Kids in Sattel Ski Free

There's a new project which was launched in the town of Sattel to promote more skiing. The town of 240 children introduced a cheap ski card for children which is the first Swiss ski resort of its kind in Switzerland. Sattel is located just outside of Zurich in Canton Schwyz.

With the card, local school children up to age 16 can buy a season ski pass for only SFr10, instead of the normal price of SFr220. 25 per cent of the funding comes from the local authority and the rest comes from canton Schwyz and sponsors. Kids who live in Switzerland normally get to go on at least one ski trip a year with their school.
