The 2022-23 Passport Program Is Here!

The SKI NY Passport Program-Kids Ski Free* is back for the 2022-23 Season! This year the pass returns with more ski areas accepting it during holiday periods including Belleayre, Gore, Greek Peak, Holiday Valley, Snow Ridge, Swain and Whiteface Ski Areas.

As in the past the Passport is valid seven days a week except for holiday periods at certain ski areas as noted. See our participation list below for details, we will be adding more ski areas.

Holiday Periods are:

Christmas week (12/24-1/1/23)
MLK Weekend(1/14 - 1/16/23)
President’s week (2/18 – 2/26/23) 

The PASSPORT PROGRAM IS VALID FROM 12/1/22 - 5/1/23

Note: We will not be offering the Learn to Ski and Ride Program again this season.

The program is open to 3rd and 4th graders and no reservations at ski areas are required.

The program offers free skiing for your third and fourth graders with an adult purchase, it can be used up to two(2) times per participating ski area.

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!

Fee: 
There is a $41 processing fee per application.

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.

Once you receive your Passport in your email (check your inbox or spam folder) you can show the PDF on your phone or print and take with you to the ski area. The ski area will record the 16 digit number and once approved will give your child a ticket when you purchase one. If you purchase your ticket ahead online just take your child to the ski area with the Passport and present with your ticket at the ski area ticket window or guest services for redemption.

REFUND POLICY:

There are no refunds — regardless of injury, weather or other factor and other items beyond our control. There will be no credits given for the next season.

BROCHURE:
You can download our brochure to pass on to your friends, family or school here.
