Idaho fifth and sixth graders can ski free at most of Idaho’s resorts. All they need is a $20 ski passport to get two or three ski free days of lift tickets at participating resorts across the state.
Fifth graders can ski or ride three times for free at each participating Ski Idaho resort, and sixth graders can ski or ride two times for free at each participating Ski Idaho resort. The passport adds on deals for equipment rentals, lessons and other activities. Some ski resorts offer specials for parents or siblings accompanying the passport holder.
To get the Ski Idaho Passports, kids can either print out an application to mail in or apply online. Passports cost $20, although you can get a $5 off coupon. The Ski Idaho Passports are available through March 2014.
The Ski Idaho fifth and sixth grade Passports work for free lift tickets at Brundage Mountain, Grand Targhee, Kelly Canyon, Lookout Pass, Lost Trail, Magic Mountain, Pebble Creek, Silver Mountain, Soldier Mountain, Tamarack and Dollar Mountain at Sun Valley. Upgrades to Sun Valley’s Bald Mountain are available for $20 per day. Fifth grade passports are also valid at Bogus Basin, Schweitzer Mountain, Pomerelle and three Washington ski resorts—49 Degrees North, Bluewood and Mt. Spokane. Some resorts have blackout dates, so check the Ski Idaho website before you go.
