Best US Ski Resorts for Families

While many ski resorts woo families with stellar ski schools, convenient lodging options, varied terrain for all skill levels, and kid-pleasing on-mountain restaurants, a handful go above and beyond to keep kids of all ages happy, on and off the slopes. After all, what better way to lure lifelong customers than with complimentary chocolate chip cookies every afternoon (Beaver Creek), snowboard rentals for 3-year-olds (Keystone), or free access to bouncy houses and inflatable slides (Smugglers' Notch)?

Here's a look at six US ski resorts that do a particularly good job of rolling out the red carpet for the kids.

Keystone, CO

Park-City-Mountain-Resort.jpgKids ski free at Keystone Resort all winter long. That's right—no charge for lift tickets for children 12 and under, plus no blackout dates. This is huge boon for families who tend to travel during peak-season school vacations: Christmas week, President's Day weekend, and spring break. It doesn't matter if you have one child or six, as long as you have lodging booked for two nights or more in a Keystone Resort condominium or hotel, your kids get free lift tickets for the length of your stay.

Kids love to climb on and around the giant snow fort on Dercum Mountain, with its ice slides, thrones, tunnels, and castle towers. A brand-new Burton Riglet Park and pint-sized rentals allow children as young as three to sample snowboarding (typically, kids start snowboard lessons at age 7).

Park City, UT

While Park City Mountain Resort doesn't have a fancy ski-school center or an on-site child-care nursery for visiting infants or toddlers, it does have guaranteed instructor-to-student ratios in its Kids Signature programs. Children ages 3½ to 5 learn to ski in groups of no more than three, while ages 6 to 14 are in class sizes no bigger than five.
