Learn to Ski & Ride Passport – Just for Kids!

For beginners to the sport of skiing or riding, the Kids Learn to Ski or Ride Passport offers each passport holder one beginner lift ticket, one beginner lesson, and rental gear at each of I Ski NY’s participating ski areas. Each ticket, lesson, and rental can only be used once, but I Ski NY has 20 participating ski areas – so there’s ample opportunity to spend up to 20 days on the hill on only one passport.

Kids Ski Free Passport – For Kids and their Parents!

When you purchase a Kids Ski Free Passport, your little ones get three lift tickets at each of I Ski NY’s participating ski areas to use during the 2019/20 ski season with the purchase of an adult ticket. This is a great option for kids who have their own gear, or access to gear, and know how to ski or ride already.

Discover NY Ski Day – For all!

January 16, 2020 is Discover NY Ski Day! Skiers and riders of all ages and abilities can enjoy a day on the slopes for as little as $12 per lift ticket. Learn to ski or ride packages include rentals and lessons.  Ticket sales for this program will start in mid-December.

Learn to ski and enjoy a ski trip while you’re at it. Many of the 20 participating ski areas in the I Ski NY network offer ski-in-and-ski-out slopeside lodging, and family-friendly resorts with heated pools, waterparks, and more.
