Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass!
Spend this March break outside with the Grade 4 & 5
Register your child for the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass and show
them how much fun skiing and snowboarding can be, for FREE!
March break is just around the corner and it's a much-needed
break during what's started off as a very snowy ski season. Trying to
figure out what to do with the family this March break? Why not make the
most of this vacation, and spend it together as a family at some of
Canada's favourite ski areas?
Skiing and snowboarding are two of Canada's most exciting
winter sports and they are exhilarating ways to spend time together as a
family during the winter months. Kids never tried it before? No
worries! That's where the Canadian Ski Council comes in. They've created
the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program specifically to make it easy and
affordable for parents to get their kids skiing or snowboarding.
"Introducing children to skiing and snowboarding at an early age gives
them lifetime access to these healthy winter sports," says Patrick
Arkeveld, President and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council. "It keeps
them fit, less prone to obesity, and outside and active during the winter
months. Better yet, skiing and snowboarding are sports kids can do with the
entire family for a lifetime."
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.
Applying is Easy: 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.
Where to Use it: 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.
Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass program information and applications
are available online at www.snowpass.ca or www.passeportdesneiges.ca.
