You’ve got a carload of kids but you like to ski. You can see the big picture, the sooner the kids improve their skiing, the sooner they’re out on the mountain ripping it up and having fun. And not to mention out of the ski school system, which is the biggest cost of a family ski vacation. How can you get tha price of the vacation down? Look for ‘Kids Ski Free’ resorts. It’s a big consideration and it’s not to be sniffed at. The resorts that offer the Kids Ski Free deals get your cash. You can plot your next decade by it. Most competitive resorts offer Kids Ski Free till age 12, it’s the rare one that offers more than that. Red Mountain in British Columbia offers ‘Kids Ski Free’ till age 18. Red Mountain is ear-marked for us as a highly desirable resort but free to age 18 means we have two more years for our child age 10, then we know we’ve got Red Mountain good to go for 6 years. Check out the following resorts to help you plan your next vacation with the grommets. Coz with three boys, we sure will: Kids Ski Free to Age 12Silver Star Fernie Kicking Horse Revel stoke Banff Jasper Niseko Rutsutsu Kids Ski Free to age 14:Jackson Hole Kids Ski Free to age 18:Panorama Red Mountain If you haven’t heard of most of these mountains, you need to get out more.

It was a ski brochure on the Dolomites (Italy) that first stirred Emma's interest in all things ski-related. That endless white moonscape, skiable as far as the eye can see... those geological wonderments. All those hot gluhwein drinks! Promptly quitting her Japanese language teaching job Emma hot-footed it to Austria to become a a ski-instructor, got engaged and did a season alternating between consuming chicken schnitzels and demonstrating the 'alpine position' to English ski students. Whist still not fulfilling her Dolomite ski fantasy, Emma happily lives and breathes her passion, albeit through writing and finds North America and Japan great snow resorts to share with her young family. Particularly the buffalo wings and the okonomiyaki.
