What to Expect

  • Nursery check in (drop-off) is between 8:30am-9:30am in the Whetstone building, which is just downhill of the Silver Queen ski lift. Please, expect first day check-ins to be at least 10 to 15 minutes, and 5 minutes every day thereafter.
  • Snowy Bear check-in is between 8:30-9:00am, to allow for time to prepare for the ski lesson.
  • Half day pick-up is between 12:30pm and 1:00pm. Full day pick-up is at 3:30pm.
  • Please bring a copy of your child’s vaccination records with you to the nursery.
  • Families desiring hourly care must drop their children off during the 8:30 am to 10 am registration time period.
  • We allow one pick-up and one drop-off per day, unfortunately we cannot accommodate mid-day visits as these tend to upset the children.
  • We are happy to accommodate nursing mothers.
  • Feel free to contact Nursery Supervisor at 970.349.2258 or email kporcelli@cbmr.com with any questions you may have.

Childcare Groups

BABY BEARS (2 MONTHS TO 15 MONTHS)
Our baby bear program is staffed with qualified and caring individuals. We offer a two to one infant to attendant ratio.

Our Cuddly Bear program is for non-skiing children. Each day includes organized activities, arts & crafts, games, music, lunch, snacks and quiet/nap time. 

SNOWY BEARS (2 YEARS TO 3 YEARS)
Our snowy bears are toddlers aged 2 to 3 years who want to add an on-snow experience in a one-hour private lesson. Ski equipment is included during lesson time only. Each parent needs to provide the proper clothing for the child to ski such as a hat, goggles and mittens.
