Winter season has taken on a whole new meaning now that our children ski. When they were babies, I dreaded being stuck indoors with all their pent up energy and the ensuing cabin fever. Now, we look forward to the cold weather and spending time on the slopes together. We already have three ski trips planned for this season!
One of our favorite destinations is Utah. The direct flights from NYC-area airports, 10 ski resorts within one hour of Salt Lake City Airport, and family-friendly, world-class skiing, make Utah a Tri-State area favorite. The year before last, we spent winter break at The Canyons in Park City. It could not have been more family-friendly and it snowed the entire time. Both big boys advanced a full ski level that week with the thorough and engaging instruction they received at ski school.
As if we haven't been dying to go back, Ski Utah, representing 14 resorts across Utah, has a Passport Program for 5th and 6th graders. Any 5th and 6th grader in the world is eligible. For $45, 5th graders get 3 ski days at 13 Utah resorts (39 days total!) Sixth graders get 1 day (13 total). Any way you slice it, that's a major discount for lift tickets. The Passport Program is such a fun way to try different mountains and it's completely digital. All children need to do to redeem their tickets is to give their name and birth date at the ticket windows. So quick and easy! I cannot wait to check out the program for ourselves.
There are also tons of additional savings when it comes to the Passport that are only available in the Parent Portal. Make sure you check out the whole page as there are lots of discounts available.
Tell me Glamamoms, where are you skiing this winter? Doesn't the Ski Utah Passport Program sound like a great incentive for your middle schoolers?
