There are a number of ski resorts that participate in a family ski programme. They offer discounts on lift passes to families. There are some conditions, for example you have to have a print version of the coupon on your person, you cannot get the discount by showing it online. Most resorts in the programme also stipulate that children of the family must be under a certain age, usually primary school age or younger. Generally, you cannot use these coupons in conjunction with any other type of discount. However, for those who fall within the guidelines, there are some great savings to enjoy. The coupons I will be featuring this month can only be used for the 2015-2016 ski / snowboarding season.
