5th and 6th Grade Passport Program
Because of the interest in the program, the registration period for the 5th and 6th Grade Passport has been extended through the end of February.
The Passport Program is the best way to get students on the slopes! With 3-4 days of skiing at 21 participating ski areas, the Passport is dedicated to getting Colorado's kids on the slopes.
While weekends and holidays are not available with the Passport this season, we believe the Passport is a great product for your students to enjoy on teacher in-service days and over Spring Break.
5th Grade Educators: Please forward this link to your 5th Grade Families.
6th Grade Educators: Please forward this link to your 6th Grade Families.
FAQs: For FAQ’s and answers to most questions about the 5th and 6th Grade Program, click here.
