Lindsey Vonn's 'School of Shred' is Back Offering Colorado 5th and 6th Graders Four Free Days of Unrestricted Skiing and Snowboarding

23 September 2013
BROOMFIELD, Colo. – Sept. 23, 2013—School is back in session and so is Vail Resorts’ and Lindsey Vonn’s “School of Shred” program, offering 5th and 6th grade students the best deal on skiing and snowboarding in Colorado with four free, unrestricted days on the snow at each of its Colorado resorts – Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone – plus four free days at Arapahoe Basin. In addition first-timers will receive one complimentary beginner ski or snowboard lesson and rental equipment that can be used from Dec. 2-15, 2013 or Jan. 5-31, 2014 as part of “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.” Parents can enroll their 5th and 6th graders in the “School of Shred” program now through Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013.
 
The “School of Shred” program was introduced by Vail Resorts in 2008 and is designed to help inspire a lifelong passion for the outdoors and an active lifestyle for kids throughout Colorado. Principal of the “School of Shred” is none other than decorated alpine ski racing champion and Olympic gold medalist, Lindsey Vonn.
 
“Vail Resorts ‘School of Shred’ program is a great way to help encourage kids to stay active by getting them outside and on the mountain,” said Lindsey Vonn. “It’s so important for kids to get involved with sports in general at a young age. To be able to offer them the opportunity to ski and snowboard for free is something I think all Colorado kids and families should take advantage of this winter.”
 
To sign up to receive the “School of Shred” pass for 5th or 6th graders, a parent or guardian must present documentation proving eligibility – such as a report card, school ID indicating grade level for the current school year, or a valid birth certificate – at any resort season pass office or any Front Range Vail Resorts’ Epic pass sales location this fall. Students must be present at the time of purchase to get their photo taken for their Vail Resorts “School of Shred” pass.
 
Front Range pass sales locations include Colorado Ski and Golf (Aurora, Arvada, Colorado Springs and Littleton), Colorado Ski and Sports in Park Meadows, Boulder Ski Deals, Breeze Ski Rentals in Lakewood, and Outpost Sunsport in Fort Collins.
