The program pairs perfectly with parents interested in purchasing a 5 Day Edge Card
Whistler Blackcomb is pleased to announce online registration for the Epic SchoolKids program for the 2018/19 winter season. The Epic Schoolkids program offers Canadian and Washington State children in kindergarten to Grade 5 up to five free days of skiing and riding at Whistler Blackcomb. For kids new to skiing and snowboarding, Epic SchoolKids also offers one free lesson and one free rental.
“We hope many more youth will have an opportunity to ski through the SchoolKids program that is now being offered at Whistler Blackcomb,” said Pete Sonntag, chief operating officer at Whistler Blackcomb. “This program offers great value for families who may already be in skiing or snowboarding and would like to do more and offers a great opportunity to get out on the mountain for first-timers.”
With just over 8,100 acres, Whistler Blackcomb offers terrain for all levels from alpine bowls to our family learning zones. The Epic SchoolKids program allows families to access North America’s largest mountain resort like never before with a new $66 million lift upgrade. Opening for the 2018/19 winter season, the upgrade includes a 10 person gondola and new high speed quad chair on Blackcomb Mountain plus a high speed 6 person chair at the heart of our Emerald family learning zone on Whistler Mountain. These upgrades will improve guest flow around the mountains and means fewer lines, more skiing and riding.
Absolutely no purchase is necessary to take advantage of the Epic SchoolKids program. Proof of Canadian and Washington State residency is required and there are some restrictions during holiday and peak periods. Registration is now open.
