Every dollar counts, especially when you’re on a family vacation. If you can save a few bucks in one place, it means you can have more fun elsewhere. If you have a 5th or 6th grade child, you won’t want to miss this deal when you visit Utah to ski The Greatest Snow on Earth.

5th and 6th Grade Passport – This is a screaming deal for students in 5th or 6th grade. And, they don’t have to be Utah residents and even homeschoolers can participate.

Let me put this in perspective, the pass gives you 1-3 passes at each resort in the state for just $30 ($40 after January 31, 2014). Even if you plan to visit just one resort, the pass will likely pay for itself.

The passes offer more than lift access, they are also full of discounts on other products and services.

Here’s the official word:

“Fifth graders ski or ride three times FREE* at each of Utah's 14 resorts with Ski Utah's Fifth Grade Passport. (*$30 processing fee, $40 after January 31, 2014).

The Sixth Grade Passport allows sixth graders to ski or ride one time FREE* at each resort. (*$30 processing fee, $40 after January 31, 2014).

And... the Passport is chock-full of special deals for ski and snowboard rentals, lessons, PowerAde, and other cool stuff that will help them shred the Utah Pow!”

One thing to remember, the pass takes a few weeks to process so send in the application about three weeks in advance. Full instructions and the application are available online.
