Tahoe ski resort gives out free passes for straight-A’s

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Diamond Peak Ski Resort and the Incline Village General Improvement District will again reward students for academic success this season with its “Stellar Students Ski Free Program.”

Students enrolled through grade 12 in Incline Village schools, including Lake Tahoe School, receive a free 2013-14 season pass in exchange for a report card with straight-A’s.

The offer extends itself to children of Incline Village and Crystal Bay property owners attending other schools, according to an IVGID press release.

Students need to present the original straight-A report card from the first semester ending January 2014 at Diamond Peak Guest Services.

Students in kindergarten through second grade who use a different grading system must receive an S+ in all their core subjects.

Students who have already purchased season passes will receive a full refund, according to IVGID.

“Diamond Peak’s Stellar Students Program is designed to recognize the importance of academic success and reward the hard work and dedication of students in the local community,” officials said. “In addition, IVGID hopes to encourage students to apply that dedication outside of the classroom to achieve similar goals on the mountain and elsewhere.”
