I know skiing with kids can be expensive. That's why I'm always looking for an angle to save myself and my readers some money. My goal? Get us all out on the slopes more with the kiddos without having to tap into our retirement accounts. Sure, you can pack lunches and get used ski gear, but we all know the lift tickets are the big expense. With the Ski Utah Passport, you can get your 4th, 5th and 6th grade kids FREE ski days this season.
