In Grade 5?
Ski and Ride for Free with the Grade 5 SnowPass!
Winter has finally arrived in Ontario and Quebec!
Great snow conditions all across Canada
There is still lots of winter left and what better way to
enjoy the season, then out skiing and snowboarding at some of Canada’s great
ski and snowboard areas!
These lucky 10 year old children from across Canada have the opportunity to ski or ride for free up to three times at each participating ski area in their region this winter and the SnowPass book also includes one day passes for next year, when the child is in Grade 6. For a list of participating ski areas, please visitwww.snowpass.ca
Since the Grade 5 SnowPass program began 10 years ago, nearly 300,000 kids have taken part. Each year the popularity of the program builds - after all, what child (or parent) wouldn’t jump at the chance for some free and exciting winter fun! One of the great things about the program is that it encourages children to stay active during the long Canadian winter. It’s also a wonderful way to introduce kids to the sport, as many resorts offer discounted lessons and rentals to SnowPass booklet holders.
"Skiing and snowboarding are excellent ways to get kids outside and active in winter," says Colin Chedore, President of the Canadian Ski Council (CSC). "Skiing and snowboarding healthy and fun outdoor activities, and what’s more, they’re family sports that everyone can enjoy."
Applications for the Canadian Ski Council’s Grade 5 SnowPass program are available online at, the newly redesigned SnowPass website. Once their application is processed by the CSC, children participating in the Grade 5 SnowPass program will receive a booklet that includes up to three ski-free coupons per ski area, and discounts on lessons and equipment rentals at participating ski areas. And remember, some participating areas also offer a bonus Grade 6 coupon that can be used next season.
Remember, this year anyone in grade 5 or born in 1996 can ski or ride for free!
