Ski & Snowboard For FREE With Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass
Are you planning on hitting the slopes this March break? It’s a great way to burn energy and with the kids in the house for a full week – rigorous activities are a must! The Canadian Ski Council has created a Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program designed to cut the costs for parents looking to send their children skiing.
How It Works: The Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass gives kids in grades 4 and 5 (born in 2003 or 2004) three lift tickets at each and every participating ski area all across Canada for the entire winter; providing them with an opportunity to ski or snowboard hundreds of times over the winter season, for free. You only need to apply once for the SnowPass and the pass is valid until the end of grade 5. This means if you apply in grade 4 the pass is valid for two years.
Pretty sweet don’t you think? The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a national program and is valid at over 150 ski areas across Canada including 32 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 ski areas in Alberta, 1 ski area in Saskatchewan, 2 ski areas in Manitoba, 33 ski areas in Ontario, 57 ski areas in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada and 1 in the Yukon. With ski areas participating across Canada, families will not have to travel far to put the SnowPass to use. Kids can easily track how many lift passes they have left by visiting www.snowpass.ca.
To sign up, visit www.snowpass.ca, and you have a choice of either uploading your child’s picture, entering your payment and their proof of age, or using our printed option that allows you to fill out the information, print the application to mail in to the Canadian Ski Council with a photo, proof of age or grade and payment; all for a one-time shipping and administration fee of $29.95 including taxes. Signing up online is the quickest and easiest way to apply for your child’s Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass card.
