Kids School Programs
This program introduces 2nd graders to winter sports in a fun, safe environment. Through a partnership with the Snow King Resort, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club and Teton County School District, kids who have never experienced skiing will have the opportunity for a total cost of $50.
The experience will include two sessions at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and four sessions at Snow King Resort. Each session includes instruction from the Jackson Hole Mountain Sports School and Snow King Resort Ski School, lift tickets, rental ski equipment from JH Sports, transportation, lunch and an award party at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort with treats for parents and kids. Upon completion of the program, participants will have free All Mountain Passes at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Snow King Resort for the remainder of the season.
This program is only open to Jackson Elementary 2nd graders who have never skied, and is specifically designed to help get kids on the hill in a welcoming environment.

5th and 6th Grade Passport Program
Courtesy of JHMR, all 5th and 6th Grade students registered in Teton County receive 10 free days of skiing at Jackson Hole anytime during the 2011/12 season. They are also eligible for ten ski or board rentals from JH Sports in the Bridger Center. 5th and 6th graders from Jackson Elementary, Colter Elementary, Jackson Middle, Kelly, Moran, Alta and Journeys Schools are welcome to participate.
Registration: To receive your Passport Pass, parents must fill out a JHMR waiver of liability (available at the Season Pass Office) and bring the student to the Season Pass Office. We will confirm their eligibility for the program, and issue a 10-day pass and a 10-day JH Sports rental voucher. If a student already has a 2011/12 JHMR pass, bring the pass to the Season Pass Office and we can add 10-days of skiing and/or rentals to that pass.
