How To Use The 5th and 6th Grade Passports

The Ski Utah Passport program provides "almost" free skiing and snowboarding to fifth and sixth grade students, affording participants the opportunity to experience each of Utah's uniquely different resorts.

The program is completely digital.

Guardians create an account that can be used to manage their students' information along with uploading a clear photo used for validation at Utah resorts. You will not receive any printed material from Ski Utah to participate in the program.

Apply online through SkiUtah.com/skiutahpassport. Complete the application as directed. Upload a current photo of the fifth or sixth grader and use your credit card to complete your transaction.

Why fifth and sixth graders?

Fifth graders (10 and 11 years old) are at a crucial age in their development where they are choosing (or not choosing) healthy lifestyle activities over more sedentary activities. Choosing activities that help children keep active in the winter is a high priority to Ski Utah and its members. We believe that a healthy child is a happy child and happy, active children grow up to be happy, active adults. This benefits everyone.

Utah fifth graders may have been introduced to skiing or snowboarding through Ski Utah's 4th Grade Learn to Ski and Ride program and are ready to participate on a more frequent basis. Fifth graders are also physically strong enough to participate in skiing and snowboarding at new levels making the sports an easy choice for lifetime participation.

Sixth graders (11 and 12 years old) are able to experience each of Utah's resorts one time to continue honing their skills and help them make future decisions on where to purchase season passes.

 

Who helps fund the Passport?

Ski Utah has partnered with: America First Credit Union, Level9 Sports, Richard E. and Nancy P. Marriott Foundation, PowerAde, Rossignol, Marriott Daughters Foundation, Young Automotive, Delta Air Lines, Hot Chillys, Reagan Outdoor, University of Utah Health, Smith Optics, National Park Foundation, Stio Outerwear and Ski Utah member resorts to make this program possible.
