This is our list of the Best Family Ski Resorts.
In considering family friendly ski resorts several factors come to mind. The Price, it needs to be affordable. Things to do, kids will not want to ski all the time. Plenty of easy runs, besides just the bunny hill. So, you are looking for a resort with lots to do, with affordable packages and with plenty of green and blue runs.
If lessons are going to be required, that will be another consideration. Since most ski resorts have lessons for children, and most have qualified instructors, just what is it you are looking for? The package, you are looking for a package that works into your budget. Does the half day ski school price include all the rental equipment and lift tickets? Or will they cost extra? What are the costs for additional children, or possibly an adult and child rate? Would you be better off hiring one private instructor to go out with your entire family for the whole day? That's an option not everyone thinks of.
Something else to look for when comparing different resort are the words "kids free". Many resorts offer discounts of one kind or another for kids. It could be buy one adult ticket and one child skis free. Or free kids rental with the purchase of one lift ticket. You get the idea, look for resorts that offer discounts for kids. There are plenty of them out there.
Here are a few resorts and what the experts say about their overall family ski value.
- Steamboat Springs - Balanced overall costs, nothing out of line so it's a good value.
- Park City - The ski school is to expensive driving up the overall cost.
- Taos - It could be the best value, but it's not, lodging is to expensive.
- Big Sky - Great value - the kids under 10 ski free deal really helps.
- Winter Park - Has the lowest priced ski school, another good value.
When looking for the best family ski resort, and when comparing prices, here are a few more things to consider that might help keep the costs down.
If you will be flying to the resort look for ones that offer a shuttle service to the airport, this can save a considerable amount over the price of a rental car. When picking a room, consider one with kitchen, and then use it. Food costs add up fast, especially when eating out for every meal. Some of your meals could be prepared in your room for a considerable savings.
Do you really need full day lift passes? Consider skiing half days and making use of the resorts less expensive activities the rest of the day. Seek out lift ticket discounts. Resorts are actively trying to get customers and good deals are out there. Look for lift ticket discounts. Many resorts work with the local motels and offer discounts with lodging. Others offer discounts for kids, or for seniors. See what packages include lift tickets and see if there is a savings involved.
If you do your homework you will find the best family ski resort and have a great and affordable ski vacation.
