Program Rules for 2020-21

The 2020-21 SKI NY Passport Program is a non-transferrable digital card which entitles the 3rd or 4th grader to whom it is issued to obtain complimentary one-day lift tickets, subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, at participating New York State ski resorts (subject to change) during the 2020-2021 season. The area ski resorts participating in the 2020-21 season can be found at our website at https://www.iskiny.com/ski-ride/ski-ny-ski-ride-passport-programs.

The 2020-21 Passport is only valid Midweek and in most cases holiday periods are not valid, see ski area participation list. The Passport is valid at all participating resorts while open from 12/1/20 to 5/1/21.

Check each ski area on our website as dates may vary per ski area as well as reservations may be required.

The Ski & Ride Passport may be used to obtain no more than three (3) complimentary one-day child lift tickets at each participating resort with an adult ticket purchase between 12/1/20 - 5/1/21, while the ski area is open.

The lift tickets from the Ski & Ride Passport obtained may not be transferred or resold to any other person, including family members or relatives. It is a violation of New York State Law to resell lift tickets or packages. SANY or any area in the program will immediately revoke a Passport if the holder transfers use of the Passport or of any lift ticket obtained with the Passport to another person, for monetary consideration or otherwise.

The Ski & Ride Passport may be presented via paper or by smartphone by the parent/guardian of the 3rd or 4th Grade holder to obtain a complimentary one-day lift ticket only when accompanied by a paying adult (as determined by member resort*). A maximum of three(3) 3rd or 4th Grade Passport holders per adult redemption may obtain a complimentary one-day lift ticket using the Passport.

SANY or any ski area will revoke and cancel a Passport card without notice for any passport card misuses. Passport holders and their parent or legal guardian are responsible for proper use of the Passport at all times. SANY is also not fiscally responsible for denials of redemption in the program by the ski area.

If a Passport is lost or stolen, notify SANY immediately. Participating resort lift ticket offices cannot assist with lost or stolen Passports. Contact the SKI NY Offices at 315-696-6550 or passport@iskiny.com for assistance. Office hours are Monday – Friday from 9am - 4pm.

REFUND POLICY:

There are no refunds — regardless of injury, weather or other factors including State closures due to the pandemic and other items beyond our control. There will be no credits given for the next season.

All Passport holders agree to comply with all rules and regulations of participating SANY member resorts and with all other applicable laws and regulations, including the New York Skier Safety Code.

An individual is eligible for the ISKINY Free for Kids Passport only once for each 3rd Grader and 4th Grader. Ski areas have the final decision on passport redemption.

All information provided in ISKINY Free for Kids Passport application is subject to verification by SANY. All information provided in the application becomes the property of SANY. Information provided by Free for Kids Passport applicants may be used by SANY and its member resorts for verification and for market research purposes.

Redemption of Ski & Ride Passport
Ski areas will redeem a Ski & Ride Passport for a free lift ticket (up to 3 per participating ski area) when an adult purchase is made either on-site or online at the ski areas own online store. Included are season pass purchases.
