Cold is Cool - 4th & 5th Graders Ski Free in Michigan Opportunity
Though the program, every Michigan 4th and 5th grader has the opportunity to ski for free this winter. From the website:
"The Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) wants to give Michigan kids an opportunity to get out, have fun and get healthy this winter. This is why MSIA has established a state-wide program that provides every 4th and 5th grader the opportunity to ski for free. Students can obtain a “Cold is Cool” Ski & Ride Passport that gives them up to three free lift tickets or trail passes at 30 participating ski areas, plus additional discounts on the slopes and in Michigan ski shops.
In addition to the lift tickets donated by the participating ski areas, the Cold is Cool Passport also includes a coupon for 20% off a helmet purchase and $15 off the purchase of $100 at over 50 participating ski shops. Some ski areas have also included coupons for equipment rental and free or discounted lessons. Coupons for free lift tickets in New Hampshire, Northwest Rockies, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont are also included. "
