4TH & 5TH GRADE SNOWSPORTS PASSPORT
2017-18 4th & 5th Grade Snowsports Passport
Passports are not yet on sale. In the meantime, you can sign up for our e-newsletter or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay in the loop.
Each Ski New Hampshire alpine and cross country ski area member contributes one free lift ticket or trail pass for your fourth or fifth grader to enjoy New Hampshire's scenic ski trails this winter. That's 34 days (or nights) that your child can get outside and explore this season for just $30 upon grade verification. This program is open to 4th and 5th graders from near and far--not just New Hampshire residents!
New this year, the 4th & 5th Grade Snowsports Passport will be delivered to your email inbox as a digital product once you've provided proof of eligibility. But why? For one, you'll get your Passport much faster, but we also want to cut down on our paper waste. In the past, we would print booklets to meet demands, but would always end up with extras that would go in the recycling bin. Now, you have the choice to print only the vouchers you intend to use. We do ask that you print the vouchers that you want to use and bring them to the resorts with you. Your child will still be asked to present the voucher and sign it for verification.
Ski NH donates a percentage of passport sales to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Hampshire. This organization has brought joy to more than 500 children who have a life-threatening medical condition.
Please note: Pricing, pass availability and restrictions are subject to change at any time and without notice.

Limit one (1) passport per 4th or 5th grade student. Any 4th or 5th grader can apply, regardless of where they live.
