This season, don’t let winter weather force you to stay shut indoors with the kids. Embrace the chilly wind and let the snow crunch beneath your feet; soak up some white winter sun and breathe in the brisk, cool air! Explore the plethora of outdoor activities available in the winter – all of which are incredibly kid friendly.
Bryce Resort offers Kinder School – a program that can teach your child aged 4 ½ – 7 how to ski or snowboard. It’s for young, first time or beginner skiers and snowboarders and is something kids enjoy and want to come back for, year after year. That means more time for you to sit back and observe, grab a hot chocolate, or hit the slopes yourself! The instructors are wonderful and ensure that the kids have a fun, memorable time. Hidden beyond the excitement of potentially learning a new sport, Bryce Resort’s Kinder School program makes it abundantly clear that the class also teaches kids lifelong skills like self-confidence and perseverance. Subject to instructor availability, they also offer private lessons if your child is more successful with one-on-one teaching.
Included in the purchase of a Kinder School AM or PM session is a lift ticket, 1 ½ hours of ski or snowboard instruction, and a hot chocolate and snack break while participating in other indoor activities.
So what makes this resort different from the rest? In a previous interview, Doug Grayson of Bryce Resort stated, “I believe the thing that sets Bryce Resort apart from any other ski resort are the multigenerational families that come here. They bring their families, who bring their kids, and their kids’ friends, who bring other families, each who come back for more. We’re known for our skiing. Our ski school director and his son are a perfect example of multigenerational skiing. For the 50 years our existence, they have skied and brought their friends and families. We pride ourselves on the fact that everyone who comes to Bryce is a part of our family. We remember their names and faces, so we can say hi and welcome each and every one of them.”
Parallel to skiing and snowboarding, the resort also offers snow tubing, which, if you haven’t done it, is basically launching yourself at full speed down the side of a mountain in a blow up donut! Once you reach the end, you take advantage of the ski lifts and slowly cascade your way back up the mountain while hundreds of feet in the air. This is the perfect time to relax and let your feet dangle, and provides good bonding time for children as they marvel at the white winter-scape around them.
Located in Mt Jackson, VA, Bryce Resort offers fun family activities like skiing, snowboarding, tubing and ski lift rides right here in the Shenandoah Valley.
