Deals: Free skiing for kids, Labor Day deals
posted by: Gretchen
I consider myself a true Colorado Girl. That means that I really do like both the summer AND the winter. I am happy for the warm sunny days of summer and the hiking and outdoor fun that we can have – I am equally as excited when winter comes around and that we are able to have fun outside still. I love to snowboard – and if you’ve not heard, Colorado has a fantastic program where kids can try out the sport for FREE. Yep – a favorite sport (snowboarding) paired with a favorite word (FREE).
Winter is Coming. No, I’m not talking about the line from Game of Thrones. I’m taking about the awesome deals that you can get for yourself and your kids in the fall for the upcoming ski season.
· Vail Resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone) are once again offering their Epic School Kids. Four free days at each of the resorts, one beginner ski lesson and equipment on the day of the lesson. You need to take your kids to a Ski and Golf/Ski and Sport/Boulder Sport location along with proof they are in kindergarten through fifth grade.
· Colorado Ski Country’s Passport is back as well. Register your 5th or 6th grader for their free pass. The pass includes most of the state’s ski areas (that is at 21 awesome resorts). Fifth graders get to try three times at each resort, 6th graders pass has a very minimal fee (of just $105) but you get 4 times at each of the resorts. The pass also includes a beginner level lesson and equipment on the date of that lesson.
· Junior Trade lets you score a deal on rental gear for kids. Purchase a used setup (both ski and snowboard setups available) at Colorado Ski and Golf (Ski and Sport OR Boulder Ski Deals) locations for around $100 use it all season long. Feel free to trade it back in if the kids grow out of it mid-season. Then, bring it back in the spring for 50% money back.
· Looking for a deal on ski wear? Look no further than Ski Rex at Colorado Ski and Golf Locations or Powder Daze at Christy Sports locations this weekend! Save up to 70% off (some of last year’s fashions).
