SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – This week, Utah got more snow than it would ever expect in a typical February.
It’s great news when your slogan is “The Greatest Snow on Earth.”
Skiing can be a pricey family activity, though, but there is a deal to save you money on the slopes.
Ski Utah’s 5th & 6th Grade Passport program “provides ‘almost’ free skiing and snowboarding to 5th and 6th grade students, affording participants the opportunity to experience each of Utah’s uniquely different resorts,” according to skiutah.com.
The passport allows 5th graders to get three lift tickets to 15 of Utah’s resorts. Sixth graders get one lift ticket. Both passports cost $49.
It makes learning to ski more accessible for elementary school kids.
“We’re now getting anecdotal stories from people who did the 5th & 6th Grade Passport and now have kids and are putting their kids through the 5th & 6th Grade Passport,” said Paul Marshall with Ski Utah. “It’s becoming this program that’s become generational and growing the sport, and we’re very proud of it.”
Due to the pandemic, there are certain blackout dates and restrictions in place. Click here for more information on those restrictions.
