Ski Vermont's 5th Grade Passport Program

Fifth Graders Ski FREE

Skiing and riding are magical sports and that can change lives, supporting healthier decisions and bonding experiences that can last a lifetime. There is no better time to fall in love with snow-covered mountains than during the final years of care-free adolescence. To help our youth get to the hills, we offer participating fifth graders up to 88 free days of skiing and riding at Vermont's alpine and Nordic resorts.

A Parent's Testimonial

"My daughter was in 5th grade last year and simply LOVED using the passport - as did our pocketbook. I recently mailed in my son's information who is in 5th grade this year so we can get to Vermont and get out in the fluffy white stuff! Again, many thanks for an excellent program!" - Mary Margaret Conners, New York.

Ski Vermont Gives Back

This season marks the fourth year in which the program will also enrich the community by donating proceeds to Keep Local Farms.

Keep Local Farms is an education and contribution program that connects consumers with local dairy farmers and encourages the purchase of healthy, local foods which sustain the working landscape for future generations.

When Will I Receive My Passport to Fun?

Passports will not be mailed until late November. They are valid Dec 1-May 1 and mailed just prior to Dec 1. PLEASE ALLOW 2 WEEKS FOR PROCESSING during the season.

How Does it Work?

Passport holders receive a booklet containing coupons for free alpine lift tickets or cross-country trail passes at each resort. (You'll get three coupons for alpine resorts, and either one or three coupons for Nordic centers, depending on the resort). Passport holders need to be accompanied by a ticket holding adult and each adult may bring up to two Passport holders. Passport coupons are not valid with any other offer or discount.
