Deals at Western Ski Resorts for Families
Family skiing can be pricy - but as my mom always said, "the best things in
life aren't free." Or as the Visa card commercial says about the expensive
ski trip, "lift tickets = $100 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 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 for
under $99 a night 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 bas village with fun
activities like snowtubing, snowbikes, kids' happy hour, live music at the
Trap Bar for the parents, and sleigh ride dinners.
In Wyoming, Jackson Hole is offering
$299 airfare for a limited time if you book three or more nights
