Take your little skiers to [R61R, Blue Mountain], Ontario, where tiny tots ages three through six can go into shorter lessons paired up with crafts and playtime in the Kids Centre.

Tot lesson programs are divided into skiers who are still learning to stop and turn and stopping and those who are already riding the lift. The full day program runs $125, and you can add on ski rentals for $20.

Overnight guests at Blue Mountain with children under 18 months also can request private sitters to come to your rooms. All sitters are trained in first aid and CPR, but to guarantee availability, book a sitter when you make your reservation. Phone (705) 445-0231 ext. 6126, to arrange for sitters.
