2015-16 EPIC Schoolkids Colorado Pack

 

Q: WHAT IS THE EPIC SCHOOLKIDS COLORADO PACK?

The Epic SchoolKids Colorado Pack is a FREE program for Kindergarten through 5th graders that provides skiing and riding at each of the state’s top-ranked resorts: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone (restricted: 11/27/15-11/28/15, 12/26/15-12/31/15, 1/16/16 and 2/13/16-2/14/16.)  It includes one FREE first-timer ski or ride lesson with equipment rental during the month of January. (The first-timer lesson is only available from 1/5/16-1/31/16 as a part of “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month” and is not available 1/1-1/4/16 or 1/15/16-1/17/16.)  Additionally, Epic SchoolKids Colorado Pack provides unlimited summer 2015 scenic chair lift rides at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone

 

And a clause to grandfather in 6th graders:

 

Q: MY CHILD WILL BE ENTERING 6TH GRADE NEXT YEAR AND HAS BEEN COUNTING ON HAVING HIS/HER PASS UNDER THE PREVIOUS SCHOOL OF SHRED PROGRAM. IS THERE SOMETHING FOR HIM/HER?

Only current 2014-2015 School of Shred 5th grade participants are eligible to register for the Epic SchoolKids Program for their 2015-2016 6th grade school year. They will be able to get the Epic Schoolkids Colorado Pack, following the same registration process as Kindergarten – 5th grade kids, to receive their free 4 days at each of the five resorts and one first-timer lesson in January 2016. 2016-2017 6th graders will not be eligible for the Epic Schoolkids Program.

Just noticed this and wanted to give it a bump for those that may have missed it.  Must register by Memorial Day at one of the Front Range locations.  Glad VR is making an effort to get more kids into skiing (although I fear that those familiar with the old program might miss the much earlier registration deadline)!
