Free skiing in Colorado for 5th grade students up to 66 days in 2018
5TH GRADE PASSPORT
Kids ski free! Colorado Ski Country USA's 5th Grade Passport Program is the only ski pass that gives your child 3 FREE DAYS of skiing and snowboarding at 22 of Colorado's premier mountains. With no parent purchase required, your child can ski all 66 days, or just a few; the 5th grade Passport opens up the best of Colorado to your child!
What if my 5th grader doesn't know how to ski or snowboard?
No problem! The Passport is for all fifth graders whether they know how to ski or not. Now is the perfect time to learn, and for those that have never skied or snowboarded before, we offer the First Class Program. This program provides one free full-day beginner, level one, group lesson and equipment rental package to 5th Grade Passport holders who have never skied NOR snowboarded. Register your 5th grader and you will be notified via email if you qualify.
Most lessons are issued for the month of January, and quantities are limited, so act quickly once you receive the email notification that the First Class Program is open. You will then need to login to your profile at passport.coloradoski.com
and select from available resorts and dates. If you do not see your desired resort listed, that resort has no more lessons available for the season. Once you have chosen your resort, you will receive a voucher from that resort, and may proceed with booking according to the instructions provided on the voucher.
