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 $10 processing fee with the Fifth Grade Passport.
“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.
Please note, there is a $10 processing fee. Proceeds are donated to the Vermont Working Lands Enterprise Initiative.
