2013-2014 Grade 4 & 5 SnowPasses: Sign Up Now
The SnowPass helps to keep kids active during the winter months
One of Canada’s easiest ways to get kids healthy and active this winter is now available. The Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass is available online. It’s an unbeatable offer: it provides three lift passes at each of the 150+ ski areas nation-wide for Canadian kids in Grade 4 and Grade 5.
SnowPass Advantage: “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 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. 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, enter your payment and their proof of age, or 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 and payment; all for a one-time 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. SnowPass cards will be mailed to you beginning in mid-November, before the December 1st SnowPass season start date!
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 this SnowPass to use. Kids can easily track how many lift passes they have left by visiting www.snowpass.ca.
Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass information and applications are available online at www.snowpass.ca or www.passeportdesneiges.ca. Application forms are also being distributed to elementary schools across Canada beginning in early November.
