Listen up Canada. If you have a 9 or 10 year old at home, here’s an incredible opportunity for them to ski or snowboard all winter long for almost next to nothing. What a fabulous opportunity to get the kids outside and active all winter long!
Once again, the Canadian Ski Council is offering the SnowPass for kids in grades 4 and 5 (or ages 9 or 10). The SnowPass lets kids ski or snowboard three times at each of the 150+ ski areas across Canada for a one-time administration fee of $29.95, including taxes. Ski three times at Blue Mountain, then three times at Mount St. Louis, then three times at Grouse Mountain… you get the picture.
Since the pass is good for two years, if you apply in grade 4, the pass is good until the end of grade 5. There’s no need to re-apply. Just be sure to keep the pass in a safe place over the summer.
The 2016/2017 SnowPass is valid starting December 1, 2016. Apply soon so you can make the most of the ski/snowboard season!
There are three ways to apply:
- Online Application – upload child’s photo, proof of age and make payment online
- Printed Online Application – enter child’s information online, print and send via mail.
- Brochure Application – complete the application found in the SnowPass brochure and send via mail.
The Canadian Ski Council is a non-profit national organization mandated to increase the participation in skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing in Canada.
Number of participating ski areas by province:
British Columbia: 31
Atlantic Canada: 7
Please note: Some ski /snowboard areas have blackout periods, may require a paying adult to accompany the SnowPass holder or may have a customized offer that will be indicated in your SnowPass folder. Visit skicanada.org for the full list of participating ski areas and restrictions.
