Are you thinking about heading to the ski resort with the family this winter? Ski holidays can be done on a budget, but when the whole family is involved, more often than not the price soon racks up.
If someone said your kids can ski for absolutely free when you’re on holiday, you’d snap their hand off, wouldn’t you? Saving money on your holiday is always a huge positive! Well, that is a reality, while many ski resorts offer great deals where kids can ski or learn to ski for a reduced fee, we’ve trawled the internet to find over 40 resorts across Europe and North America which offer free skiing for kids (up to the age of 17 in some resorts).
Take a look below for the up-to-date list for the 2018/19 season where kids can ski for free. Always be sure to check the terms and conditions to check there about qualifying ages, booking deadlines, minimum stays and blackout dates. We’ve tried to be as clear as possible with these points, but we would recommend to always double check!
