If your family has kids in 5th or 6th grade, you might want to take advantage of some great deals on passes now that ski season in Colorado has officially begun. Colorado Ski Country offers the 5th and 6th Grade Passport while Vail Resorts will offer the School of Shred program. This is a great opportunity to hit the slopes as a family and save some money!

The 11/12 School of Shred program provides 4 FREE days of skiing or riding at each of the state’s top-ranked resorts Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin for all Colorado fifth and sixth grade students who register by November 6, 2011.
