Colorado is for Kids

We’ve mentioned Steamboat’s “Kids Ski Free” program in past blogs, and if you’ve spoken with us over the phone, chances are you know about the details. Now, we have some information you might NOT know about yet, and it’s just for your 5th and 6th graders.

Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA), a not-for-profit trade association representing the Colorado Ski industry, has created a passport program for all 5th and 6th graders, not just limited to residents of Colorado.

What does this mean for my vacation?

Simply stated, all 5th graders are able to enjoy 3 days of skiing or snowboarding, completely free, at each of the participating 20 member resorts. Further, all 6th graders are eligible to ski 4 days at each of the 20 member resorts for just $105 if registering before November 30th, 2017, and just $125 if registering before January 31st, 2017. The member resorts include Steamboat, Aspen, Telluride, Copper Mountain, Winter Park, and Arapahoe Basin, just to name a few.

Why was this program created?

Colorado is without a doubt associated with clean air, an active lifestyle, and of course, the Rocky Mountains. Nothing ties these three things together better than skiing and snowboarding. Colorado Ski Country USA wants nothing more than to remove the barriers to mountain recreation, especially for kids. Not only will this program encourage kids to explore a new activity, but also help them remain active during the winter months.

Are there other benefits?

Although there are only a limited number of these options available, kids are eligible for free beginner lesson and even a free rental from Christy Sports.

You’re all finished! Now all you have to do is book your family’s dream vacation with Simply Steamboat and get ready for the ultimate ski trip.
