5th and 6th graders ski deal!

I have a great idea. Mom and Dad are now retired and may sign on to my awesome plan. SkiUtah.com has a 5th grade and a 6th grade ski passport that allows the holder to ski every resort in Utah free. 5th Graders get to ski each 3 times, I think. 6th graders just once each. There is a $25 processing fee. That is amazing! So, if Rebecca, Elisabeth, and Jane all have free ski lift passes, Mom and Dad could have a fun granddaughter ski day or 2 or 14. Or Sam, Michelle and I could take the girls some day. It would be super fun. I don't think Ryan can b/c I think you have to be a resident. Darn. Anyway, what do you think? - Jen
