Welch Village Ski Area is proud to be a part of the Minnesota Ski Areas 4th Grade Passport Program!

The MN Ski Areas Association (MSA) wants to give MN kids a chance to to get out, have fun, and get healthy this winter by hitting the Mn slopes!

MSA created a statewide program that provides every 4th grader in the state the opportunity to ski for free. The passport includes a minimum of two visits to each ski area. 

This program & pass is intended for novice to intermediate skiers.  It is NOT intended for  USSA & D-Team race athletes and/or 4th grade skiers that are members of a traveling ski/ride club.
