Cold is Cool!

MSIA Cold is Cool Passport allows 4th and 5th Graders to Ski All Winter Long in Michigan! 

Families can obtain a Cold is Cool Ski & Ride Passport App for their 4th and/or 5th graders that gives them up to three free lift tickets at Mont Ripley and 28 other participating ski resorts across Michigan!

MSIA charges $30 for the passport; $25 covers operating expenses and $5 goes to MIsnow, a new charitable organization that helps get underprivileged kids out on our slopes & trails in the winter.  MIsnow also works to preserve the strong cultural past of Michigan skiing and protect its future with sustainability education.


Cold is Cool Passport also includes a coupon for 20% off a helmet purchase and $20 off the purchase of $100 at participating ski shops across the state.

The Passport is an app to download on your phone, making it contactless at the lift ticket window.
