The Sonnenalp Kids Club is our complimentary recreation program for children.
Unique in the Vail area, the Sonnenalp Kids Club offers structured activities and adventures for kids under the supervision of our Guest Activities Coordinator.Most programs take place in the Kids Club, a dedicated room full of toys and art supplies, located at the hotel. Other activities, like guided hikes on Vail Mountain or indoor rock climbing at the Vail Athletic Club, get the kids active and moving outside of the hotel.
The Sonnenalp Kids Club is open to children 3 years of age (must be potty trained) up to 12 years. This program is offered at no additional cost to our guests, except when additional lift passes or tickets are required.
Kids Club activities are offered year-round, with daily activities during the peak summer and winter months and a modified schedule of activities in the spring and fall seasons.
