Deals at Western Ski Resorts for Families

Family skiing can be pricey – but my mom always said, “the best things in life aren’t free.” Or as the Visa card commercial says about ski trips, “lift tickets = $200 each, skiing with your family = priceless”!

Here are some deals to help defray the cost of taking your family skiing.

Book a ski trip to Big Sky Montana with their central reservation office and ask for the kids 10 and under stay and ski free. This is a sweet deal when you are skiing this big mountain resort, and staying in the suite lodging at the Summit – a beautiful on mountain hotel.

Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort is a super friendly south west Colorado ski resort, one of the best family ski resorts in North America. Durango Mountain Resort has a convenient ski base with a small pedestrian village and great lodging, often with ski and stay deal including lessons at Purgatory Lodge just steps from the Purgatory’s fun slopes.

Visit Grand Targhee in Wyoming for three or more nights, and the kids stay free, ski free, and eat free at The Branding Iron restaurant in the skiers village. Grand Targhee is a great resort for families: 500+ inches of snow, friendly people, no crowds, and a small retro base village with fun activities like snowtubing, snow bikes, kids’ happy hour, live music at the Trap Bar for the parents, and sleigh ride dinners.
