Ski Nanny
The popular Ski Nanny program at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch supervises the resort’s youngest ski bunnies, ensuring they arrive on time in Beaver Creek Village for group lessons via Village transportation, simultaneously allowing Mom and Dad to make first tracks. Parents should bring their children to Ritz Kids between 7:45 and 8:15 a.m., and we will escort them to their lesson. After a day on the slopes, the Nanny meets children at the Ski School drop-off point in Beaver Creek and escorts them back to the resort for Ritz Kids’ “Munchies and a Movie,” where parents are invited to pick up their children by 6 p.m. Ski Nanny services are offered to children 5 to 12 years old.
