Our Kids Programs
Mad River Mountain offers several programs designed to introduce and progressively teach the sports of skiing and snowboarding to your children, all while ensuring a fun time on the slopes every day! Our long-running Kids Adventure Place is just the beginning – Mad River offers the opportunity to start even earlier with our new Mommy & Me Learn to Ski program offered Wednesday mornings, or let them graduate to the next level in the weekly Mountain Explorer’s Club beginning in January.
