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 Children's Learning Center 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 - 9am; Pick-up - 12:15pm
    Full Day Camps: Drop off - 9am; Pick-up - 3pm
    Afternoon Half Day Camps: Drop off - 1pm; Pick-up - 4pm
  • Helmets are included in all CLC Packages and Camps.
Helpful Hints for an Easy, Successful Learning Experience:

Parents will need to check their child in and then are responsible for escorting their children through the rental shop, located in the lower level of the Clock Tower Building.
  • For Children's Ski and Board Camps, check in directly at the Children's Learning Center desk at the appropriate registration time to drop off your child for the camp.
  • Water resistant clothing works best. Please avoid knit gloves, jeans and sweatpants.
  • We suggest that you bring an extra change of clothes for the ride home.
  • Label all of your children's belongings to prevent mix-ups.
  • If you are using your own ski or snowboard equipment, it must have metal edges and a retention device to prevent runaway equipment.
  • We suggest that you have any releasable bindings checked by a professional shop before use.
Checklist of Items to Maximize your Child's Comfort and Enjoyment:
  • Quality goggles or sunglasses with maximum UV protection—the snow is bright even on partly cloudy days!
  • Warm clothing, with plenty of layering options so adjustments can be made quickly and easily.
  • Water resistant gloves or mittens—an extra pair is always recommended!
  • Sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 - higher is better!
Vail Resorts Activity Illness Guidelines

The health and safety of our guests is first priority and we take this very seriously. Strong health and safety practices are the heart of our child programs. A key to preventing illness in a group activity setting is to form trusting relationships between parents and instructors around sharing important health information about your child’s condition when they are admitted.

If your child has a fever, sore throat, diarrhea, or is nauseous or vomiting, they will not be accepted for activities. If your child has recently been ill, they must be symptom-free, without the benefit of medications, for 24 hours at US properties.

Each child will be observed for common signs of illness at arrival and throughout the day. A child who is ill upon arrival to the facility will not be admitted. Parents or guardians will be notified to pick up their child immediately, if the child becomes ill during their stay.

A physician’s note stating a child is no longer contagious will be required when a child has healing lesions or other symptoms suggestive of communicable disease.
