Stowe Mountain Resort’s Children’s Programs are all about…

SAFETY, FUN, AND LEARNING!

It’s easy to relax and enjoy your time at Stowe when you know they’re in good hands!

Stowe’s Children’s Programs are headquartered at Spruce Peak, where the broad and gentle runs make a great environment for learning. Advanced skiers and riders explore terrain that has given Stowe it’s reputation as the best in the East.  The philosophy of our children’s programming is to build self-esteem and a life-long passion for winter sports, while providing a safe and fun learning environment.  We at Stowe’s Ski & Snowboard School look forward to sharing our love for winter and enthusiasm for teaching with your children.

Again this winter, we will be based out of our new world-class Adventure Center!  With soaring spaces and massive wooden beams, the architecture was inspired by the outdoors. One step inside and you’ll quickly realize this is the home of adventure.

Our program options are:

Protective Helmets

The use of helmets is strongly recommended.  Ski and Snowboard School participants under age 18 must wear a winter sport protective helmet.  While helmets may reduce or mitigate the severity of some head injuries, their use does not guarantee safety and will not prevent certain injuries.  Rental helmets are available at our children’s ski school locations for your convenience.
