Free Lift Tickets for Fourth Graders

The industry effort to encourage more participation in skiing and snowboarding kicks in during January.

In Michigan fourth-graders have the opportunity to get three free lift tickets to 20 participating Michigan ski areas under a program created by the Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA).

The “Cold is Cool” Fourth Grade Ski & Ride Passport is one of the elements of MSIA’s “Cold is Cool” program, which is dedicated to improving the health of the children in the state by offering winter outdoor activities for all Michigan kids and their families.

In order for fourth-graders to use the free lift or trail pass coupons, a paying adult must accompany them. Up to two fourth graders can ski free with each paying adult. Although the skiing is free, MSIA charges a $15 printing and shipping fee for each passport ordered.

Applications for the Fourth Grade Passport have been sent to all Michigan elementary schools. Parents and kids can also pick up the applications at participating MSIA ski shops or by visiting the group’s website at www.goskimichigan.com.

The website is chock full of great info and details designed to get you and your family on the mountain and enjoying skiing and snowboarding.

For more information on the passport program, visit the MSIA website or call the organization at (248) 620-4448.
