Passport for Kids - Free Skiing and Snowboarding

Winter is just around the corner. Instead of looking at winter as a time to head indoors, parents shouldn't let their fifth and sixth graders get stuck inside this winter when they could be skiing and snowboarding for FREE.

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.

DID YOU KNOW? 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.

Don't let your kids look like this during the winter:

Have them looking like this:
