For a generation, Colorado Ski Country USA’s Ski Passport has provided an affordable way for elementary school children to take up skiing and snowboarding. And this year, it is being expanded to include third graders.

The program was inaugurated in 1996 for fifth graders, and over the years it expanded to include sixth graders and fourth graders.
