SnowPass

If you have kids in Grade 4 & 5 that love to ski & snowboard, the SnowPass is definitely something that you’re going to want to invest in.

For just $29.95 the SnowPass gives you access to 0ver 150 ski areas across Canada. In Alberta, there are over 15 ski areas which include Lake Louise Ski Resort, Sunshine Village, Nakiska, and Mount Norquay.

The SnowPass gives kids 3x admission per location, and signing up is easy.
