The popular Kids Fly Free program returns to Eagle Airport (EGE) this season via American Airlines. For each paid adult fare (age 18 and above) for flights into Eagle Airport, purchased in conjunction with select lodging, American Airlines is offering one free ticket for children ages 2 through 12. Children also receive free skiing or snowboarding at Vail and Beaver Creek with a paying adult; and free lodging with a paying adult at select properties through Vail Beaver Creek Reservations.
The entire family can get in on the deal with two specials unique to Vail and Beaver Creek; Fly In Ski Free and Ski Free Stay Free – the value-oriented “buy two, get one free” lodging and lift ticket offer. Guests flying into Eagle Airport on a commercial flight through April 15, 2012 can ski or snowboard for free at Vail and Beaver Creek on their day of arrival. To participate, skiers and snowboarders simply show their same-day boarding pass and Vail Valley lodging confirmation at any Vail or Beaver Creek ticket window to redeem their free lift ticket valid the day of arrival only. It’s a great way to get the ski vacation started early and warm up for a full day on the mountain.
Guests can save even more on lodging and lift tickets with the Ski Free Stay Free offer. Purchase a minimum of two nights of lodging and two days of lift tickets and receive the third night of lodging and day of skiing or snowboarding free.
