Children's Programs

Children's Programs are age specific and designed for all abilities.  Whether it is your child’s first time on snow or they are a seasoned snow sport enthusiast, Attitash provides your child with a lesson that is fun in safe, confidence instilling atmosphere.  All programs include a full mountain full day lift ticket and entitle participants to discounted rentals.

All of our Children’s Programs are run out of the Adventure Center, conveniently located adjacent to our beginner terrain known as The Learning Center.  The Learning Center is an area of Attitash serviced by its own set of chair lifts, removed from the normal hustle and bustle of the rest of the resort.
