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

Kids Ski Free* for third and fourth graders will be valid during Monday-Friday’s only at participating ski areas (see below), 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, see our participation list below for details and phone numbers you can call.

The program offers free skiing for your third and fourth graders midweek with an adult purchase, it can be used up to three(3) times per participating ski area, this is designed to avoid weekend and holiday capacity restrictions and provide a healthy activity mid-week for you and your child(ren). A valid adult ticket purchase is one on the ski area website or at the ticket window and includes season passes as well. IT DOES NOT INCLUDE RENTALS OR LESSONS!

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. Once your application is processed you will be emailed your Passport "digital card" that you can print or show on your phone. It is also available in your profile on our Passport system so you can access and email it to yourself anytime you wish.
