During this annual week-long event, parents who book for two or more nights earn free lift tickets, lodging, and lessons for their kids between the ages of 4 and 12 years old . Guests who choose to stay at either Grand Resort Hotel will also score free breakfast.

Festivities kick off as soon as families walk through the door thanks to a s’mores welcome during check-in at either Grand Resort Hotel.

During the day, Perfect Turn Ski and Snowboard School offers classes from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. that focus on fun in the snow and perfecting turns. To keep classes interesting lessons revolve around themes like a Mexican Fiesta Day, Super Hero Day, and Western Round Up Day.

The fun continues well after class ends thanks to evening events, including fireworks, a snow tubing and ice skating extravaganza, pizza and movie nights, as well as several Black Diamond Entertainment Shows featuring Strolling Magic by Marcus Almodarr Steelgrave, the Davey the Clown Show, and Fire Dancer Diane Kibbin.
