Stowe Mountain Resort

6* to 14 Year Olds

APRIL 7, 2014 UPDATE: Thanks so much for joining us for this great winter 2013-14. The Stowe Ski and Snowboard School is currently closed for all group lessons and childcare. Private lessons are offered through Sunday April 13 at 50% off the normal rates. Please visit this page for more information. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon!

Our experience has taught us that young people have the highest quality learning experience in a full day program. We'll have them exploring all that Stowe has to offer in no time! The full day Mountain Adventure program caters to skiers and snowboarders ages 6*-14 of all levels. Enroll your child for a day or for one of our season long programs.

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.

Children who are six years old and in first grade have the option to join “the big kids” in Mt Adventure. If your six year old is not yet in first grade, we’ll sign them up for Kids Adventure.
