|Snow Explorers - outdoor snow play & indoor fun zone||N/A||N/A|
|Late Pick Up Fee||N/A||N/A|
Our Snow Explorers program combines an introduction to skiing, playing in the snow and childcare. This is a great program designed specifically for the three year old not quite ready for a traditional Snowsports lesson. (We will take kids younger than three on a case by case basis - contact Mt. Bachelor Childcare for more information.)
A skier requires balance, and a certain amount of strength and technical control. To help kids with skills needed, we have the indoor "Fun Zone" active play area, with games and music, balance beam and small incline for practicing walking with skis. Since kids love to play in the snow, we will have outdoor time to practice gliding on our strap on skis or just simply make a snowman and snow angels.
Snow Explorers is geared towards teaching young children some descriptions used by ski instructors, such as "make your pizza" or "french fries" (wedge, glide). We want children to love and feel comfortable in the snow, as well as have a story to tell from their mountain vacation! Snow Explorers runs from 10:30 a.m. til 11:30 a.m. please arrive no later than 10:00 a.m.
Be sure to dress your child in proper mountain/ski gear-waterproof/water resistant snow pants and coat, mittens and snow boots. Goggles help protect eyes and enhance visibility in all kinds of weather and are a must. Goggles can be purchased at the mountain.
Full day includes: All day childcare, snacks, outdoor snow play with strap on skis and indoors dry land practice in the "Fun Zone". Lunch is available for an extra $7.

Bachelor Childcare in the lower level of West Village Lodge.
