Arlberg Children Center

Cranmore Named #2 in the East for Family Programs by Ski Magazine!

The Arlberg Children’s Center facilities are reserved for kids enrolled in Cranmore’s KidsRule Mountain Camps, and home to the Cranmore Play Room for Young Children. Here families enjoy unparalleled convenience as the Center has its own ticketing and reservation center, rental services for Kids Rule camp and private lessons, and lesson drop off areas. Its location next to Beginner Basin and the C-More double chairlift give our guests a great selection of learning terrain, featuring Terrain Based Learning.  

Directly across from the Center is the C-more Double Chairlift. The Chairlift services a secluded area of beginner-only terrain. With Penguin themed trail names, this area provides beginners with gently sloping trails geared towards learning, without the distraction of more advanced skiers sharing the slopes. It is adjacent to the Beginner Basin novice area, featuring terrain based learning elements and two carpet style lifts, making it simple for those learning to ski and ride to get on and off a lift and practice learning and turning.

How to Reserve Your Child’s Snowsports Lessons:

Popular dates often sell out so we strongly suggest reservations to avoid disappointment. Online reservations are the most convenient way to book in advance.

ONLINE - You can book your reservations online in advance and save $20 on KidsRule in our estore up until midnight the day before your arrival.

PHONE - You can call to make reservations at 1-800-SUN-N-SKI. Our reservationists are available extended hours during peak times.

IN PERSON -You can stop by the Arlberg Children’s Center the evening before your arrival to make a reservation, get fitted for rental equipment and purchase lift tickets for the entire family. This option is only available during peak periods (Christmas week, Martin Luther King weekend, and President's week). Tickets may be picked up anytime the day prior but rental fitting only takes place after 4pm. This is a great option even for those with advance reservations so you are ready to go the day of the lesson.

During Vacation periods, the Children's Center has extended hours, so you can register or pick up equipment the night before the lesson. Next day equipment rental is available for pick up after 4pm. 

Extended Hours:
December 26th-31st: 8am-7pm
January 18th-20th: 8am-7pm
February 16th-23rd: 8am-7pm

Directions to the Children's Center:

As you approach Cranmore on Skimobile Road, turn left on Old Bartlett Road then take your third right onto North Chair Road. Look for directional signage pointing you to the Center. All services related to your child's camp will take place in this one building – tickets, rentals, etc. Other family members may also purchase tickets or redeem online purchases there as well for convenience. Please note that the area in front of the Center is for drop off only – no long term parking. Note that the Arlberg Children's Center is used exclusively for children's programs. For the safety and security of our campers, the building is not available for public use.
