If you have kids, you know that winter in Maine can be kind of tricky.  You don't want your kids to spend 3+ months doing nothing but playing on their tablets, but most winter fun is expensive.

There is always some cost for equipment - proper clothing, sleds, skis, snowboard, tubes, ice skates, etc.  And, in many cases, there is also a cost to actually participate in the activity.  Lift tickets, for example.

If you have ever gone skiing or snowboarding, you know that it is a very expensive hobby.  Even the junior lift tickets are kind of expensive.

Well, the good news is that, if you have kids, you can send them skiing for just a few dollars!

According to WMTW, the Winter Kids website and app have a bunch of deals on family winter fun.

Once you download the app, you can sign your family (up to 5 people) up for $40 for the entire year.  You'll get free or discounted lift tickets to some amazing mountains like Mount Abrams, Pleasant Mountain, Titcomb Mountain, and Lost Valley.
