January is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, and there’s no better way for 5th and 6th graders to learn than through the Ski Free Passport Program from Ski Idaho.

The Ski Free Passport Program enables 5th graders to obtain a free three day lift ticket to 18 different ski spots, while 6th graders receive a free two day lift ticket to 16 ski slopes in Idaho. With only a $15 application fee, this is the best, and cheapest, way for your kiddo to feel comfortable on the slopes.

The best news? You can apply for a passport in several states without being a resident, including Colorado and Utah, so that your children can experience skiing across the nation!

Applications must be completed online, and you must pay the $15 fee through PayPal. With the pass, it is free to ski at the participating mountains, except for Bald Mountain which charges an additional $20 (Dollar Mountain is free).

Your child can ski for free two or three times, depending on their age, at each participating resort. You must show the passport to receive the free entry, either a printed version or on your smartphone.
