The winter season is all about family and tradition. So why not start a new family tradition this year?

The winter season is all about family and tradition. So why not start a new family tradition this year?

Millions of Canadians know that skiing and snowboarding isn’t only a great way to stay healthy and active in the winter but a wonderful way to spend some quality time with the whole family. The Canadian Ski Council (CSC) wants to make sure every child has the opportunity to learn one of these popular winter sports.

“Visit any of the ski areas across Canada and you will see why skiing and snowboarding are two of Canada’s most popular winter sports,” comments CSC president Colin Chedore. “You won’t just see seasoned pros out there, but families having fun.”

For the past 14 years, the CSC has been encouraging parents to give their children the opportunity to learn skiing and snowboarding. The CSC understands that learning a new sport is not only exciting, but a great way for families to bond and children to gain confidence and pride. That’s why they created the SnowPass program.

The SnowPass gives kids in Grades 4 and 5 (born in 2000 or 2001) up to three free lift ticket coupons at each participating ski area for the entire winter; providing them with an opportunity to ski or snowboard hundreds of times over the winter season.

Registering for the SnowPass is easy and affordable. Simply visit www.snowpass.ca and choose your method of enrolment. There is a completely digital process where you can upload your child’s picture, enter your payment and their proof of age. Or you can print and fill out an application form and mail it to the Canadian Ski Council with a photo, proof of age and payment.

Either method only costs $20 plus tax (administration fees) and your child’s SnowPass will be mailed straight to your door. You can even get a form through your child’s elementary schools or from any participating Sport Chek, Sport Mart, Sports Experts and Intersport stores across Canada.
