Love your CSCUSA Passport? Tell us about it!

Who better to write about the 5th and 6th Grade Passport Program than the families who enjoy it all season long?

We here at Colorado Ski Country USA believe that our Passport Families have something to say. Whether it is what they are most looking forward to this season, their most memorable run, or even their favorite on mountain snack, we want to know it all, and we want to share it with our audience.

To help us in our quest to share the true Passport Family perspective, we plan to feature some of our very own 5th and 6th Grade Passport Families on the Colorado Ski Country USA Blog. We figure, who wouldn’t want to share their love of skiing and riding? Plus, being a published ski or snowboard blogger is a pretty solid bragging right for any family!

In short, a new prompt will be posted here every month. After submissions are closed, one Passport Family will be selected from the bunch and contacted by CSCUSA for further details. This means that each prompt will allow a new 5th or 6th grade family the chance to be featured as the Passport Family Blogger with the family’s very own Blog Post and corresponding spot in our Passport eNews!

Notice of a new prompt will be shared via Passport eNews, so be sure to check each week!

your mission, should you choose to accept it:

Choose any way that works for your family to answer this month’s prompt:
