Hit the Slopes with a Grade 5 SnowPass

Children in Grade 5, or who are ten years old, can ski and ride for free at their favourite hills this winter courtesy of the Canadian Ski Council and partner resorts across Canada.

The Grade 5 SnowPass program offers eligible Canadian children up to three free days of skiing or snowboarding at each participating ski area in their region.

This amazing deal is available at 150 different ski areas, including 98 in the East (Ontario to Newfoundland) and 52 in the West (Manitoba to B.C.)-that's four more Western resorts than last year! The choices are almost endless, so no matter where you live in Canada, from the biggest city to the smallest town, you'll find an exciting winter destination near you.

"We're very excited to offer this kind of winter experience to Canada's children,"

says Colin Chedore, President of the Canadian Ski Council (CSC). "Skiing and snowboarding are not only safe and fun activities for the kids, but they're also a wonderful way for families to be active together outdoors, getting healthy and having a blast doing it."

The Grade 5 SnowPass booklet includes up to three ski-free coupons for each ski area as well as coupons for discounts or rebates on lessons and equipment rentals.

Some participating areas also offer a bonus Grade 6 coupon that can be used next season. Each Grade 5 student who applies will receive either an Eastern or Western SnowPass booklet, depending on where they live in Canada.

For a chance to win fantastic ski and snowboard prizes, each SnowPass applicant can enter the "Tell a Friend" referral contest. If you tell your friend about the SnowPass program and they send in an application, you'll be entered in a draw for some amazing prizes like Sport Check gift certificates, lift passes, equipment, and more.

Grade 5 SnowPass applications are available online at and

Applications are also available Canada-wide from Grade 5 elementary school teachers and at Sport Mart, Sport Chek, Sports Experts, and Intersport stores. The program begins December 1st, 2007 and SnowPass booklets will be mailed out to applicants beginning November 19, 2007.
