4th GRADE PASSPORT PROGRAM
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. However, your passport will get you up to 4 visits at Powder Ridge with no black out dates!
Please make sure you check with each area you will be visiting as many areas have restrictions including black out dates, times, number of visits, etc.
MSA charges $19.95 for the passport (to cover printing and shipping).

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? Powder Ridge allows up to 4 visit per passport (no black out dates or time restrictions). Please reach out to other local areas to find out what their restrictions are before purchasing the pass.
4th GRADE PASSPORT PROGRAM
HOW IT WORKS
Everything is done online! Pick a date on the calendar, then decide what tickets you would like to purchase for youself, invite your friends and family via text and email, and as the group grows, so does your discount!
Each member invited to your group will be able to pay for their lift tickets individually and you will be able to see who has decided to join your group. The day before your trip the group is closed, the final price is based on how many are in the group. Each group member will be sent their ticket vouchers via email. Just take your emailed ticket voucher to our front desk (located right inside the main entrance doors of the chalet) to pick-up your ticket(s).

Yours in Winter Fun,
Great reasons to get a Season Pass:
1. Come out and ski or board anytime you want (when we are open of course).
2. Ability to come out for as long or as short of time you want. Only have an hour or two but just want to get some fresh air and runs in, do it.
3. Season Pass holders get discounts at other great ski areas.
4. Added value specials throughout the season for pass holders only.
5. It's FUN!
The Powder Ridge family is looking forward to having you join us this winter, see you soon.
