Once again, third and fourth graders can ski or ride free at the majority of New York State ski resorts this winter when accompanied by a paying adult.

How the Program Works:

Fill out the ISKINY Free For Kids Passport Application and send it in with a copy of your third or fourth grade report card, progress report or letter from the school stating that your child is in third or fourth grade, along with the $25 processing fee. You will then receive a booklet of coupons good for free lift tickets when an adult purchases a lift ticket; three coupons per ski area are in the booklet.

If you’ve never skied before, you can also choose the Learn to Ski or Snowboard package booklet, which contains one free learn to ski or snowboard package for the child and coupons for a 20 percent  discount on a future visit for the third or fourth grader, as well as a discount for the adult.

Once you receive your Free for Kids Passport, you’ll want to make sure it is all set-up before your first visit to the mountain.
