There's still time to apply to get a free Colorado 5th Grade Passport from Colorado Ski Country USA. Your child can get three days of skiing or snowboarding at 20 ski resorts in the state of Colorado.
The application deadline is January 31, 2014. When filling out the form, one does not need an Application Code. Just leave it blank. It's for Colorado children filling them out at their school and used for tracking purposes.
It takes about two weeks for forms to be processed once they are filled out. The passports are then mailed out via USPS First Class Mail. Passports cannot be picked up at any location.
In January, those who have never skied or snowboarded before can take a free never-ever lessons which includes rentals.
The 5th Grade Passport does not include any Vail Resorts, Inc. ski resort. They include Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, and Breckenridge. Vail Resorts has the School of Shred Pass which must be applied for in-person through an event location in Colorado in the fall.
Participating ski resorts include: Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain,
Buttermilk, Copper Mountain, Crested Butte, Durango Mountain, Eldora,
Howelsen Hill, Loveland, Monarch, Powderhorn, Ski Cooper, Snowmass, Ski
Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista), Steamboat, Sunlight Mountain Resort,
Telluride, Winter Park Resort, and Wolf Creek Ski Area.
The parents of passports can also get great deals on their lift tickets. Just go the the 5th Grade Passport website and look for the coupons in the pass section.
Those with 6th Graders can also get a passport. They can be purchased for $99 through the same website. They can get four days of skiing and snowboarding at the same ski resorts the 5th Grade Passport is valid at.
Apply for a 5th or 6th Grade Passport at Colorado Ski County USA.
