SUMMIT COUNTY — Along with the long-running fifth and sixth-grade ski passports from Colorado Ski Country USA, school kids in the state can also sign up for the Vail Resorts School of Shred program, which offer four free days or skiing or riding at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone. The program also includes one free beginner lesson and equipment rentals.

Olympic gold-medalist Lindsey Vonn brought the School of Shred message to Devinny Elementary School this week, speaking to more that 450 youngsters about her ski career, including three World Cup titles and the first-ever downhill gold for an American Woman.

Vonn’s visit was the school’s prize for signing up the most students for the School of Shred program. In a new contest, Vail Resorts said the school that signs up the most kids this year will win a ski field trip to Vail with legendary ski film-maker Warren Miller and extreme skier Chris Anthony.

Front Range residents need to sign up for the program before Nov. 7 by bringing a 5th or 6th grade report card to a Front Range pass sales location or any special event. The School of Shred pass is only available at Vail Resorts Front Range Pass Sale locations.
