Family Activities Included in Ski.com Prize Package
This is the place to start your kids on a lifelong love affair with snowsports! The varied terrain is easy enough for the beginner, challenging enough for the fast and fearless, and offers plenty of middle-of-the-road turf in between. Your lift ticket allows you to ski four mountains connected by a free skier shuttle.
This Dream Big Ski Vacation includes two (2) adult and two (2) children's lift tickets (ages 2.5 – 12 years old) for three (3) days, valid at all four Aspen/Snowmass mountains: Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk.
Snowmass has excellent learning programs for toddlers and preschoolers and a highly regarded Aspen/Snowmass Ski & Snowboard School for kids and teens. Enroll your children ages 2.5-12 in two full days of ski or snowboard lessons (children are taught in age-appropriate group lessons) while you enjoy the slopes and some adventure time together. On the third day of your ski vacation, hit the slopes with the kids and see how much they’ve learned!
The Dream Big Ski Vacation also includes three (3) days of ski or snowboard equipment rentals for two adults and two children. After a good night’s sleep, you can arrive early at the Snowmass Equipment Rental Shop, where experts will fit your family for skis or snowboards, boots, and any necessary gear and helmets.
After three days on the slopes you’ll be ready for a day off with someone (or some thing!) to do all the work of getting around! Your family can spend a day together exploring the terrain on an unforgettable two-hour Krabloonik Dog Sled Ride through the pristine Snowmass/Aspen wilderness. Each sled, which can carry two people, is pulled by 10 Alaskan sled dogs and guided by an experienced musher. The sled dogs are born and bred to run and they love the thrill of the run just as much as the riders do. Your family can choose between three departures: The morning and afternoon dog sled ride includes a three-course gourmet lunch served in a private room at the world-class Krabloonik Restaurant. The twilight dinner ride is an excursion through a still, snowy Snowmass wonderland and includes a four-course dinner at the Krabloonik Restaurant.
And thanks to Ski.com, there’s still time to explore all that downtown Aspen has to offer, including art galleries, special boutiques and some of the best ice cream this side of the Rockies.
