Kids’ Festival Weekend is geared towards kids of every age offering a variety of activities on- and off-the-slopes. From new activities like Cookies & Canvas on Saturday, where your child will create a piece of canvas art while enjoying cookies, to the Kids Tubing Party with music and a bonfire, we’ll have your kids bouncing and bubbling with joy. Make plans to spend the weekend or just the day with us to celebrate everything that is fun about being a kid.
