Three Children Seasonal Program

Kid's Year-Long Programs

Enroll your child  in one of the many season-long ski programs offered at Cranmore Mountain Resort

Space is limited for all programs - reserve online here.

Cranmore seasonal programs promise a winter-long journey of learning, fun, and friendship for kids ages 5 and up, in a safe environment.  There are programs for kids who are skiing all green terrain top to bottom at Cranmore, unassisted, independently controlling their speed by turn shape, and can ride the chairlift safely with other children.  Choose the one that is right for your child and watch as the experience of becoming a truly skilled skier unfolds, step by step, all winter long.  Our goal is to develop the passion for sliding on snow for a lifetime of fun with family and friends.

Children just starting to ski this season should consider one of our Private Lesson options designed for your child's age and independence, or, KidsRule Mountain Camps for children ages 7 to 14.

Rattlesnakes - Kids ages 5 -14

From basic novice skills to proficient all mountain skiers

Rattlesnakes is a skill development program that builds the basics, starting with safety. Then fundamental capabilities are established, so children can develop dynamic skiing skills and an expanding awareness of the mountain environment. Social interaction, fun, and togetherness happen as a natural part of the learning environment. Children must be able to ski all green terrain top to bottom at Cranmore, unassisted, independently controlling their speed by turn shape, and can ride the chairlift safely with other children. Groups are split by age, ability, and independence on the mountain.

As children master advanced skills, the program will focus on mastering all types of terrain including racecourses, terrain parks, moguls, glades, and anything else we can find.  Children will become strong all-mountain skiers before progressing to the racecourse, terrain park, or other varying terrain. This program develops strong skills in a fun but challenging environment. Once children have developed strong basic skiing skills, our coaches will begin to introduce and focus on specific goals.
