Home Pix of the Trade Canada’s SnowPass Program Returns


The Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass program is back. Any child in grade 4 or 5 (or who was born in 2004 or 2005) is eligible for a SnowPass and with more than 150 ski areas participating in the program – including 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 in Alberta, one in Saskatchewan, two in Manitoba, 32 in Ontario, 57 in Quebec, eight in Atlantic Canada and one in the Yukon – it’s accessible to nearly everyone. Plus, it’s an unbeatable offer: it provides three lift passes at each and every one of the 150+ ski areas nationwide for Canadian kids in Grade 4 and Grade 5. For a full list of participating ski areas, visit http://www.snowpass.ca . One of the great things about the Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass program is that it encourages children to get outside during the long Canadian winter. “Skiing and snowboarding are excellent ways to get kids outside and active in winter,” says Patrick Arkeveld, president of the Canadian Ski Council. “Skiing and snowboarding are healthy and fun outdoor activities, and what’s more, they’re family sports that create great family traditions and family memories.”
