5 Activities for Children under 5 at Snow Mountain Ranch

By Ani Sultan

Want to take a family vacation? Snow Mountain Ranch is just the place to go! Here we have activities for the whole family – even for children under age five!

Take a look at what’s available:

The Craft Shop

The craft shop is a fun place for the whole family. It doesn’t matter how old or artistic you are, because there is something for everyone. Activities consist of painting your own pottery, glass fusion, mosaics, copper enamel, wood burning, jewelry making, leather stamping, tie dye, and model kits. It is a fun way for kids to express themselves – and bring home a unique souvenir!

Mountain Biking

Whether you live on the biking trails or you don’t even know what they look like, mountain biking is available for anyone! At Snow Mountain Ranch there are miles of bike trails. A person of any age can participate, and the best part is children under age five ride for free!

Kids of all ages love this one-of-a-kind experience! This winter activity can be enjoyed in the spring, summer and fall! Only a few tubing hills like this exist in the United States. People of all ages can participate, but children under six years of age must ride with an adult.

Summer Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is a spectacular activity at Snow Mountain Ranch. Anyone can ride, but children under five must ride with a parent. There are rides that range from one to four hours, or choose a breakfast ride or dinner ride!


Snow Mountain Ranch offers a 25-yard indoor swimming pool that the whole family can use together. Kids and parents can swim laps, swim recreationally, or enjoy the sauna. It is open to all members and guests at no extra charge.
