Children's Learning Center (Ages 3-7)

The learning destination for children ages 3 to 7, the Children's Learning Center at Powderhorn will make the littlest skiers or snowboarders, and their parents, happy! 

Parents will love the convenient drop off and one-stop shop where they can purchase group or private lessons, equipment rentals and lift tickets all in one place. Kids will love the enthusiastic instructors and the play-based learning.  Children should be toilet trained, interested in snowsports and ready to enjoy spending time outside.
