If you are raising little snow bunnies in Utah, take advantage of “The Greatest Snow on Earth,” (and get some free stuff too) during the 2016-2017 ski season. Park City Mountain Resort and Epic SchoolKids have partnered to provide five free days of skiing, along with a free first-timer skiing or snowboarding lesson with equipment rental, to children in kindergarten to fifth-grade. No purchase is necessary, but you must register and it will only be available until October 9. For a winter full of fresh powder and even fresher fun, this is an opportunity for children to enjoy the state’s great outdoors and to have affordable access to the largest ski resort in the United States.
“Snow sports are a great way for Utah kids to stay active and connected with the outdoors throughout the winter months,” said Bill Rock, chief operating officer for Park City Mountain Resort. “The Epic SchoolKids program is making the experience even easier for Utah families by offering kids free skiing or snowboarding at Park City Mountain.”
This year’s joint effort between the resort and Epic SchoolKids is their second season of free skiing and snowboarding. The deal is their way of giving back to the community and fostering a lifelong admiration for the outdoors, especially during the colder months.
Another special bargain for families is the Junior Trade-In Program. The program is designed to help equipment purchases be more affordable as children continue to grow. Sign up this year and receive used ski and snowboard sets for $99 or new sets for $199. Return next year to trade in outgrown boards and skis, and receive used sets for $49 and new sets for $99. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on new equipment every year, provide unforgettable yearly fun without breaking the bank.
“Skiing and snowboarding are the ultimate family sports,” Rock said. “At Park City, we’re trying to make it as easy as possible so families can enjoy the mountains together.”
To take advantage of the free ski days and lessons, register here before October 9. For more information on board purchases and the Junior Trade-In Program, click here or call the Breeze retail store at the Park City base area at (435) 649-1902 or Canyon Mountain Sports at (435) 615-3440.
