Montana's Big Sky Resort is one good place for kids. Not only do kids 10 years old and under get free lift tickets all season long, but parents who made their lodging reservations through Big Sky Central Reservations can take advantage of an additional kid perk - the Kids Club.
The Kids Club at Big Sky meets daily in the kids-only clubhouse in the Huntley-Shoshone Lobby. Children ages four years old and up can drop in between 4 and 6 p.m. for fun activities while parents get a break to head out for their own après ski entertainment.
Activities at the Kids Club change daily. Most days include games such as musical chairs and Simon Says. Games are indoors or outdoors, based on the day's weather.
Each day's activities are themed with a feature event. Craft days include making masks or decorations as well as concocting homemade slime. Kids design wearable art on Thursdays. The costume box comes out on Fridays for inventing a skit. The Kids Club roasts s'mores and visits the Ski Patrol Rescue Dog Demonstration Saturdays.
Children should come to Kids Club dressed in indoor play clothes with shoes. Parents also need to send along hats, gloves, snow pants, boots, and coats, but the staff requests that children wear regular snow boots rather than ski boots. Call 406-995-5557 for more information on the Kids Club at Big Sky.
