Snowpass deal for Grades 4 and 5 students

Winter is just around the corner. And rather than hiding inside for the next few months, why not get outside and enjoy winter this year by hitting the slopes with your Grade 4 and 5 children?

Skiing and snowboarding are two of Canada’s most popular winter sports and one of the best ways to stay active this winter. Don’t let your kids hibernate this season. Once they feel the pride and exhilaration of zooming down the hills they won’t want to stay home and play video games.

Keeping your children healthy and active should never be a strain on your pockets and the Canadian Ski Council along with ski areas from across the country want to help. Pick up a Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass and find hundreds of ways to save this winter.

Your child’s SnowPass is valid from Dec. 1 to the end of the ski season. For the first time ever, the SnowPass is now national and can be used at over 150 ski areas all across Canada.

So this winter there is only one reason we should be finding you in front of the computer. SnowPass registration can now be completed online. Just visit www.snowpass.ca, complete the registration form, upload a photo, proof of age/grade and pay a small administration fee of $29.95 including taxes.  Applications are open to anyone in grade 4 or 5 (or who was born in 2002 and 2003).

Your child’s very own SnowPass will be mailed straight to your door giving you hundreds of ways to save this season.

What’s better than getting your child out and active this winter? The savings. The SnowPass program offers you hundreds of opportunities to get your children out of the house and onto the slopes.

Learn more about the Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass online at www.snowpass.ca or www.passeportdesneiges.ca. You can also pick up an application form from your child’s Grade 4 or 5 elementary school teachers or at participating Sport Chek stores Canada-wide. This year’s program begins Dec.1, 2012.

For more information on the grade 4 and 5 SnowPass program, contact Patrick Arkeveld, President and CEO, Canadian Ski Council, tel: 705-445-9140, e-mail: parkeveld@skicanada.org, web: www.snowpass.ca.

The Canadian Ski Council was founded in 1977 to work on the behalf of the Canadian snowsports industry to increase participation in recreational snowboarding, alpine and cross-country skiing in Canada.
