Make This Holiday One the Kids Will Not Forget

Pick up a SnowPass for Your 4th or 5th Grader and Give Them the Gift of Skiing and Snowboarding This Season

WOODBRIDGE, ON--(Marketwired - December 22, 2014) -  The holiday season is upon us. Wondering what to do with the kids this holiday to keep them busy? Well, worry no more! The Canadian Ski Council has the ticket, literally. The CSC's Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass provides children in grade 4 and 5 with three lift tickets at each of the 150 participating ski areas across Canada for just $29.95. That's enough skiing and snowboarding to keep them busy all winter long!

Skiing and snowboarding are two of Canada's hottest winter sports and millions of parents know that it's the best way to keep their little bundles of joy active and entertained during the winter. "Learning a new sport is an excellent opportunity for families to not only bond," comments Patrick Arkeveld, President and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council, "it's also an exhilarating and healthy way for children to gain self-confidence, pride, and a great way to stay fit and active."

With the holidays coming up, the Canadian Ski Council understands that budgets are tight. That's why for the past 18 years we have been dedicated to making it easy and affordable for all parents to get their kids started in skiing and snowboarding.

The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a national program and can be used at over 150 ski areas across Canada, including 31 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 in Alberta, 1 in Saskatchewan, 2 in Manitoba, 32 in Ontario, 57 in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada, and 1 in the Yukon. So no matter where you live, everyone can take advantage of this fantastic offer. To see a full list of participating ski areas, please visit www.snowpass.ca.
