With two young kids (ages 7 and 3), it’s a question I have asked the past several years, and one I always get asked a lot from people with similar-aged children. Where can my kids ski for free in Utah?
Let’s be honest: with little ones in tow, it’s less about the actual skiing or snowboarding and more about the experience and early exposure to snow sports. And many of us are all about providing that experience for toddlers and young kids without breaking the bank.
The good news is, many resorts in Utah provide free day passes for kids under a certain age (blackout dates and restrictions aside). Here is our list of Utah resorts that have free options for kids.
Alta Ski Area
When you purchase a Family Season Alta Package for two adults and two children (ages 7-17), kids in the family aged six and under get a complimentary pass.
Additional "child" season passes can be added to this family package for $235.
Kids 12 and under can also get the Kids Sunnyside at 3 Season Pass for $99. This pass is valid for afternoon skiing from 3–4:30 p.m. any day of the season. With direct-to-lift access, kids can skip the ticket window and maximize their afternoon ski time. More info here.
Make the most of early season turns with Beaver Mountain’s 5 and under season pass. It’s FREE through November 30, 2023. Starting December 1, 2023, the price for this child pass is $100 for the rest of the season.
Brian Head Ski Resort
Kids 12 and under ski free – no strings attached! Just get them enrolled in their free Power Kids pass, which is good at any Power Pass Mountain (which means free skiing at Nordic Valley, too).
Well-known as the place where Utahns learn to ski and board, a paying adult can bring up to two kids ages 6 and under to ski free. This offer is good all season or until the child ages out. Details here.
Solitude Mountain Resort
Kids age 4 and under ski free. However, if you want to skip the ticket window with your child, you can get a Solitude Toddler Pass for $35, and your little one can enjoy unlimited access with no blackout dates.
With so many options for kids to ski and board for free this season, we're excited to see lots of little ones skiing and riding!
