Vail Resorts announced that Lindsey Vonn’s School of Shred is back in session. School of Shred give 5th and 6th grade students four free and unrestricted days skiing and riding at each of Vail Resorts’ Colorado ski areas – Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Vail – plus four free days at Arapahoe Basin.
Just so there’s no misunderstanding, that’s four days at each resort, so your 5th or 6th grader could possibly pick up 20 free days of skiing this season.
First-timers also receive one complimentary beginner ski or snowboard lesson and rental equipment that can be used from Dec. 2-15 or Jan. 5-31 as part of Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. Parents can enroll their 5th and 6th graders in the School of Shred program now through Sunday, Nov. 24.
To sign up to receive the School of Shred pass, a parent or guardian must present documentation proving eligibility – such as a report card, school ID indicating grade level for the current school year, or a valid birth certificate – at any resort season pass office or any Front Range Vail Resorts’ Epic pass sales location this fall. Students must be present at the time of purchase to get their photo taken for their Vail Resorts School of Shred pass.
Front Range pass sales locations include Colorado Ski and Golf (Aurora, Arvada, Colorado Springs and Littleton), Colorado Ski and Sports in Park Meadows, Boulder Ski Deals, Breeze Ski Rentals in Lakewood, and Outpost Sunsport in Fort Collins.
“Vail Resorts School of Shred program is a great way to help encourage kids to stay active by getting them outside and on the mountain,” said Lindsey Vonn, Olympic gold medalist and the School of Shred’s principal. “It’s so important for kids to get involved with sports in general at a young age. To be able to offer them the opportunity to ski and snowboard for free is something I think all Colorado kids and families should take advantage of this winter.”
