The Mountain Minnies is a winter adventure team for girls ages 3-5. The program is designed to get girls outside and having fun in the snow!  The Mountain Minnies will spend the winter sledding, practicing balance on spooner boards, going on adventure hikes, playing games, drinking hot chocolate and more! Each session is one hour long and will have a different theme each week, incorporating sports, science, fairy tales, and a mandatory hot chocolate break!

Mountain Minnies
$30 Per Session




Each class is one hour long and is $30 per session. Please register early, as each session is capped at 14 Mountain Minnies. You can register online (for a single or multiple sessions).


Parent Participation:

The Mountain Minnies are independent, adventurous, and fierce but let’s face it,  every now and then it’s nice to wave at mom and dad in-between winter adventures. Since each session is only an hour long we recommend that a parent or family member remain on-site. While the Mountain Minnies are off on one of their winter adventures, you’ll be able to have lunch by the fireplace up in the Cedar Lounge Restaurant.



The Mountain Minnies will meet in the Bear Creek room. The closest entrance is on the West side of the lodge. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to meet the instructors and check-in your Mountain Minnie! Please bring a driver’s license or passport for the check-in process. Pick-up will be in the same location as drop-off. Please arrive 5 minutes ahead of time to make sure that you are there waiting for your Mountain Minnie. They will be ready to tell you about their winter adventures!


Should My Mountain Minnie be Potty-Trained?

The short answer is yes! We realize that the Mountain Minnies are young, and that accidents will happen, but keep in mind that the Mountain Minnies will be outside and away from the bathroom for a full hour. We’ll do a bathroom roll call before we head outside but it helps if parents check too!

What happens if the weather isn’t cooperating?

Our number one priority is keeping the Mountain Minnies safe and warm. If it’s too cold outside we will have winter adventures indoors! We will find plenty of adventures inside and have a full list of indoor activities to keep the Mountain Minnies busy!

The Mountain Minnies will be outside for the majority of each session so please plan accordingly. We recommend a warm coat, snow bibs or pants, hat, warm mittens or gloves, boots and warm under clothes. The more layers the better!!!

*Please note that this program does not offer lessons on how to ski or snowboard. Instead the program’s purpose is to teach the building blocks that come before lessons. ie: balancing on spooner boards, riding the magic carpet etc. The goal of the Mountain Minnies is to empower girls in snow sports and get them outside having fun.
