Families who ski and snowboard together know that, as much fun as those activities are, kids just won't last the whole day on the slopes. Shredding the mountain from first chair to last chair is simply not an option, especially if you're looking for your children to embrace the sport and want to return.

Fact is that families with young skiers and riders need a more all encompassing mountain experience to keep them coming back.
