The annual WinterKids App membership is now available. Families who purchase a membership and download the app will have access to offers on lift tickets, equipment rentals, gear, special family days, and much more at more than 80 recreational areas and retailers across Maine. New offers are added to the app regularly throughout the winter, and in the off-season.

This is the fourth year of the WinterKids App, which replaced the Passport paper booklet. Users can register up to five family members for $40. The app is available for all children 17 and younger. Offers vary within the app, and new offers are available regularly.

“The WinterKids App membership is an incredible opportunity for Maine families to get outside and be active together this winter,” said WinterKids Executive Director Julie Mulkern, in the release from the nonprofit based in Westbrook.

There are three steps to gaining access to these wintertime deals. First, interested families can view a list of App partner areas and purchase their membership online at Next, they can create family profiles for their account, which can include up to four children and/or other family members. Last, they can download the app onto a mobile device.
