Kids who happen to be in the New York State ski areas, they are in for a treat of free skiing, with the ISKINY Free For Kids Passport Program 2017-18 Season.

The “Learn to Ski Passport” program and the “Kids Ski Free Passport” program are valid for any 3rd or 4th grader (from anywhere in the world) at participating New York State ski areas. As is evident from the labels, the Learn To Ski Passport is for children who are new to the slopes and the Kids Ski Free Passport is for kids who know how to ski.

Applications (must show proof child is in 3rd or 4th grade) can be made here to receive a “passport” in the mail and this passport can be used at over 20 participating ski areas across New York State.
