Where Do Kids Ski Free in Utah?

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.
