Looking for some great ways to get your kids out skiing yet save money? There are plenty of opportunities if you shop around a bit.
Ski New Hampshire again is offering the fourth- and fifth-grade passport program this season. Available to any student in these two grades, out-of-state as well as in-state, the $59 passport allows one day of skiing or riding at each of the trade group’s participating 33 alpine and cross-country resorts. That can come out to less than $2 per day.
The passport can be purchased online at www.skinh.com/passport starting in mid-November. Act quickly because there will be a limited number sold. Ski New Hampshire also is working on a mobile app for this program, also to be available in mid-November.
In addition, most alpine resorts in New Hampshire offer great programs for kids as young as 4 years old. Whether it be a one-time lesson, a season-long program, or a vacation ski/ride camp, this is a wonderful way for kids to learn new skills while making friends. A bonus is these programs give parents an opportunity to explore the resort on their own.
