Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the weather

Winter is the tough time of year for kids to be active; the days get shorter and the temperature drops. It can be hard to motivate your kids to step away from the screens and get active outside.  Have no fears, the Canadian Ski Council has a program to help out! The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass Program is an affordable way to get your child on the slopes. At the CSC, we understand that it is more difficult to get active in the winter, regardless of age, so why not get your kids inspired now to get outside and enjoy winter?

Now in its 19th year, the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program allows any child in grade 4 or 5 (born in 2005 or 2006) to visit any of our participating ski areas and enjoy. If you apply for the program when your child is in grade 4, the pass is good for two whole years! This gives your child the proper opportunity to experience all types of ski areas that Canada has to offer.

For only $29.95, your child can ski at any of 150 participating ski areas three times each. That’s a lot of time on the slopes and adds up to a lot of savings. Please note that the SnowPass provides a child’s lift ticket for that particular ski area. It does not cover any equipment rentals.

No matter where you live, finding a ski area in the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a piece of cake! The SnowPass is a national program and is valid at 150 ski areas across Canada, including 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 21 in Alberta, 1 in Saskatchewan, 2 in Manitoba, 29 in Ontario, 57 in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada, and 1 in the Yukon.

Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass information and applications are available online at www.snowpass.ca or www.passeportdesneiges.ca. Sign up today so you have the SnowPass in time for the snow season.
