Fifth Graders Ski FREE
Skiing and riding are magical sports and that can change lives, supporting healthier decisions and bonding experiences that can last a lifetime. There is no better time to fall in love with snow-covered mountains than during the final years of care-free adolescence. To help our youth get to the hills, we offer participating fifth graders up to 88 free days of skiing and riding at Vermont's alpine and Nordic resorts. This season marks the fourth year in which the program will also enrich the community by donating proceeds to Keep Local Farms. Keep Local Farms is an education and contribution program that connects consumers with local dairy farmers and encourages the purchase of healthy, local foods which sustain the working landscape for future generations. So far we have donated nearly $40,000 to local farmers through the Must be the Milk campaign.
