One of Canada’s easiest ways to get kids healthy and active this winter is now available. The Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass is available online.

It’s an unbeatable offer: free skiing and snowboarding for Canadian kids in Grade 4 and Grade 5.”Introducing children to skiing and snowboarding at an early age gives them lifetime access to these healthy winter sports,” says Patrick Arkeveld, president and CEO 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.”

The Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass gives kids in grades 4 and 5 (born in 2002 or 2003)  three free lift tickets at each participating ski area all across Canada for the entire winter; providing them with an opportunity to ski or snowboard hundreds of times over the winter season.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 $29.95 including taxes.

Signing up online is the quickest and easiest way to apply for your child’s Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass card. SnowPass cards will be sent straight to you beginning in mid-November before the Dec. 1 SnowPass season start date!

SnowPass applications are also available through elementary schools and inside participating Sport Chek stores.The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a national program and is valid at over 150 ski areas across Canada including 33 ski areas in British Columbia.Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass information and applications are available online at www.snowpass.ca or www.passeportdesneiges.ca.
