With the New Year Comes the Arrival of Winter. Make the Best of it With the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass.

We at the Canadian Ski Council could not be more excited that winter has finally arrived because we know that with colder temperatures, comes snow (artificial or not). While not everyone is happy to be going outside in the cold, we at the CSC have something that will get you excited to get outside.

The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program is in its 19th year, providing 9- and 10-year-olds with the chance to ski or snowboard three times total at each of the 150+ participating ski areas across Canada. Literally hundreds of opportunities to ski or snowboard, all for only $29.95! If you sign up your child for the program when they are in grade 4, the pass will be good for two years!

The Season is Far From Over!

There is plenty of winter left, and that means plenty of time for you and the kids to explore the beautiful ski areas across this beautiful country. Any child in grade 4 or 5 is eligible (or those born in 2005 or 2006). Signing up is easy, just head to www.snowpass.ca (www.passeportdesneiges.ca), upload your child’s picture and proof of age, enter your method of payment and presto, your child’s personalized SnowPass will be mailed directly to your home in days.
