Skiing and riding in Park City just got a little cheaper for families. The Epic SchoolKids program from Vail Resorts debuted last season at Canyons and Park City to give kids K through 5th five days of free skiing. Well, the deal is back again but the deadline to register is just days away.  You have until May 30 to sign up.

The Epic Schoolkids don’t know how to ski?

No worries if you have never-evers in your brood. Vail has thrown in a free full-day beginner lesson and equipment rentals. “Fostering a love for skiing and snowboarding in kids is a top priority for Vail Resorts,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. “It is incredibly important that we continue to find ways to connect kids and families in our local communities and around the state with the mountains and the many benefits of snow sports.”

Eligible Epic SchoolKids simply need to have mom or dad complete the ESK Registration Form and Pass Application (No digital signatures accepted on Pass Application), submit them to along with a digital copy of the student report card/transcript/school ID from a Utah school or birth certificate, a photo of the student (no sunglasses, hats or others in the photo) and a scanned copy of the parent’s Utah state driver’s license.

Once the required documentation is submitted via email, your child’s pass will be mailed to him/her upon processing.

Oh, and when you send in your application, make sure you add a note that you read about it here on Ski. Play. Live! Would love to get myself on their radar.  🙂

BTW, I was not paid to write this post. I know a great deal when I see one and wanted to share.
