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.
Passport holders receive in the mail, a booklet containing coupons that are redeemed for lift tickets at participating alpine (downhill) resorts as well as coupons to participating cross-country centers to redeem for trail passes. The booklet contains 3 coupons for each participating alpine resort listed below. The number of coupons per cross-country centers vary, most offer one trail pass coupon with a few centers offering 3 coupons. Please note you do need the physical book in hand to use at the resort, Ski Vermont does not have a digital option for this program.
Once received, please insert picture of child on inside cover of the booklet and complete required signatures. Present passport at ticket window/redemption location day of for ticket.
Passport booklets must be in hand and presented at the resort ticket window to redeem the coupon for a lift ticket.

Passports are valid Dec. 1 - May 1 excluding blackout dates which are listed below (subject to change) and printed on the back of each resort page in the booklet.
