A new year brings with it the opportunity for new vacations. And when family clients are still recovering from the holidays — and aren't willing to break the bank — there are still several options for some family-filled winter-time fun. Below are four winter packages made especially with families in mind.
Children Sail Free With MSC Cruises
Kids can sail for free on select MSC Cruises itineraries, which offer a variety of family-friendly facilities and programs. Onboard activities include scavenger hunts, cookie decorating, team games and more, with programs designed for a range of ages. Other highlights for kids include access to Lego bricks and games, arts and crafts and teen dance parties with a DJ. The “Kids Around the Clock” program provides late-night supervision while parents enjoy evenings alone at the onboard nightclub or lounge. This winter, the offer applies to children 12 and under who are traveling with their parents in the same cabin. Beginning in summer 2017, the offer will be valid for kids 11 and younger.
Kids and Grandkids Ski Free at Steamboat Ski Resort
This season, kids ages 12 and under can ski and rent equipment for free at Steamboat Ski Resort in Steamboat Springs, Colo., for the same number of days as a parent or grandparent when adult lift tickets are purchased for a minimum of five days. Grandparents who are over 70 years old and traveling with children must purchase an adult ticket — not a senior ticket — to qualify for this offer. Additionally, one child is eligible for a free season pass when his or her parent, grandparent or legal guardian purchases an adult Steamboat Season Pass.
Tierra Hotels Offers Discounts for Families
With a purchase of a four-night all-inclusive stay at Tierra Hotels properties in Chile, one child or teen can stay, dine and go on excursions for free for every one paying adult. Families can enjoy luxury accommodations at either Tierra Atacama in the Atacama Desert or view the stunning scenery in Torres del Paine at Tierra Patagonia. The promotion applies for stays at Tierra Acatama Hotel & Spa from July 1 to Sept. 7, or Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa from April 1 to May 1.
Winter Packages Available at 320 Guest Ranch
Clients can enjoy the winter season with a variety of family-friendly packages at 320 Guest Ranch in Gallatin Gateway, Mont. Those who select the Winter Fun package, which is valid until March 11, will experience Montana’s great outdoors during three nights of cabin lodging. During their stay, families can spend time on the Adventure Zip Line at Big Sky Resort, participate in a half-day Walk and Wade river adventure and more. The price of the trip begins at $1,329 for a double Deluxe Log Cabin. An additional adult can join for $467, and an additional child can join for $440.
