Ski Utah Fifth and Sixth Grade Passport Applications Now Available Online 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - Winter is just around the corner. Don’t let your fifth and sixth graders get stuck inside this winter when they could be skiing and snowboarding all season long for free. New this season, the Ski Utah Fifth and Sixth Grade Passport Application can be submitted online making access to Utah’s 14 resorts even easier.

Using the Passport, fifth graders can ski three times free (42 total days) at each of Utah’s 14 ski resorts and sixth graders can enjoy one day (14 total days) at each resort. Passport holders may also choose to receive a complimentary subscription to either SKI or TransWorld Snowboarding magazine. Passports can be acquired for a $25 processing fee which includes shipping, handling and procurement of 500 inches of The Greatest Snow on Earth®.

Parents looking for a more cost-effective way to ski with their fifth and sixth grade students should take advantage of the new Yeti Pass, good for one day of skiing at every Utah resort for $499 ($35 per day).

“Participating in skiing and snowboarding keeps students happy and active all winter long,” exclaimed Ski Utah Marketing Director Raelene Davis. “The Passport is the most affordable way for students to get introduced to this incredible lifetime sport.”
