Here is another cool way to help get your kids started in skiing and save some money. Each year the ski areas in the Inland Northwest run a promotion where 5th graders can ski for free (with a small processing fee of $20).
If you sign your 5th grader up they will get 3 free lift tickets from each of 7 participating ski areas. That is a pretty great deal, and many areas offer discounts on rentals and for siblings as well.
