What are the best ski deals for families right now? There are some good ones that are time limited, so it may be time to get your passes soon. Don’t delay, the best deals are in the Spring when these areas are trying to entice you to purchase for the 2016-17 ski season.
Rocky Mountain Super Pass+*
Included: Copper Mountain, Winter Park and Eldora, and days at Steamboat, Crested Butte and some others
Cost: $499/adult, $409/teen, $299/child [The price of these passes are only guaranteed through April 5, 2016.]
KIDS SKI FREE! One free child pass [12 & under] with the purchase of an adult RMSP and RMSP+ until June 1, 2016.
*You can purchase the regular Rocky Mountain Super Pass, but it’s the same price as the RMSP+, so I think it’s a clear decision.
This is a new one to me, but might be attractive to some adventurous, traveling families. The Mountain Collective gives you 2 free passes to 12 areas in the United States so 24 days of skiing if you can make it to all locations. Think Alta, Whistler/Blackcomb, Taos, and many more! The only local areas are those in Aspen. But if you are ready to go to the snow, this pass may be a fun one to add to your list.
KIDS SKI FREE! Their child pass is $1 when you purchase an adult pass [limited time].
Vail Resorts/Epic School Kids
The Epic Pass products are on sale. Again this year they will be offering their Epic School Kids program which offers children through 5th grade a pass that allowed them to ski free for 4 days at Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone and Breckenridge. Not too bad! Time to get on this one as this is a limited time offer and there were lots of families sad about not jumping on this one earlier!
The other thing to consider is adults need to get passes that align with these free kids’ passes, so you want to look at the whole package.
KIDS SKI FREE! 4 free days at Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone and Breckenridge
