Killington Pond Skim


Kids Ski Free

Buying lift tickets for multiple days can be expensive! If you have children ages 6 & under you should consider visiting one of these resorts below. Kids get free lift tickets and ski for free at all of these Vermont ski resorts. This includes 14 ski areas right now both large and small. This page is partially updated for the ’23-’24 season. The only notable change to far is that Stratton is no longer offering free ticket to kids 4 & under. The cost there is now $10/day

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 ’23-’24 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 $204/day total on a weekday (that’s $68 + $68 + $68 = $204). This total can be cheaper than most of the resorts that are 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, Cochran’s Ski Area and others. Top picks include Smuggler’s Notch, Jay Peak, and Magic Mountain. Last year Smuggler’s Notch and Jay Peak both charged $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 was charging $69 for kids on peak days last season.
