Posted:  Tuesday, February 14, 2017 - 4:00pm

The 2016-2017 WinterKids Passport, Maine's original outdoor winter activity discount book, allows Maine families to try new winter activities, including downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snow tubing, snowshoeing, and even dog sledding. Each and every 5th, 6th, and 7th grader in Maine is eligible for a Passport, which contains free and discounted tickets, lessons, and rentals at 50 outdoor winter recreational areas all over the state.

Now, WinterKids is offering the Passport, which regularly sells for $25, at a 40 percent discount to encourage kids to get outside and active during February school vacation week. Parents will need to enter the coupon code: FEB2017 to take advantage of the $15 Passport. If parents order a Passport by noon on Wednesday, February 15, their child will receive it before February vacation, which begins Saturday, February 18.

WinterKids Passport holders can also take advantage of WinterKids Passport Family Days. WinterKids Family Days are a way for Passport holders and their families to take advantage of deeply discounted tickets on select dates throughout the winter.

Upcoming WinterKids Family Days:
· Smiling Hill Farm, Westbrook – February 11 (snow conditions pending)
· The Rink at Thompson's Point, Portland – February 14 & 16
· Camden Snow Bowl, Camden – March 5
· Shawnee Peak, Bridgton – March 3 & 10
· Mt. Abram, Greenwood – March 19

Proceeds from the Passport are used to support Winterkids' programs to help children develop healthy lifelong habits through education and fun, outdoor winter activity. Each WinterKids Passport includes an estimated savings value of $3,000.
