Attention Grade 4s and 5s! Ski and Snowboard at each participating area 3 times for only $29.95

Want to ski and ride this winter? The Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPassTM lets you ski and ride three times at EACH participating ski area for $29.95. That’s a lot of skiing and snowboarding right across Canada!

To join in, you need to be in grade 4 or 5 (or 9 or 10 years old) and live in Canada. Every skier and snowboarder is welcome, especially if you’re a beginner.

You only need to apply once for a SnowPasstm and it’s valid until the end of grade 5. This means if you apply in grade 4 the pass is valid for two years.

Please note: Since ski areas sign up to participate every year, we’ll let you know if any resort leaves the program before the season starts.
