Parental Escort Policy - Big Snow American Dream

Parental Escort Policy

We welcome all youth to Big SNOW and American Dream; however, all guests to Big SNOW must adhere to the American Dream Parental Escort Policies. This means that on all evenings, youth under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older from 4 p.m. until close. Additional details on the American Dream Parental Escort Policy can be found here:

As a parent or guardian, it is extremely important that you understand the inherent risks and dangers that come along with letting your child participate in the activities at Big SNOW. It is your decision to allow your child to participate in these activities offered at Big SNOW.

We strongly encourage parents and/or guardians to monitor their children at all times while at Big SNOW. If you do not wish to participate in the activities yourself, Spectator Passes may be purchased so you can accompany your child within the facility. Please note that proper footwear is required in the cold space as you will encounter cold temperatures, ice and snow.

It is the duty of the parent or guardian to make sure the child is aware of the inherent risks associated with the activities at Big SNOW.

      • Is your child aware of the dangers associated with riding a ski lift?
      • Can your child adhere to the Skier Responsibility Code?
      • Would your child benefit from a lesson?

NJ state law requires that all children under the age of 18 wear a helmet while skiing, snowboarding and riding our lifts. It is the Parents or Guardians responsibility for ensuring their children’s use of helmets at all times while participating in the activities at Big SNOW.

Big SNOW values the safety of its little skiers and riders and we want to make sure Parents, Guardians AND the children are aware of the inherent dangers associated with skiing and snowboarding. If you have any questions regarding the safety of your child, please do not hesitate to ask a Big SNOW team member.

We hope you enjoy your visit at Big SNOW.

Big SNOW requires that all guest entering the Snow Park and Rental Area have a valid ticket. It is our recommendation that all children under the age of 12 be escorted by a parent or guardian while within Big SNOW.
