What to pack*: Lunch, snacks, bottles, (frozen breast milk is fine…if formula – pre-mixed, ready to feed is preferred), pre-filled sippy cup, diapers, wipes, spare set of clothing and any “comfort items” (such as a pacifier, special blanket or toy). Lunch and snacks are provided; free of charge, for babies who can eat what is on the menu for the older kids for the day. (i.e. chicken nuggets, pizza, macaroni & cheese along with veggies and fruit.)

*Please label all bottles, food containers, cups, pacifiers, etc. Pre-labeling your child’s belongings will expedite the check-in process and get you “out on the hill” sooner!

Outside time: Typically, we do not take this age group outside due to the cold winter temperatures. On a warm spring day, we may take the toddlers on a walk or in a stroller.

Visiting or “checking in” on my baby:  unless you are nursing, we recommend parents call versus checking in. Often times, babies do not understand that you are “just visiting.” If your baby had a difficult time settling in during morning drop off, a mid day visit then another good bye may upset your child all over again. Alternatively, we recommend you calling as often as you like, or leave your cell # for our staff to contact you based on the criteria you set forth.   

Availability: Infant/toddler care may not be available every day at both locations. Our infant care spaces are very limited and sell out quickly!  Call ahead to confirm availability and remember,  you will SAVE BIG by reserving at least 2 days in advance. To purchase BOOK ONLINE or call  800.MAMMOTH / 800.626.6684.

All Day Ski or Snowboard Lesson/Child Care Combo


+Pioneers – Age 3-4 years

Whether they are new to the slopes or looking to take on new terrain, group lessons are a great way for kids of all ability levels to develop skills for a lifetime of fun on the slopes while parents spend the full day exploring their own terrain. Our friendly instructors are extremely knowledgeable and tons of fun, so kids will progress quickly and have a great time doing it! Small group sizes, playful teaching areas, carpet lifts and fun loving kids specialists allow 3-4 year old Pioneers to progress at their own pace from just getting started to skiing and riding on the slopes.

After your little one is finished on the slopes when the lesson ends at noon,  he or she will be escorted to Mammoth Child Care where they can have lunch, rest and/or play the remainder of the day.

One is the benefit of a full day program - 8:00a.m. – 4:00p.m. The second benefit is that the parent will not be notified to pick up their child if he/she no longer wishes to participate in the lesson.
