Spring Break Ski Deals
I am always looking for a deal and my kids don’t often get to return from Spring Break with a fantastical tale about where they go to go on Spring Break. There are some amazing deals right here in Colorado for ski vacations!
Vail has some amazing things you can do beyond skiing/boarding. You can check out the amazing moves from some of the best snowboarders in the world at the Burton US Snowboarding Championships. They will also have several bands and other fun things to do Feb 25th – March 2. (OK, so that’s BEFORE spring break – but still fun!)
Keystone still offers the kids ski free promotion. Where if you stay two nights or more at one of their resorts, your kids can stay and ski free.They also have a lot of other family/kid friend events and fun through March 24 with the Kidtopia program.
March 31 – Beach’n Egg Hunt. Arapahoe Basin invites guests to this free event, as the Easter Bunny visits A-Basin for an egg hunt that both skiing and non-skiing kids can enjoy. Kids on skis will head to one of the green (beginner) trails to search for eggs, and those who wish to hunt on foot can search in the learning spaces near the base area.
March 23/24 & March 30/31 is the Terrain Park Boot Camp. This free event at Snowmass gives kids and adults alike a chance to learn the ropes of the terrain park. Professional coaches and athletes teach rails, jumps and boxes on features that are the perfect size for any beginner.
March 16 – Kids Rock Winter Concert Series. Back by popular demand, the third annual Kids’ Rock Winter Concert Series will bring world-class family entertainment to Crested Butte.
