A father/son or mother/daughter getaway is a great bonding experience – especially when you're bonding over a mutual love of snow. Even better, is when your time spent together comes at an awesome bargain. Let's face it, kids are expensive so any extra help parents can get on an overnight ski trip is always welcome. This winter, be a hero mom or dad just by staying at the White Mountain Hotel & Resort in North Conway, NH.  

Located just minutes from the lifts at Cranmore Mountain Resort, the White Mountain Hotel & Resort is a perfect alternative to expensive on-mountain lodging, with many of the same perks. Okay, so you can't ski in and out, but wouldn't you gladly forfeit that when you can get a free youth lift ticket (age 12 or under) as the reward? We thought so. 

Simply book any Cranmore Mountain Overnight Ski Package between Jan. 1 and 31, 2013 and you'll receive deluxe overnight accommodations, one adult lift ticket and a full country breakfast to energize you for a long day of chasing your spry little guy around the mountain. Just mention "SKI FREE" when making your reservations and they'll have a youth ticket waiting for you upon check-in. Limit of one free youth ticket per package, per stay.

Package rates start at just $115 per person / per night for midweek stays and $225 per person / per night on weekends. Rooms and rates are based on double occupancy. Not valid during MLK weekend (January 19-21, 2013).

And don't worry, this package isn't biased against parents with more than kid. Additional youth tickets can be purchased from the Hotel at a discounted rate of just $19 per ticket.
