That’s over 470 lift passes if you hit all those mountains.

The SnowPass program is for kids born in 2006 or 2007. If you apply for your child’s SnowPass while they are in Grade 4, the pass is good for two whole years. This provides your child with ample opportunity to try skiing and snowboarding and gain the experience to try many different ski areas.

The SnowPass has encouraged more than half a million kids to try skiing and snowboarding over the past twenty years.

It’s valid at 157 ski areas across Canada, including 31 in B.C., 24 in Alberta, one in Saskatchewan, three in Manitoba, 31 in Ontario, 58 in Quebec, eight in Atlantic Canada, and one in the Yukon.
