PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Kids and snow go together like skis and boots. 

At 19 ski areas across the state, fourth- and fifth-graders can score an almost-free snow pass for the season. 

The program, run by the Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association, lets the kids ski or snowboard for three days at each resort — I said almost free. 

Last year, nearly 10,000 kids were able to hit the slopes and learn the sports thanks to the snow pass.

There is, however, a $40 processing charge, but the pass includes a free lesson and equipment to get started. Skiing parents love it.

Just go to skipa.com to get the details and see the resorts that span the state, from Spring Mountain in the Philly suburbs to Seven Springs Mountain Resort in the Allegheny Mountains. All the Pocono resorts are included, and if you live out-of-state, you're still good as gold.
