Winter is finally here, so be sure to get your kids active and outside!
Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the weather
As we all know, winter is the tough time of year for kids to be active; the days are shorter and the temperature is hovering in the freezer zone. It can be hard to motivate the kids to step away from the screens and get active outside. Have no fears, the Canadian Ski Council (CSC) has a program to help out! The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass Program is an affordable way to get your child off the couch and on the slopes.
Now in its 19th year, the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program allows any child in Grade 4 or 5 (born in 2005 or 2006) to visit any 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.
Thanks to all the options in this region, finding a ski area in the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a piece of cake. Not only that, 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.

Founded in 1977, the Canadian Ski Council is a national, not-for-profit ski and snowboard organization whose mandate is to increase participation in recreational skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing in Canada.
