The most affordable way for Canadian kids to slide on snow this winter
Learning to ski and snowboard has been a rite of passage for Canadian kids for decades. Many adults can fondly recall the days of soggy snow pants, rope tows, pommel lifts and t-bars, followed by a hot cup of cocoa in the lodge. The feeling of pure joy that comes with sliding down the slopes is what kept many active in the sport well into adulthood.
The Canadian Ski Council wants to keep traditions going strong and is proud to bring the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass back for its 25th year!
Since 1996, thousands of Canadian kids have been introduced to the thrill of sliding on snow through the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program – a catalyst for a lifelong passion of being active in the outdoors during the winter months.
As teachers, you already know the benefits of physical activity. You also understand that those benefits reach well beyond healthy and strong bodies. Children that are physically active also have improved mental clarity, focus and moods.
The Canadian Ski Council believes that skiing and snowboarding should be accessible to all Canadians. Programs like the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass greatly assist with financial barriers families may have. For many Canadians, skiing and snowboarding may feel out of their limited budget, especially after the pandemic. We’re proud to say there is an affordable way to get children on the slopes!
For just $29 plus applicable taxes, students currently enrolled in grades four or five can ski or snowboard twice at all participating ski areas across Canada! The brief application process simply requires proof of age or grade and a photo for the child’s SnowPass. The program is now fully digital, so no cards, passes or products will be mailed; everything can be done online. The SnowPass team is currently processing applications and looks forward to receiving applications from your students and their families.
After a couple of seasons affected by COVID-19, the Canadian ski and snowboard industry is poised for a strong comeback during the 2021/22 winter season. Many ski areas are preparing for opening day and are eagerly anticipating welcoming skiers and snowboarders back to their slopes!
