> Park City Mountain Resort in Utah is one of our favorite places to ski with kids. Have you heard the news? This ski icon is now part of the Vail Resorts family, with all of the associated state-of-the-art ski experience perks!
> Kids under 12 ski and ride free at Keystone Resort in Colorado. We love this program, which helps make skiing more affordable for families!
> Although the 2014-2015 winter in Lake Tahoe is off to an excellent start — there’s 3 feet of snow and counting today — families know there will always be skiable terrain at Northstar California Resort, as they have the largest snowmaking system in North Lake Tahoe.
