Since its inception, we’ve reached over 12,000 children throughout the region to join in the SnowKids Program. The program was created to encourage children & families to keep active in the winter and participate in winter snow sports in a fun and cost effective environment.

The concept’s simple. All children enrolled in grades K-6 in the eligible area are given a Season Pass from Castle Mountain Resort and ATB Financial (valued at $295) for only a $5 administration fee.  The pass entitles the children to free skiing/riding for the entire winter season, no blackouts or restrictions.  Children and their families are encouraged to come to the mountain together and use discounts and coupons provided in their SnowKids Next Door package.

How does it work?

We have partnered with local schools in the  Livingstone – Macleod Area, & Okotoks – High River area and will be sending information home through their schools.   Watch for a letter from Castle coming home from your student in October or November.  To be eligible for this program you must complete a season pass application by clicking here.  Your letter will have your School and and a School Code that must be entered.

Once you have registered online you can stop by Guest Services at Castle Mountain Resort starting opening day, during regular business hours to get your picture taken and we’ll give you your season pass, coupons and a small gift.

Why are we doing this?

Castle Mountain Resort is continuing to support a local healthy community by giving all children in the community a chance to participate and try skiing or snowboarding.  Castle encourages children and their families to stay healthy and active all four seasons of the year.

Are we doing it this year?

Yes, we are! Back for the 2015-2016 season!  Participating schools have had packages delivered to them.  Some schools have chosen to “opt-out” this year.  All passes must be issued through the participating schools.  If your school has opted out for this season we encourage parents to ask their children’s schools to participate in the program again next season.
