their travel group only. When in a lesson if no one from their travel group is present they will ride the chairlift by themselves. Adults can ride the lift with their children while their child is in a lesson, if needed. All participants in Snow Sport University programs will be required to adhere to the Vermont State Travel Guidelines, and will be asked COVID-19 health questions at line up. Participants are also required to fill out a release form online. A link to the release form will be available in late November.
Daily program registration is currently on hold. We will post updated registration information when it is available.
Please note: These Snow Sport University options for you and your family may continue to be updated. For up-to-date information on the following Snow Sport University options, due to Covid-19 restrictions, please check back.
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.
