As past members of the Passport programs through CSCUSA, we can attest to how easy it is to participate and what a great deal it really is. If you have 5th and 6th graders, there’s no reason not to sign up for the programs.
The CSCUSA 5th Grade Passport gives fifth graders three days of free skiing at each of the 20 CSCUSA participating member resorts. The 6th Grade Passport gives sixth graders four days of skiing at the same twenty resorts for $99, which amounts to 80 days on the slopes for less than $1.25 each day.
CSCUSA will also offer First Class Lessons to complement the 5th Grade Passport Program. First Class provides fifth graders who are new to skiing and snowboarding the opportunity to learn the sport from some of the best instructors in the industry.
Registered 5th Grade Passport holders who have never skied nor snowboarded, and are considered “never-evers,” are eligible to receive a free ski or snowboard lesson and rental equipment during the month of January, which is also Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.
Fifth graders who qualify for First Class have the option of 17 different resorts to have their introductory experience on snow. Advance reservations are required for First Class Lessons.
To register your kids for the Passport Programs and the First Class Program, and for more details, go to www.ColoradoSki.com/Passport or call 303-866-9707.
