The February holiday’s are around the corner and for my daughters and me that means an awesome winter ski vacation. This season there are two California resorts offering great winter getaway packages for families.
Snow Summit and Bear Mountain are offering a program called Kids Ski / Ride for Free. It is good on weekdays all season long, including spring break! The program entitles families to one free kid’s lift ticket voucher for each paying adult lift ticket. Free kids tickets are valid for kids 12 years and under. Lift tickets are good for either or both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain. Packages are good only at Big Bear participating lodges and arrivals must be Sunday through Thursday and skiing or snowboarding Monday through Friday. Midweek skiing is especially valuable with no wait time at the chair lifts and the runs are wide open. Visit www.BigBear.com or call 800-424-4232 as certain restrictions apply.
