You read right, 4th and 5th graders can get FREE lift tickets in New Hampshire. Plus, check out how 5th graders can also get FREE lift tickets in Vermont!
How can you get FREE lift tickets in New Hampshire?
Its super easy. SkiNH is offering a ski passport for current 4th and 5th graders. The cost of the passport is $30 plus tax ($2). When you consider one lift ticket at one of these mountains can be in the $50-$70 range, this is an awesome deal. Even if you only end up using it once.
You do need to provide proof of your child’s grade. We haven’t received report cards yet. I simply emailed secretary and asked for a letter. Once she emailed it to me, I forwarded to the email address on the site. All done!
Plus, in addition to the FREE lift ticket your 4th and/or 5th graders get, each mountain offers a bonus ski discount. Below is the list of participating mountains as well as the bonus ski deal they are offering. I know I can’t wait to go to Mt. Sunapee–with their bonus offer, both of my kids will ski FREE that day.
