SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - Parents who fear they have missed the opportunity to turn in their child’s 5th Grade Passport or 6th Grade SnowPass application should no longer worry as Ski Utah has extended the original Jan. 31, 2010 deadline to Feb. 15, 2010. Parents can avoid an additional processing fee by submitting their student’s application before Feb. 15. With more than two and a half months left of the 2009-10 winter season, there is still plenty of time to take advantage of this wonderful program.
The Ski Utah Fifth Grade Passport and Sixth Grade SnowPass are the best ways for fifth and sixth graders to experience The Greatest Snow on Earth®. Fifth graders can ski three times free at each of Utah’s 13 world-class resorts utilizing the Passport. Sixth graders can continue to enjoy one day of free snowriding at each Utah ski resort with the SnowPass.
Nearly 1 in 10 of the world’s school children are overweight and the number of overweight adolescents in the U.S. has tripled in the past two decades. Overweight conditions in children and adolescents are generally caused by lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns or a combination of the two.
More information on these programs and downloadable applications are available at SkiUtah.com. Other questions may be answered by emailing Ski Utah at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 801.534.1779.
Each year 8,000 Utah students participate in the Ski Utah Passport and SnowPass programs thanks to support from KSL-TV, KSL News Radio, Zions Bank, Richard E. and Nancy P. Marriott Foundation, The Truth About Tobacco, Powerade, Pictureline, Ski’N’See, Canyon Sports, Rossignol and Burton.
