The current conditions plaguing resorts around the U.S. are good for one narrow slice of skiers: Parents of young children. Not only will you avoid the emotional trauma of spending a powder day skiing backwards with your boots unbuckled, but you’ll save money, too, as hungry resorts lure families with free airfare for the little ones.

Here are our picks of kids-fly-free programs.

Aspen/Snowmass
Book an adult ticket to Snowmass by February 17 on ski.com(North America’s largest provider of mountain vacations), and you’ll get one free plane ticket for a child ages 7 to 12.

Jackson Hole
Kids 12 and under fly free with a fare-paying adult from now through Feb. 3, and from March 5 through April 8. [Jacksonhole.com]

Steamboat
One child 11 and under flies free with each fare-paying adult to Steamboat’s Hayden Airport. Kids 12 and under also ski free with you when you buy a five-day ticket at regular prices. [resortqueststeamboat.com]
