Snoventures is a fabulous place for families and those new to the mountain atmosphere. In a zone specifically set up for beginners, Snoventures offers miniature snowmobiles, tubing, beginning skiing and a private lodge complete with a fire pit and hot chocolate. The miniature snowmobiles are made especially for the kiddos ages 6 to 12, with a maximum weight of 100 pounds and maximum height of 40 inches (be sure to bring required snow footwear and protective eye wear). The two different sizes of tubes are for both adults and kids. There's also a carpet-style escalator that takes people up to the top, making tubing that much easier. There is a small chair lift in the area that is perfect for those wanting to learn the ropes of skiing as well. Snoventures is set aside to the east of the Village at Squaw Valley. This makes the adventure of stepping on the snow a little less intimidating for the first-timer in comparison to having to do those first steps on frozen ground in front of the massive crowds that tend to be at the ski area.
