Why only 4th graders?
Fourth grade is the perfect age to learn to ski and snowboard. They have the coordination, skills, and muscle development to be able to pick up on the skills as well as adhering and following safety information. One age had to be chosen and 4th grade was the decision. We are excited that we are able to offer this program to all 4th graders.
How will I know what the restrictions are at each area?
You will need to reach out to your local area to find out what restrictions, if any, they have.
When should I expect to receive the 4th Grade Passport Pass after applying?
Regrettably, due to the overwhelming response to this program, it may be an average of two weeks before you receive the pass. Note that all participating areas are sent a list of applicants on a weekly basis so they know who is in process. Thank you for your patience and participation in this program.
