This holiday season, give a Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass

to your favourite nine or ten year old and give the gift of 

skiing and snowboarding


The SnowPass helps to keep kids active during the winter months 

and it's FREE


One of Canada's easiest ways to get kids healthy and active this winter is now available.  The Canadian Ski Council's SnowPass is available online. It's an unbeatable offer: it provides three lift passes at each of the 150+ ski areas nation-wide for Canadian kids in Grade 4 and Grade 5, for free!*


SnowPass Advantage: "Introducing children to skiing and snowboarding at an early age gives them lifetime access to these healthy winter sports," says Patrick Arkeveld, President and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council. "It keeps them fit, less prone to obesity, and outside and active during the winter months. Better yet, skiing and snowboarding are sports kids can do with the entire family for a lifetime."


How It Works: The Canadian Ski Council's SnowPass gives kids in grades 4 and 5 (born in 2003 or 2004)  three lift tickets at each and every participating ski area all across Canada for the entire winter; providing them with an opportunity to ski or snowboard hundreds of times over the winter season, for free*.  You only need to apply once for the SnowPass and the pass is valid until the end of grade 5. This means if you apply in grade 4 the pass is valid for two years.


Applying is Easy: To sign up, visit, and you have a choice of either uploading your child's picture, enter your payment and their proof of age, or using our printed option that allows you to fill out the information, print the application to mail in to the Canadian Ski Council with a photo, proof of age or grade and payment; all for a one-time shipping and administration fee of $29.95 including taxes.  Signing up online is the quickest and easiest way to apply for your child's Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass card. 


Where to Use it: The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is a national program and is valid at over 150 ski areas across Canada including 32 ski areas in British Columbia, 19 ski areas in Alberta, 1 ski area in Saskatchewan, 2 ski areas in Manitoba, 33 ski areas in Ontario, 57 ski areas in Quebec, 8 in Atlantic Canada and 1 in the Yukon.  With ski areas participating across Canada, families will not have to travel far to put this SnowPass to use. Kids can easily track how many lift passes they have left by visiting

Green Is The New Healthy This Holiday Season

Green Is The New Helathy!

Receive the Gift of Light This Holiday Season

Now through December 31st, emerginC will gift a free LED light bulb with any purchase of $100 or more.

You may not find LED lights in too many homes – at least, not yet.  However, there are a few reasons why you may want to become an LED trendsetter.  LED lights are highly energy efficient, remarkably low-cost to operate, and unlike so much that is designed to be thrown away in our society, can last upwards of 20 years! By using just this one LED bulb in a single lamp, you can help the annual CO2 reduction by hundreds of pounds – and save on your next energy bill!
