SKI NY Passport Program for 2020-21

The SKI NY Passport Program-Kids Ski Free is back for the 2020-21 Season! As with a lot of things the program is a different this year.

Kids Ski Free for third and fourth graders will be valid during Monday-Friday’s only at participating ski areas, no weekends and no holiday periods which are Christmas week (12/23-1/3/21), MLK Day(1/18/21) and President’s week (2/13 – 2/21/21).

We will not be offering the Learn to Ski and Ride Program for this season due to ski school restrictions outlined by the NYS Ski Guidelines for COVID-19 protocols.

The program is open to 3rd and 4th graders and reservations at ski areas may be required before you and your child(ren) go skiing with the Passport.

The program offers free skiing for your third and fourth graders midweek, this is designed to avoid weekend and holiday capacity restrictions and provide a healthy activity mid-week for you and your child(ren)

This year the Passport is a digital “card” that you can show on your phone or print off to take with you to the ski area and will include a photo of your child that you upload during the application on the Passport

Sign up for the program and participating ski areas coming the week of 11/30!

Send us an email to be notified when you can apply at!

SKI NY Statement on COVID-19

The safety and health of guests and those who work at our member ski areas are a priority of SKI NY. We know there are many questions about what measures ski areas are taking in regards to the Coronavirus.

Measures include:

  • Monitoring updates on COVID-19 from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York State Government and the WHO (World Health Organization). Based on this, SKI/NY will recommend to its member ski areas on what action may need to be taken that is necessary for the continued safety of ski area staff and guests.
  • Encouraging to ski areas that they instruct any of their staff who feel ill to remain at home.
  • Encouraging to ski areas to provide hand sanitizers and wipes in all dining and bar areas of the facility as well as their rental facilities.
  • Encouraging to ski areas to wipe down any rental equipment after use with disinfecting wipes (such as Clorox Wipes as recommended).
  • Suggesting that ski areas to work with their guests who may have questions about the facility and cleanliness policy.
  • In addition, Governor Cuomo has issued an Executive Order banning gatherings of more than 500 and limiting those under 500 to 50% of capacity. Therefore most New York Ski Areas will continue to operate but there may be certain base facilities and services that will be closed or limited. Please check the website of the ski area you are planning to travel to. You can locate your ski area at

SKI NY will continue to monitor news and State Governmental Departments in regards to best practices. Should you have any further questions or concerns please reach out to SKI/NY President Scott Brandi at

SKI NY wish you safe and enjoyable skiing and riding!
