Keystone,CO - I like to think of myself as a jack of all trade. I’ve danced down quite a few career and job paths for my young age. One of these paths, which I’m currently pursuing, is helping people plan their dream vacations to ski resorts. Saving people money without sacrificing a quality experience is the name of the game. Here are a few tricks of the trade I’ll share with you to save some green this season in Aspen/Snowmass.

Are there kids in your crew? This March, bringing the kids along may be cheaper than expected. A Kids Ski and Stay for Free promotion offers kids ages 7-12 a few good deals as long as the adults in the party purchase lifts and lodging for four or more nights.
• One child will ski and stay free with a comparable adult purchase for four or more days/nights
• One child can get rentals for free with the adult purchase for four or more nights
• Purchase one adult lesson and receive one child lesson free

One important thing to remember when reviewing deals that resorts put out is read the fine print. In this deal, pay attention to the following: kids are ages 7-12, must stay four nights and package lifts with lodging, book BEFORE February 18, 2011, and valid March 1- 31, 2011. As long as the guide lines are followed this can save you a great deal of cash.
