The Fifth Grade Passport Open Doors to Vermont Resorts with Free Skiing and Riding
If you have a 5th grader in your house, you’ll want to keep reading. Ski Vermont offers FREE skiing and riding all over the state to current 5th graders. So despite recent weather trends, sooner or later winter will actually arrive here and we’ll all be itching for ways to get out and enjoy our state. Check out this great video that tells you what you need to know about the passport program. MiniBury also loves any overages from the $11 processing fee goes towards Vermont farmers. Last year the organization gave $16,365 to Keep Local Farms. Keep Local Farms is an education and contribution program that connects consumers with local dairy farmers and encourages the purchase of healthy, local foods which sustain the working landscape for future generations.

To help our youth get to the hills, we offer participating fifth graders up to 88 free days of skiing and riding at Vermont’s alpine and Nordic resorts with the Fifth Grade Passport.
