Sixth graders can ski free at Vail Resorts mountains

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado ” Sixth graders in Colorado will now ski or snowboard for free ” just like the state’s fifth graders ” for four days at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone.

Under Vail Resorts’ new “School of Shred” pass program, the company will refund the $99 amount for those who have already registered for the sixth grade “School of Shred” program.

In years past, Vail Resorts has offered fifth graders three days of skiing and riding as part of the student ski program. This year, the company is adding an extra day of skiing at each of its four Colorado resorts for a grand total of 16 days on the slopes .

To receive the fifth or sixth grade “School of Shred” pass, a parent or guardian must present documentation proving eligibility ” a report card or school ID that indicates grade level or a valid birth certificate ” at any Front Range Vail Resorts’ pass sales location through Sunday or throughout the season at any resort season pass office.

Students must be present at time of purchase to get their photo taken for their Vail Resorts “School of Shred” pass.
