The month of March means longer days and plenty of snow at ski resorts throughout New England.
The three KidsRule resorts continue their family focus this March with fun family events and great values. KidsRule is an innovative new snow sports school offered at Massachusetts’ Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, New Hampshire’s Cranmore Mountain Resort, and Vermont’s Bromley Mountain Resort.
“Trail counts are high, the sun is higher in the sky and the days are longer and warmer. March is a great time to be outdoors with your family,” says KidsRule program founder, Brian Fairbank.
March is considered by many snowfans to be the best month of the year, and the three mountains of the KidsRule Mountain Camps are hosting a variety of kid-friendly events to make the most of it.

KidsRule Mountain Camps
With a special emphasis on learning terrain, the KidsRule mountains not only offer a wide variety of kid-friendly slopes in the region, but they offer a new approach – one based on safety, learning life long techniques, and helping each child learn at their own pace. KidsRule Mountain Camps combine the best practices of more than 120 years of teaching experience to offer a fresh approach to instruction, one where the skills and confidence go as deep as the fun and laughter.
KidsRule Mountain Camps will unite the best techniques of all three mountains, including distinct safety features, specially trained instructors, dedicated learning facilities, and consumer-focused communications to provide children and their parents a new kind of mountain experience. http://kidsrulecamps.com/
