Reservations are now open for the 23/24 winter season!

At Shawnee, kids are our specialty. We offer morning, afternoon and full day programs daily by our specially trained staff. Get your kids on the snow this winter and create great memories on the slopes. Included with all of our children’s programs is an all day lift ticket and rentals for your child, so feel free to play some more before or after their lesson!

Specialty Lessons

Provide your child(ren) with:

  • A good pair of well-fitted, smooth (not bulky), over-the-calf ski socks.
  • Warm, waterproof gloves or mittens (we recommend mittens for small children).
  • Warm hat or better yet a helmet, new this year helmet included with all programs.

Snow pants or ski/snowboard pants are recommended, jeans are not.

Arrive early so you will not be rushed. We advise at least an hour before your lesson time.

Children should eat a good meal before checking in for their lesson.

Please Note: Special needs lessons require advance notice.

Using a chair lift while skiing, snowboarding, or even just sightseeing, is an exceptionally secure mode of transportation. Nonetheless incidents and accidents can happen – especially when people are unaware of loading, riding and unloading procedures. Educate your children about loading, riding and unloading lifts. Be sure to emphasize courteous behavior and utilize these Tips for Responsible Lift Use to get your points across. Slope safety and personal responsibility should be discussed prior to hitting the slopes or using a lift.

Keep in mind, when your child loads a lift chair without you, they may not always be riding with another adult. Remember, it’s your responsibility to know how to use and ride the lift safely as well as your child’s. Having the knowledge and dexterity to use the lift properly will ensure fun for everyone.

The National Ski Areas Association promotes the use of helmets on the slopes. We urge skiers and riders to wear a helmet – but to ski or ride as if they are not wearing a helmet. NSAA views skiing and snowboarding in a controlled and responsible manner – not helmets only – as the primary safety consideration for all skiers and boarders. A skier’s behavior has as much or more to do with the safety of the sport as does any piece of equipment.

In 2002, Lids on Kids debuted as a resource for consumers to learn about helmet use in skiing and snowboarding. This site contains FAQs about helmet use, fit and sizing information, general slope safety information, related articles and games, and testimonials about helmet use from well-known athletes, including US Ski Team members. The site has received nearly 2 million hits since it was created. The tagline, “A Helmet-It’s a Smart Idea,” is printed on posters and promotional cards at resorts nationwide.

No refunds on packages. A credit or date change may be issued for this season only with the flexible ticket add on for $25! All changes must be made at least 48 hours in advance to a SKIwee Customer Service Representative only.
