5th Grade/6th Grade Passport Program Rules

The Colorado 5th and 6th Grade Passport Program provides each 5th and 6th grade passholder with a digital non-transferable, non-refundable pass which entitles the pass holder to whom a pass is issued to obtain complimentary one-day lift tickets, subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, at participating Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) member resorts. The 5th and 6th Grade Passport is only valid on weekdays for the 2020-2021 season. The Passport Program is not valid on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) and on holidays. The holiday blackout dates include: 11/26/2020-11/27/2020,12/24/2020-1/3/2021, 1/18/2021, 2/15/2021.  

All CSCUSA participating resorts reserve the right to withdraw from the program at any time and to restrict or prohibit lift tickets obtained using the Passport Program from being used in conjunction with other resort offers or from being used by participants in special events or races or competitions of any kind.

The following CSCUSA resorts are participating for the 2020-2021 season: Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, Cooper, Copper Mountain, Echo Mountain, Eldora, Granby Ranch, Hesperus, Howelsen Hill, Kendall Mountain, Loveland Ski Area, Monarch Mountain, Powderhorn, Purgatory, Snowmass, Steamboat, Sunlight, Telluride, and Winter Park.

The passes are valid on weekdays at participating CSCUSA member resorts during the 2020-2021 ski season. The 5th grade digital pass may be used to obtain no more than three (3) complimentary one-day child lift tickets at each participating CSCUSA resort during the winter season and is subject to blackout dates. The 6th grade digital pass may be used to obtain no more than four (4) complimentary one-day child lift tickets at each participating CSCUSA resort during the winter season and is subject to blackout dates. One lift ticket may be obtained per day for either pass. The digital Pass or use of the digital Pass or of lift tickets obtained with the digital Pass may not be transferred or re-sold to any other person, including family members or relatives. It is a violation of Colorado law to resell lift tickets. CSCUSA will immediately revoke a digital Pass if the holder transfers use of the Pass, or of any lift ticket obtained with the Pass, to another person, for monetary consideration or otherwise.

The child passholder must appear at the lift ticket window each time the holder wishes to obtain a lift ticket. One ticket may be obtained per day. While the purchase of an adult ticket is not required, individual or groups of children must be supervised while at the resort.

All coupons provided to the Passholder are intended for the child to whom the Pass is issued, unless otherwise noted on the coupon. Passholders and their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) are responsible for proper use of the pass at all times. CSCUSA will revoke and cancel a Pass without notice for any misuse. In the event of pass misuse and cancellation, CSCUSA may recover damages to CSCUSA and/or to participating CSCUSA member resorts arising from pass misuse, including reasonable attorney’s fees. CSCUSA reserves the right to modify or cancel either pass program at any time and to modify or cancel all valid passes at any time with or without notice. CSCUSA is not responsible for expenses incurred or opportunities foregone by Passholders if CSCUSA modifies or cancels either pass program.  

All Passholders agree to comply with all rules of participating CSCUSA member resorts and with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Colorado Ski Safety Act. An individual is eligible for each Pass only once. Individuals repeating all or a portion of the 5th or 6th grade do not qualify for a repeat Pass. If an applicant provides any false or inaccurate information in his or her application, a Pass will not be activated. If a Pass has already been activated, it will be revoked if false or inaccurate information has been provided. All information provided in the application is subject to verification by CSCUSA. All information provided in the application becomes the property of CSCUSA. Information provided by applicants may be used by CSCUSA and its member resorts for verification, marketing and research purposes.

Passholders who have obtained a commemorative passport card may not obtain lift ticket access solely by presenting the ticket card at the window. The lift ticket offices must be able to verify that resort visits are available using the digital passport system before issuing a lift ticket.
