Aspen Snowmass’ kids programs and child care are a big reason why Aspen Snowmass has become the resort of choice for countless families.

There are dedicated kids programs, child care, camps and lessons and two world-class facilities — the Treehouse Kids Adventure Center at Snowmass and The Hideout at Buttermilk. Teens love the beginner terrain parks, and 12 and under enjoy on-mountain surprises, which include fun art installations and kids-oriented trails and terrain full of adventure.
