  • Family Skiing Snowbarding Preparation at Snowmass

Getting the Family Ready for the Slopes

Besides being a mountain where families can find satisfying skiing and snowboarding meeting all family members’ tastes in one place, Snowmass also makes family vacations as hassle-free as possible. When your family plans a trip to Snowmass, you can be sure you’ll get the most out of your day on slopes.

You best resource for convenient ski and snowboard rentals will be Ski Butlers. Make your equipment reservations online, and experienced Snowmass ski rental technicians bring the equipment right to your room where they do all the fitting onsite. They’ll bring all the top-rated equipment from Rossignol that your entire family will need, including accessories!

Not only will you avoid having to occupy the kids (to avoid impatient meltdowns) while waiting in Snowmass ski rental shop lines, Snowmass also provides easy locations for family meetups.  And don’t forget the wealth of Base Village activities should anyone need a break from the slopes, or want to play for apres.  Snowmass Base Village is an absolute hub of family-friendly activity, and it’s easily accessible via many of the runs.
