Winter Park Resort Alpine Ski Sales Benefit 3 Local Nonprofits
WINTER PARK, Colo .– All proceeds from downhill ski sales at Winter Park Resort this year will go to three local nonprofits.
Alpine skiers at Winter Park Resort will need to pre-purchase a $ 25 armband that is suitable for the entire 2021-2022 season. The funds thus collected will go to Grand County Search and Rescue, Rapid deployment of an avalanche in Colorado dog teams, and Col des Amis de Berthoud.
Last winter, Winter Park Resort was able to donate over $ 45,000 from these sales to Grand County Search and Rescue.
“We are grateful to all of these organizations for helping those who choose to explore our local community and we are delighted to offer our support to these organizations,” Winter Park Resort wrote on its website. “We are proud to support local organizations that provide resources for search and rescue and mountain education in winter. “
Skiing, also known as “uphill”, is increasingly popular. Winter Park Resort says it offers visitors a way to “win their ride” and explore the resort in a new way.
The armband identifies an uphill skier as someone who has read and agreed to the resort regulations. They have access to over a third of Winter Park’s 3,081 skiable acres. Click here for a map of uphill routes.
