MSIA Cold is CoolNew this winter - the Cold is Cool Passport is for 5th grade students too!

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 fourth and now also 5th grader in Michigan 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 27 participating ski areas, plus additional discounts on the slopes and in Michigan ski shops.

It's easy and affordable to take a school field trip to a ski area close to your home!  Under our Cold is Cool banner, MSIA offers a program called School Ski Days, where participating ski areas provide rental equipment, lessons and lift tickets as inexpensively as possible.  The objective is to introduce children to skiing and snowboarding and to get them outside, enjoying Michigan’s winter in a fun, safe environment.  The cost varies from ski area to ski area but will not exceed $35 per child. Some ski areas charge less.  To learn more, click hereclick here.
