Stowe Mountain Resort

3 Year Olds

Whether you are here for a day or for the season, we have a great program for your 3 Year Old. These skiers and riders have their own indoor space separate from the big kids but the majority of their time is spent outside on the snow. Class ratios are kept low to ensure a safe sensitive learning experience.

A WORD ABOUT FOOD & ALLERGIES:  All Children’s Program Facilities are nut-free.  We do our best to accommodate all dietary needs, however, our kitchen has 6 of the 8 major food allergens.  In the event of a food allergy, please know that the most successful option for your child is to pack your child’s lunch; ALL ITEMS MUST BE NUT-FREE AND PRE-PACKAGED WITH INGREDIENT LABELS, as we may need to verify individual ingredients.


3 Ski & Ride Adventure
This is a full day program for 3 year old skiers and riders. Is this the first time for your 3 year old? We’ll give them a FUN introduction to skiing or snowboarding with no pressure.  Is your 3 year old already riding a chairlift? Fantastic!

3 Year Old Insider Tips for a Great Day…     

  • Secure rental equipment prior to lesson time. Our rental shop at Spruce Peak opens at 8:00am.
  • Please inform us of any special needs that your child may have so that we may address them appropriately. Staff cannot administer any medications.
  • For our 3 Ski Adventure program, drop off is at the 3 Ski Center. Doors open at 8:30, check-in 9:00am. Arrive with your child, their equipment and all their ski gear. Label everything and don’t forget to apply sunscreen. Pick up is at 3:30pm. We do not require that children wear helmets, but recommend it.
  • For CubBusters, drop off is at the 3 Ski Center at 8:30 sharp. Arrive with your child, their equipment and all their ski gear. Label everything and don’t forget to apply sunscreen. Pick up is at 2:30pm. We do not require that children wear helmets, but recommend it.

Remember that young children have trouble with separation especially in a new place! Please allow time to stay and help your child adjust. We encourage you to talk about their FUN lesson ahead of time so they can prepare for the transition. Explain where you will be and that you will be back to see how great they did! Parents are encouraged to check in on the lesson, but be mindful that this can be disruptive and raise anxieties again. We recommend a phone call.
