COLORADO SPRINGS – Loveland Ski area woke up Thursday morning to a fresh dusting of snow, and now is the time to get ready for the ski and snowboard season. For fifth graders, that means getting a free ski passport.

Colorado Ski County USA’s Fifth Grade Passport Program gives fifth graders three free days of skiiing and snowboarding at 22 different ski areas across the state, without parents having to purchase a ticket. Some of those ski areas include Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Mountain, Copper Mountain, Loveland, Monarch, Steamboat, Winter Park and Wolf Creek.

Passport registration can be found on the Colorado Ski County webpage. To get a passport, parents will need to have a passport worthy photo of their kid on their computer, and a document, like a previous years report card or school schedule. Some fifth graders may have gotten a Passport brochure from school that has a unique registration code that can also be used.

Sixth graders can work on the skills they have picked up with a passport of their own. The Sixth Grade Passport Program provides kids with four days of skiiing or snowboarding at each of the 22 members ski areas just for $105.

Questions about the Passport Program can be directed to or by calling 303-866-9707.
