Kimberley kids can ski for free

SnowPass program gives three free lift tickets at participating resorts

Grade 4 and 5 kids are eligible for SnowPasses.

Grade 4 and 5 students (born in 2002 and 2003) have an opportunity this year for free lift tickets at participating resorts across Canada, including in this region.

All local resorts are participating — Fernie Alpine Resort, Panorama, Kicking Horse and right here at home at Kimberley Alpine Resort.

It’s all through the SnowPass program, which provides three free lift tickets at each participating resort as a way to introduce children to skiing and snowboarding, and promote a healthy winter lifestyle.

All you have to do is visit where applications are available. You can upload your child’s picture and enter your payment (one-time registration fee of $29.95). If you are not comfortable with uploading information, you can print an application form and mail it.

If you are in Grade 4, your pass will be eligible for two years.

The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a national program and is valid at over 150 ski areas across Canada including 33 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 ski areas in Alberta, two ski areas in Saskatchewan, two ski areas in Manitoba, 34 ski areas in Ontario, 53 ski areas in Quebec, eight in Atlantic Canada and one in the Yukon.
