Children's Festival Week

« All Events

Kids Ski and Snowboard for Free!

January 12, 2015 - January 16, 2015

All during Children's Festival Week, the little ones can enjoy scavenger hunts, live entertainment, movies, and themed Perfect Turn kids' clinics (this year's theme: Sunday River Trail Names!). After dark, fire dancers, a mad science workshop, and live music will gaurantee a fun-filled time for the entire Kids Laughingfamily. The best part about Children's Festival Week is that kids (ages 4-12) can ski, snowboard, rent, learn, and stay for free when staying three nights or longer. As if that wasn't enough, kids also eat free for lunch and dinner at Camp, Sliders, and the Foggy Goggle. All kids, ages 12 and under, eat free when ordering off the children's menu when accompanied by a paying adult.

Packages start at $129 for accompanying adults. For more information on Children's Festival Week and lodging packages, call 800-543-2754.
