More Free Lift Tickets for Kids and Notable Deals
Free 5-day ticket for kids 12 & under at Killington – This deal is back again for the ’22-’23 season. If you purchase a 5-day adult lift ticket you will get a free ticket for any child 12 & under on the same dates (with restrictions).
Consider this… Jay Peak offers discounted lift tickets which are limited to use on the beginner portion of the mountain and this is where you are likely to spend most of your skiing time if you have a 5 yr. old with you. These tickets are available to adults and children. Two adults and 1 toddler age 5 can ski here for $176/day total (that’s $62 + $62 + $50 = $176). This total will be cheaper than most of the resorts listed on this page where kids ski for free, but the adults are stuck paying full-price for full-mountain tickets that they don’t fully use.
What is the cheapest VT ski resort for children above age 6? For this question we will only consider the larger ski resorts, ignoring smaller ski areas like Northeast Slopes, Bromley and others. Right now Smuggler’s Notch and Jay Peak both charge $79 for kids during peak season. Magic Mountain is also a good ski area to keep on your list because it is a medium-sized resort but only charging $69 for kids on peak days. View all prices on our lift ticket comparison page.
