The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass gives your child hundreds of reasons to ski and snowboard this New Year
Start the New Year off right! Pick up a Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass to get your kids started in skiing and snowboarding.
Another year has come and gone, and we are all busy coming up with our own New Year’s resolutions for 2015. Most of us are aiming to lead happier and healthier lives by eating better, working less, spending more time with our family, and being more active. But what about our kids? It’s never too late – or too early – to get the kids started on their own goals to stay active and healthy in 2015. What better way to get them started right away than by getting them out and on the hills, skiing and snowboarding with the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass!
Any child in grade 4 or 5 (or who was born in 2004 or 2005) is eligible for a SnowPass and with over 150 ski areas participating in the program – including 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 in Alberta, 1 in Saskatchewan, 2 in Manitoba, 32 in Ontario, 57 in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada, and 1 in the Yukon – it’s accessible to nearly everyone. Plus, it’s an unbeatable offer: it provides three lift passes at each and every one of the 150+ ski areas nationwide for Canadian kids in Grade 4 and Grade 5! For a full list of participating ski areas, visit www.snowpass.ca.
One of the great things about the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program is that it encourages children to get outside during the long Canadian winter. “Skiing and snowboarding are excellent ways to get kids outside and active in winter,” says Patrick Arkeveld, President and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council. “Skiing and snowboarding are healthy and fun outdoor activities, and what’s more, they’re family sports that create great family traditions and family memories.”
Now applying for a SnowPass is easier than ever! Visit www.snowpass.ca, upload your child’s picture and proof of age, enter your payment, and voila! Your child’s SnowPass will be sent straight to your home. You can also pay a little extra to have your SnowPass sent to you via XpressPost so that you receive it sooner. Details can be found on the SnowPass website.
