How much does the passport cost?
It is $30 for the passport, which has 30 vouchers included. There is no additional cost to redeem the vouchers for lift tickets unless your child needs rental equipment or other products that the ski area offers.
Are there additional offers with the passport?
Are passports available for out-of-state students?
Yes, so long as the students are in the 4th or 5th grade.
What constitutes a proof of grade document?
We accept the following: a current report card, a progress report, a letter from the school stating your child is currently enrolled in the 4th or 5th grade, or a screenshot of your school account login with your child's current grade level. If your child participated in last year's program (as a 4th grader) we can usually verify that he/she is in 5th grade via our records. Any verification submitted to Ski NH must have this year's date on it in order to be considered. Valid screenshots can include the date on your monitor if your online system does not show the date. If your child is homeschooled and does not have this type of verification, please reach out to Passports@SkiNH.com.
How do I submit proof of grade?
The easiest & fastest way to send verification is via email. Take a photo or scan of your child's proof of grade as outlined above and email it to us at Passports@SkiNH.com. You can also photocopy the proof and mail it to us at PO Box 521, Conway, NH 03818. However, this method does take longer for us to process.
How long does it take to receive my passport after I have made a purchase?
Usually, we are able to process passport orders within 2-3 business days after receiving your proof of grade document. However, this may be delayed when they first go on sale due to a high volume of orders.
What if I haven't received my passport vouchers via email?
If you have submitted your proof of grade, emails will arrive from Inntopia on behalf of Ski NH but they will be from "Notifications". Please check your spam folder before contacting Ski NH. If you have received emails from Passports@SkiNH.com regarding how to use your vouchers, it means that your vouchers have been processed. If your vouchers are not in your spam folder, please call 603-745-9396 or email Passports@SkiNH.com. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm.
How do I print my vouchers?
Once you've received your confirmation email, look for a blue link near the top of the email (above your child's name and address) that says "PRINT VOUCHERS." This link will connect to a PDF of your 30 vouchers. Do not click the links on the mountain names within the email to access your vouchers.
Do I have to print all of the vouchers? If so, why?
You do need to print the vouchers that you intend to redeem. The PDF does include 30 vouchers, which will print on 30 separate pages. If you do not intend to use all of the vouchers, select only the page number for that voucher in your printer settings. In order to be sure that the passports are being used appropriately, we ask that the students sign the passport voucher when it is redeemed at the ticket window. This helps us to verify that the program is not being abused.
If this does not answer your passport question, please give us a call at 603-745-9396 or email us at Passports@SkiNH.com. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm, but we will do our best to assist you as soon as possible.
