Child Care

Whether they’re just crawling or tearing it up on the slopes, kids ages 6 weeks to 6 years will laugh their way through a day filled with hands-on learning and fun. Centrally located in The Clock Tower building of the Main Base Area, Mount Snow Child Care is a welcoming, state-licensed facility that provides individual playrooms full of enriching age appropriate activities.  Also part of our childcare facility is our Cub Camp program giving three-year-olds the best of both worlds – skiing & playing! Click here to view our Cub Camp page.
