Tips for Parents

Things to Remember about our Children's Programs:

  • A parent or guardian must be on Liberty Mountain Resort property at all times while a child is enrolled in any Kids Academy program.
  • For the children's safety, parents and relatives are not allowed past the Children's Learning Center desk.
  • Please remember that the length of any children's lesson is based on the attention span and physical abilities of the child. The ultimate goal is to develop a lasting memory and enjoyment of the entire ski or snowboard experience.

When dropping off or picking up your child, please be prompt:

  • Morning Half Day Camps: Drop off - 9 a.m.; Pick-up - 12:15 p.m.
