Lesson + Child Care Package

Child Care Package

The Best Way to Get Your Little Ones Started on the Slopes

Available to 3–4 Year Olds

If your littlest ones aren’t quite ready for a full day on the hill, the Lesson + Child Care Package includes lunch, rest time and tons of fun on and off the snow. Small group sizes, playful teaching areas, carpet lifts, and fun-loving kid specialists allow the children to progress at their own pace on the slopes. After the lesson is finished at 12PM, the group heads to the Mammoth Child Care facility for lunch, rest and playtime for the remainder of the day.

Lesson + Child Care Packages are no longer available for the 21/22 winter season. 
Package Benefits

Package Benefits

There are two main benefits to the Lesson + Child Care Package over the regular Age 3-4 Group Lesson:

  1. The Lesson + Child Care Package is a full-day program, where the Group Lesson is only a half-day lesson.

  2. If your child struggles on the hill or no longer wants to participate in the program, they will simply be escorted back to Mammoth Child Care facility for play until pickup at 4PM, allowing parents to continue skiing/riding.
