NEWS RELEASE
CANADIAN SKI COUNCIL
*************************
Saving this season just became easier! One of Canada’s easiest ways to get kids healthy and active this winter is now available. The SnowPass is an unbeatable offer: it provides three lift passes at each of the 155+ ski areas nation-wide for Canadian kids in Grade 4 and Grade 5.

What’s better than giving your fourth or fifth grader a lift ticket? How about providing them with the opportunity to get outside, be active and enjoy Canada’s winter wonderland? The Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass is a great opportunity for your nine or ten-year-old to try a new sport and get them outside during the winter months.

Studies show that a child who spends an hour on the slopes can burn approximately 400 calories. So not only are skiing and snowboarding great winter sports to participate in together as a family, they also a great way to get some exercise and fresh air during the cold winter months.

Make this year the year that your family gets away from the tv and video games and get outside and enjoy a new winter tradition; skiing and snowboarding. 

Anyone in grade 4 or five (or those born in 2007 or 2008) is eligible for the Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass. The Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass provides your 9 or 10-year-old with 3 lift passes at each of the 156 ski areas participating across Canada, including 31 in British Columbia, 24 in Alberta, 1 in Saskatchewan, 3 in Manitoba, 30 in Ontario, 58 in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada and 1 in the Yukon. That’s over 450 lift passes!
