Get Kids Winter Active with FREE Skiing & Snowboarding

SnowPass Advantage: "Introducing children to skiing and snowboarding at an early age gives them lifetime access to these healthy winter sports," says Colin Chedore, President of the Canadian Ski Council. "It keeps them fit, less prone to obesity, and outside and active during the winter months. Better yet, skiing and snowboarding are sports kids can do with the whole family for a lifetime."

How It Works: The Canadian Ski Council's SnowPass gives kids in grades 4 and 5 (born in 2000 or 2001) up to three free lift ticket coupons at each participating ski area for the entire winter; providing them with an opportunity to ski or snowboard hundreds of times over the winter season.

Applying is Easy: To sign up, visit www.snowpass.ca, and you have a choice of either uploading your child's picture, enter your payment and their proof of age, or our printed option that allows you to fill out the information, print the application to mail in to the Canadian Ski Council with a photo, proof of age and payment ... all for a one-time administration fee of $20 plus taxes.  Signing up online is the quickest and easiest way to apply for your child's Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass card.  SnowPass cards will be sent straight to you beginning mid November before the December 1st SnowPass season start date! SnowPass applications are also available through elementary schools, and inside Sport Chek, Sport Mart, Sports Experts and Intersport stores across Canada.

Where it Works: Depending on where you live in Canada, each applicant will receive either an Eastern or Western SnowPass card. The Western SnowPass card is valid for children residing in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and at 58 ski areas. The Eastern SnowPass card is valid for Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada at 92 ski areas.  With ski areas participating across Canada, families will not have to travel far to put this SnowPass to use. Kids can easily track how many lift passes they have left by visiting www.snowpass.ca.

Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass information and applications are available online at www.snowpass.ca or www.passeportdesneiges.ca.
