So evidently it’s pretty cool being in 4th grade in Minnesota, because you can get a skiing deal just for being a 4th grader!
Minnesota Ski Areas Association 4th Grade Passport Program
The Minnesota Ski Areas Association offers a 4th Grade Passport Program so kids and their families have a chance to play on MN Slopes this winter for FREE. The goal is for families to enjoy winter, have fun and stay healthy together.
Every 4th grader has the opportunity to ski for free. All Minnesota Ski Areas are participating.
There is a cost of $34.95 to cover processing, printing and shipping, and then your 4th grader receives a special e-pass which includes a minimum of two free lift tickets at every Minnesota member area. (This cost went up from $24.95 last year.)
Some of the ski areas participating include Wild Mountain, Giants Ridge, Elm Creek, Spirit Mountain, Afton Alps and many more.
Note that there will be no limit to the to the number of 4th grade passports available. Passports will be available to obtain through February so get yours now!
