The Canadian Ski Council (CSC) is once again offering Grade 4 & 5 students its SnowPass, an unbeatable offer that gives 9- and 10-year-old children three lift passes at each more than 150 ski areas, nationwide, for just $29.95.
“Introducing children to skiing and snowboarding are great ways for children to learn a new sport that they can participate in during the winter months. Teaching children to ski or snowboard 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 active, outside, fit, and less prone to obesity during the winter months. Skiing and snowboarding are also great activities for the entire family to participate in, and the SnowPass allows children to engage in the sport in an affordable way.”
The SnowPass allows children (born in 2004 or 2005) the opportunity to ski and snowboard hundreds of times over the winter. 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 Dec. 1 until the end of the season.
The pass is valid for 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 ski areas in Alberta, 1 ski area in Saskatchewan, 2 ski areas in Manitoba, 32 ski areas in Ontario, 57 ski areas in Quebec, 8 ski areas in Atlantic Canada, and 1 ski area in the Yukon.
Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass information and applications are available online at www.snowpass.ca orwww.passeportdesneiges.ca. Application forms are also being distributed to elementary schools.
