Spring is a great time to take the family on a little outing to snow country.
It could more than worth you while, if you take the brood to South Lake Tahoe over the next couple of weeks.
In fact, it could be priceless.
That's because through March 31, kids 12 and under can:
*Snowmobile for free at Zephyr Cove (Nev.) Snowmobile Center;
*Ride for free on the M.S. Dixie II with Lake Tahoe Cruises;
*Bowl for free Tahoe Bowl in South Lake Tahoe, Calif.;
*Fly free at Soaring NV glider rides in nearby Minden, Nev.;
*Skate for free at South Lake Tahoe Parks and Recreation Ice Arena.
More than 20 South Lake Tahoe lodging properties, six recreational outlets, and two restaurants have combined to help cut family travel costs through March 31 with its Kid Are Free promotion.
Accommodations must be booked through participating Heavenly or Sierra-at-Tahoe lodging partners for free skiing. Each child under 12 will ski free with each paying adult.
Kids can dine for free at Zephyr Cove Restaurant and Murphy's Irish Pub/Rockwater Restaurant when parents purchase an adult meal.
