With snow piling up at Mt. Timothy Ski Area, families with kids in grades 4 and 5 are starting to take advantage of the Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass program.
Available online, the SnowPass provides skiing or snowboarding three times at each of 150-plus ski areas for $29.95.
“Introducing children to skiing and snowboarding at an early age gives them lifetime access to these healthy winter sports,” said Patrick Arkeveld, president and CEO of the CSC. “It keeps them away from electronics and gets them off the couch where they can be outside and active during the winter months. Better yet, skiing and snowboarding are sports kids can do with the whole family for a lifetime.”
To sign up visit www.snowpass.ca where you can upload your child’s picture, proof of age and pay the administration fee. You can also print off the application and deliver it by mail. Of the 150 ski areas 31 are in B.C., including Mt. Timothy Ski Area. For a complete list of participating ski areas and for applications visit www.snowpass.ca.
The CSC is a national, not-for-profit ski and snowboard organization founded in 1977 whose mandate is to increase participation in recreational skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing in Canada.
