FunPass encourage kids to stay active

Resorts of the Canadian Rockies and Husky Energy have partnered once again to present the Husky Grade 2 FunPass program.

Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR) and Husky Energy have partnered once again to present the Husky Grade 2 FunPass program.

The pass provides young skiers and riders with a complimentary season’s pass valid at Western Canadian RCR ski resorts, including Fernie Alpine Resort and Kimberley Alpine Resort. The program gives kids the opportunity to learn and build their skiing and snowboarding skills, while furthering a healthy and active lifestyle.

“Skiing and snowboarding are some of the best activities that families can enjoy together,” commented Matt Mosteller, Marketing and Sales VP for Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. “Minister Bennett and Minister of Job, Tourism and Skills Training, Pat Bell, both played pivotal roles, as they along with the B.C. Liberals lead the country in getting kids active and healthy in British Columbia. It helps to have his support, as he understands how important it is to get kids and families to enjoy the great outdoors.”

Mosteller went on to say, “This program promotes a healthy, active, outdoor lifestyle at a young age, by giving grade two students the opportunity to try the sport for free for an entire season. We are always excited to introduce a new generation of skiers and riders to the sport.”

Children must be in grade two this year, or born in 2005 to be eligible for the pass. Proof must be provided by a copy of a birth certificate, current grade two report card, or a grade one report card from last year. There is a $20 processing fee, however each child still receives savings of over $500 off the regular child pass price.

“Getting kids active with their families in the great outdoors is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” said Bill Bennett, Minster of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development. “It’s great to see Husky Energy and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies continuing to lead a program that promotes outdoor recreational activity among our youth and making skiing and snowboarding available to all grade two students.”

Passes can be purchased in person at Fernie Alpine Resort, or online at www.skircr.com.
