The only thing better than hitting the slopes with your kids is knowing they are doing it for FREE!
Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) announced that its popular 5th and 6th Grade Passport programs are available for the 2010-11 ski season. The Passport programs introduce 5th and 6th Grade kids to skiing and snowboarding by making it easy for those families to access the slopes of Colorado’s legendary resorts. Each of the 21 CSCUSA participating resorts provide three free days of skiing for 5th Grade Passport holders, and four days of skiing for $99 for 6th Grade Passport holders.
The CSCUSA 5th Grade Passport is available to all 5th graders and provides three days of free skiing at each CSCUSA participating member resort. The 6th Grade Passport is packed with value by providing four days of skiing at the same participating CSCUSA resorts for $99, equaling 84 ski days for less than $1.20 a day.
New for the 2010-11 season, CSCUSA is introducing First Class. Available for 5th graders who have never tried skiing or snowboarding, First Class provides registered 5th Grade Passport holders one free ski or snowboard lesson, including rental equipment, anytime during January Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.
The Passport programs can be fully processed online at www.ColoradoSki.com/Passport. Resorts participating in the Passports for 2010-11 include: Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, Copper Mountain, Crested Butte, Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort, Echo Mountain, Eldora, Howelsen Hill, Loveland, Monarch, Powderhorn, Ski Cooper, Snowmass, SolVista, Steamboat, Sunlight, Telluride, Winter Park and Wolf Creek.
