In Snowmass, we’re a family destination with kid-friendly activities of all kinds available daily, and special kid-centric events throughout the winter. Here’s a list of all the best activities kids can take advantage of while visiting Snowmass: 

Off Mountain

  • Splash around at the outdoor heated pool.
  • Looking for a wide open space to play in the snow? The field at the Rec Center is the perfect place to have a snowball fight or build a snowman.
  • Take a stroll down Labrador Lane, the walking (and dog-friendly!) hard-packed cross country skiing trail at the Snowmass Club.

  • Head to the Snowmass Village Ice Rink for figure skating practice or a pick-up hockey game.

Base Village:

On Mountain
