As Colorado’s ski areas prepare to welcome families for a winter on the slopes, 5th and 6th graders around the state are invited to register for their turn with a Colorado Ski Country USA Passport.
This marks the 25th year that the Passport Program has provided Colorado 5th and 6th graders deeply discounted access to skiing and snowboarding at 21 area resorts, reducing a cost barrier to trying out the sports.
There are a couple changes to the program this year. Here’s what families need to know for the 2020-2021 season:
- Passport registration is open through the end of January 2021.
- 5th and 6th Grade Passports will be valid on weekdays only (Monday-Friday) this winter.
- Passports may not be used the weekend of Thanksgiving, over winter break (December 24-January 3), on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, or on Presidents Day.
- This season, the 5th Grade Passport gives kids access to 63 days of skiing and riding for $40. The 6th Grade Passport gives kids 84 days on the slopes for $99 (This price is guaranteed through October 8).
Resorts are releasing final plans to address COVID restrictions, but the snow-blanketed slopes themselves provide an exciting socially-distant outing to share with the family. coloradoski.com
