School of Shred; More options for free skiing
by Elean Gersack
As part of Vail Resorts and the Epic Pass program, the School of Shred will offer fifth and sixth graders the opportunity to ski free at resorts along the 1-70 corridor this season. Students who sign-up for the pass between now and November 6 will receive four free ski days at Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, Vail, and Beaver Creek.
Simply bring a copy of the child’s report card to Colorado Ski & Golf or REI and complete the pass application. The child’s photo will be taken and he/she will come home with a pass ready for the 2011-2012 ski/ride season.
Also included in the School of Shred program is a free first-time lesson and rental at Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail or Beaver Creek between November 28 and December 18 or during the entire month of January. Pass holders just show the pass at the ski or snowboard school of choice.
Families of fifth and sixth graders who want to take advantage of the extra skiing and boarding potential can do so with a pass of their own. Several Epic Passes are available for adults, teens and children including the Epic, Epic Local, Epic seven-day, and Summit Value passes. For various costs, each offers a slightly different spin on this multi-resort season pass.
