Snow Explorers

Our NEW 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 Otter Mountain 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!

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 $5.

Guest Comment

My name is Elizabeth and we recently spent the weekend at Mt bachelor and had a fabulous time, in part because our son, Maxwell, was so well cared for at the day care facility. We found the staff to be wonderful and enthusiastic and will definitely use this service again and again! Several of our friends had their kids there too and were just as impressed as we were! Thank you!

Sincerely,
Elizabeth H.
