4th Grade Passport Program | Minnesota Ski Areas

4th Graders Ski Free with the Minnesota Ski Areas Passport

The Minnesota Ski Areas Association (MSA) wants to give Minnesota kids a chance to get out, have fun and get healthy this winter by hitting the Minnesota Slopes!

MSA has created a statewide program that provides every 4th grader the opportunity to ski for free.   Your passport includes a minimum of two visits to each resort.  For more information call, your local ski area and they will be happy to tell you any restrictions they have on the 4th grade passport.

MSA charges $19.95 for the passport (to cover printing and shipping). NO REFUNDS.




Why only 4th graders?

Fourth grade is the perfect age to learn to ski and snowboard.  They have the coordination skills and muscle development to be able to pick up on the skills as well as adhering and following safety information. One age had to be chosen and 4th grade was the decision.  We are excited that we are able to offer this program to all 4th graders. 

How will I know what the restrictions are at each area?

You will need to reach out to your local area to find out what restrictions, if any they have.

When should I expect to receive the 4th Grade Passport Pass after applying ?

Regrettably, due to the overwhelming response to this program, it may be an average of two weeks before you receive the pass. Thank you for your patience and participation in this program.
