4th Graders Ski Free With The Minnesota Ski Areas Passport

4th Fourth Grade Passport Program

The Minnesota Ski Areas Association (MSA) wants to give Minnesota kids a chance to get out, have fun and get healthy this winter by hitting the Minnesota Slopes!  MSA has created a statewide program that provides every 4th grader the opportunity to ski for free.

Buck Hill is offering you three visits* to our resort on your 4th Grade Passport.

*Can not be combined with any other discounts, specials, and programs.

ONLY purchased through MSA. They charge $29.95 plus tax and fees ($34.95) for the passport (to cover printing and shipping).


Why only 4th graders?
Fourth grade is the perfect age to learn to ski and snowboard.  This program is tailored for the new and beginner skier and snowboarder.  They have the coordination skills and muscle development to be able to pick up on the skills as well as adhering to and following safety information. One age had to be chosen and 4th grade was the decision.  We are excited that we are able to offer this program to all 4th graders.

How will I know what the restrictions are at each area?
You will need to reach out to your local area to find out what restrictions apply.


The 4th Grade Passport is currently not for sale. Please check back later and we will post when it is for sale through MSA.
