There's no better time than now to get out and enjoy some family fun in the snow! As ski resorts across the country ramp up for their big season, many thrill-seeking families are wondering which ski resorts are most “family-friendly?”
Family-friendly resorts typically offer top-notch group and private instruction for children of all ages, plus dedicated teaching areas on the slopes. They also usually have free or discounted lift tickets, equipment rentals, and even lessons for children. If travelling with non-skiing members of the family, look for resorts that offer day care or supervised kid’s camps with a variety of activities. Most family-friendly ski resorts feature a variety of family entertainment options for evenings, nights, and non-ski days (think mountain coasters, spas, and zip lines!). In addition, the most family-friendly resorts offer reasonably priced family restaurants and lodging designed with families in mind, like condos with multiple bedrooms and a kitchen.
So, which ski resorts are the most family-friendly? Four of our favorites are highlighted below!
