Vail Resorts is one of the very best mountain resort companies in the world, and they have invested heavily in creating phenomenal ski experiences for families at all of their ski resorts. Good news: The Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass enables seamless access to each and every one of them.
Here are 10 awesome Vail Resorts highlights to ponder before planning a family ski vacation for the upcoming 2015 season. The biggest challenge now is choosing where to go … happy skiing!
> 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.
> I’m still dreaming of Cookie Time at Beaver Creek Resort in Colorado, when fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies are delivered to the slopes at the end of the day.
> Calling all moms! Vail Resorts is going out of their way to make skiing and snowboarding more accessible to women with focused, customized lessons just for them, including Mommy & Me parent/child programs.
> Adventure Ridge at Vail Resort has ski bikes, a kids’ snowmobile track and tubing lanes, and is the size of a football stadium! There’s no running out of things to do with kids in these parts of Colorado.
> Teens will think they’ve died and gone to heaven when they experience the DJ cat at Heavenly Lake Tahoe, with 52 speakers and 12,000 watts of amps. That’s some party!
