Kids 3 & Under

We are currently updating the information on this page for the 2020/21 ski season. For questions, please reach out to our ticket office staff. Thank you!

We can’t forget about our littlest guest visiting the resort. Whether you are looking for someone to care for your child while you experience the mountain, your little one is ready to hit the slopes, or you want something to do as a family we’ve got you covered.

Lessons for 3 Year Olds

Is your 3 year old as eager to hit the slopes as you are, or maybe more? In our years of experience we have learned that age 3 is a great time to start introducing skiing, IF your child has expressed an interest and is ready. We strive to have a positive experience for all of our guests but particularly for this age group. A skiing experience for this age can differ greatly from that of children just a year older; it varies greatly from one child to the next. While our goal is to begin to develop sliding skills through traditional teaching methods, the child’s interest often dictates progress.

Play Room

Enjoy a fun, relaxing day on the slopes while those not quite ready to ski or ride have a great time, too. Our Playroom provides spacious, age-appropriate areas for children aged six months to five years with creative play areas and quiet facilities for napping. Our playroom professionals will provide loving care and fun activities. Our staff will happily try to accommodate families with special needs with sufficient notice. The Playroom is located in the Arlberg Children’s Center. Visit our resort directions page for its location.

Common Cold Policy ~ Children suffering from a common cold will be assessed on an individual basis.
Factors of consideration include the developmental level of your child in congruence with my ability to limit the spread of germs.  The younger your child, the more difficult it is to keep the spread of germs down. For example: hand to face contact, mouthing of toys, uncontrolled nasal discharge, uncovered sneezing and coughing etc.

(Also when caring for an ill child, the ability to provide high quality care to all of the other children is jeopardized)

A child may return when he or she is free from symptoms and no longer infectious. The child should also be well enough to actively participate throughout the day. In any case of serious or unexplainable illness, a doctor’s medical clearance may be required prior to admission back into care.

If you have any questions concerning this policy and whether your child should attend, please call before bringing your child.
