We fell in love with skiing last winter. For the first time in decades, my wife and I got on the slopes (at the urging of our kids) and rediscovered how much we loved it.
Kids really do reset the odometer and get you to re-experience life through a fresh lens. I love it. We’re headed back for our first tuns of the season at Mount Norquay next weekend (a great family hill in Banff) and I can’t wait.
Now in its 19th year, the Canadian Ski Council’s Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program allows any child in grade 4 or 5 (born in 2005 or 2006) to visit any of our participating ski areas and enjoy. If you apply for the program when your child is in grade 4, the pass is good for two whole years! This gives your child the proper opportunity to experience all types of ski areas that Canada has to offer.
For only $29.95, your child can ski at any of 150 participating ski areas three times each. That’s a lot of time on the slopes and adds up to a lot of savings. Please note that the SnowPass provides a child’s lift ticket for that particular ski area.
No matter where you live, finding a ski area in the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a piece of cake! The SnowPass is a national program and is valid at 150 ski areas across Canada, including 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 21 in Alberta, 1 in Saskatchewan, 2 in Manitoba, 29 in Ontario, 57 in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada, and 1 in the Yukon.
