Fifth Grade Passport

The 5th Grade Passport for the 2020-21 season is not yet on sale. We are working with our member resorts as they formulate winter operation plans for the 2020-2021 season that are compliant with federal & state guidelines and requirements related to the COVID-19 pandemic to help keep guests and employees healthy. We anticipate we will have updated information in the next several weeks.

Fifth Graders Ski and Ride for Free in Vermont

Please note there continue to be no changes to the original terms and conditions related to 2019-2020 Ski Vermont products as stated at the time of purchase. Due to the way our highly discounted products and programs are redeemed at our participating member resorts, our products remain non-transferable and non-refundable, partial or otherwiseAs is the nature with most discounted items and as stated in the terms and conditions, all sales are final and only valid through the season they are issued for, however or whenever that might come to an end.   

Ski season is weather-dependent and never finite to begin with, and we had a sizable window - early November to mid-March - in which to use this year's passes. Even in a season not cut short by a global health crisis, many areas cease lift operations by the end of March. Given the circumstances, and how heavily discounted the 5th Grade Passport is to begin with we hope customers will understand. Thank you for supporting Vermont ski areas, and we hope you and yours are well during this difficult time.

*Note we made an exception for completely unused Fifth Grade Passport purchases made 2/24/2020 or after. We offered a full refund only option. In order to be eligible for this refund the fully UNUSED product had to be mailed back to Ski Vermont by April 16, 2020 and again must have been purchased 2/24/2020 or after to be eligible.  

The 5th Grade Passport Open Doors to Exploring Vermont Resorts

Skiing and snowboarding are magical sports and that can change lives, supporting healthier decisions and experiences that can last a lifetime. There is no better time to fall in love with snow-covered mountains of Vermont than during a student's 5th grade year. To help our youth get to the hills, we offer participating fifth graders up to 88 days of skiing and riding at Vermont’s alpine and cross country resorts for just a $20 processing fee. 

Want a reminder for when our 20/21 passport will go on sale? Enter your email address to receive the reminder we will send later this fall once the 5th Grade Passport is available for purchase. 2020-21 Passports are not yet on sale, but we will update as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and continued support.   

 A Parent's Testimonial

“My daughter was in 5th grade last year and simply LOVED using the passport - as did our pocketbook. I recently mailed in my son's information who is in 5th grade this year so we can get to Vermont and get out in the fluffy white stuff! Again, many thanks for an excellent program!" - Mary Margaret Conners, New York.
