Ever wish you could be a kid again? This will definitely make you jealous: Colorado Ski Country offers 5th graders 60 days of freeskiing and riding! That's for Zero! Zilch! Nada! Over 20 Colorado resorts--like Copper Mountain, Telluride, Steamboat and more--offer 5th graders three full days of fun as part of the renowned Passport program. And, after kids graduate from fifth grade, no one's left hanging.
6th graders get a pretty awesome deal, too, receiving four days of skiing and riding at all 20 member resorts for just $99--that's 80 days of fun! That amounts to $1.24 per day. That's kind of ridiculous. There's also a rockin' deal for kiddos who have never had the chance to try skiing or snowboarding: The First Class Program provides one free lesson in January to 5th Grade Passport who have never skied or snowboarded. Resorts have excellent ski and snowboard schools, where taking a lesson from a pro will help your child get better faster.
What a perfect excuse to partake in the Coloradan tradition of skiing and riding!
Last season, Igot the chance to meet up with Colorado Ski Country's esteemed 5th grade blogger, Emma, and hang out with her rad fifth grade posse. Check out all the fun we had at Copper Mountain, all thanks to the Passport program:
While we can't turn back time, we can at least tell every 5th and 6th grader you bump into to sign up for a year of freeskiing and riding. Learn more about the Passport program here: http://www.coloradoski.com/passport.
You did a good deed.
