Summer on the Slopes

Children's Mountain Programs

Here are five other resorts that have great children's programs in the summer.

Beaver Creek Resort, Colorado

(888-830-7669 or
Drama queens- and kings-in-training get to strut their stuff at the four-day Children's Theatre Company workshops (ages 5 to 12). If your child is more outdoorsy, sign him up for the Kids' Day Camp (ages 5 to 12), which includes pony rides, panning-for-gold expeditions, and a ropes course.

Resort at Squaw Creek, California

(800-327-3353 or
This Lake Tahoe retreat offers lots of cool ways to explore the area with your family, from hot-air balloon rides to sailing trips to Jeep tours. The Mountain Buddies program is also a kid-pleaser, with easy nature-trail hikes and wild trips down the 120-foot water slide.

Snowbird, Utah

(800-232-9542 or
At Camp Snowbird (ages 3 to 12), your child can take part in sports, science projects, hikes with picnic lunches, and arts and crafts. But his favorite activity will be a toss-up between riding down the alpine slide or the 1,000-foot-long zip line.

Steamboat Springs, Colorado

(877-237-2628 or
If you can drag your child away from the bungee-jump trampoline, she'll get to try her hand at mountain biking, kayaking, the climbing wall, and other fun outings at the Kids' Adventure Club (ages 3 to 12).

Wintergreen Resort, Virginia

(800-926-3723 or
Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the resort offers plenty of things that you can enjoy together as a family, from big campfires with storytelling to fun hayrides. But you can also sign your children up for the full- and half-day Kids in Action programs (ages 2 to 12).
