Ski and snowboard three times at each of the 150+ participating ski areas this winter

Winter is just around the corner. Get your kids outside and active this season.

Halloween is behind us, which means it’s time to start preparing for the upcoming winter season and how to keep your children active. Why not put skiing and snowboarding on your list of outdoor activities for your family to participate in this year? The Canadian Ski Council (CSC) has a great way to help you out! The CSC’s Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is back for its 19th season, just in time for the upcoming winter season. The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is an unbeatable offer, providing 9- and 10-year-old children with three lift passes at each of the 150 ski areas, nationwide, for just $29.95. That’s over 450 lift passes!

The SnowPass provides children in grades 4 and 5 (born in 2005 or 2006) with three lift tickets at each participating ski area across Canada, allowing them the opportunity to ski and snowboard hundreds of times over the winter season. You only need to apply once for the SnowPass and it is valid until the end of grade 5. This means if you apply in grade 4 the SnowPass is valid for two seasons. The SnowPass is active as of December 1st until the end of the season. The SnowPass is a fantastic and inexpensive way to introduce your child to skiing and/or snowboarding and the incredible ski areas across Canada.

To sign up for your very own SnowPass, visit www.snowpass.ca (or www.passeportdesneiges for French speaking applicants), where you’ll be able to upload your child’s picture, proof of age, and pay the $29.95 administration fee. SnowPasses are now being sent out, in time for the December 1st SnowPass start date.

The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a national program and is valid at 150 ski areas across Canada, including 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 21 ski areas in Alberta, 1 ski area in Saskatchewan, 2 ski areas in Manitoba, 29 ski areas in Ontario, 57 ski areas in Quebec, 8 ski areas in Atlantic Canada, and 1 ski area in the Yukon. With ski areas participating across Canada, families will not have to travel far to put their SnowPass to use. Kids can easily track how many lift passes are remaining 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.
