Epic SchoolKids Ski Free at Park City Mountain 2017/18!
It’s time again to set your kids up with the Epic SchoolKids program in Utah and Colorado. The Vail Resorts’ plan to get hundreds of K-5th grade students out on the hill is one of the best deals in the industry but don’t wait too long. They do tend to pull the registration before summer.
Enroll kids online for five free days of skiing and snowboarding at Park City and Canyons during the 2017-2018 winter season.* “It is incredibly important that we continue to find ways to make snowsports accessible and sharing the experience of skiing and snowboarding with the next generation continues to be a top priority for us at Park City,” said Bill Rock, Park City’s chief operating officer. “Our hope is that this program will help foster a lifelong connection to the outdoors and the mountains we love.”
The SchoolKids program was launched in 2015 at Park City when Vail Resorts took over operations. All Utah students (in school or home-schooled) are eligible regardless of their ability level. Kids get five free direct-to-lift days, and one free first-timer ski or snowboarding lesson with equipment rental used in December and January.
