The Canadian Ski Council could not be more excited winter is upon us.

While not everyone is happy to be going outside this winter, the CSC has something for grades 4 and 5 students that will have them screaming for more snow.

The Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass program is in its 19th year, providing nine and 10-year-olds with the chance to ski or snowboard three times total at each of the 150-plus participating ski areas across Canada.

The program costs $29.95, and offers literally hundreds of opportunities to ski or snowboard.

The pass is good for two years upon signup.

With the season far from over, there’s plenty of winter left.

Signing up for a SnowPass is available by visiting www.snowpass.ca with an upload of your child’s picture and proof of age and method of payment, and a SnowPass will be mailed to you directly.

The Grade 4 and 5 SnowPass is a national program and includes 31 ski areas in B.C., 21 in Alberta, one in Saskatchewan, two in Manitoba, 29 in Ontario, 57 in Quebec, eight in Atlantic Canada and one in the Yukon.
