One of the questions I’m asked the most as a ski mom is, “Where can my kids ski for free?”

The good news is that there are several great places to ski with the children for free or at incredibly low prices that make it possible to have fun without breaking the bank. There are 15 ski resorts in Utah and here are our tips to help you save at each resort.

Alta Ski Area

When parents purchase a family pass, children under the age of six years old will get an unlimited ski pass for free. The family plan is a great option for those with multiple children under the age of six.

If your children are over the age of six, you can still save. Alta offers a season pass for those who have no problem starting their skiing sessions at 3:00 PM. Known by locals as “Sunnyside at Three”. The pass is only $49 for both children and adults, making it a great selection for anyone with older kids who love to ski.

Beaver Mountain
Children who visit Beaver Mountain with an adult who has purchased a season pass will get to ski for free if they are five years old or younger. 

Brian Head Ski Resort
Children ten and under ski free with the Power Kids Pass (also valid at Nordic Valley in Utah!). Advanced registration is necessary.

Brighton offers free skiing opportunities to children under the age of 10 years old. Up to two children can ski for free if they have a paying adult accompanying them on the slopes. More information on the 10 and under ski free program can be found here.
