Kids Club

The Sonnenalp Kids Club is our recreation program for children.
Please see schedule for hours of availability
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, get the kids active and moving outside of the hotel.
