STEP 3: Come celebrate on Friday, March 15th by skiing a maximum number of runs on the rope-tow! Our goal is to ski 2,000,000 vertical feet as a group in one day! That’s 4000 total runs! Great food provided by “Hatchet”! Great beer provided by “Frost” beer works!

We will be operating the tbar and mighty mite as well for the usual $5.00 ticket. The event BBQ is also the season’s last Friday night dinner for $12!

  • Event is Friday March 15th from 3-8pm.
  • The rope is approx. 250 vert. feet, but since it’s just as hard to go up as it is to ski down, we figure 500 vert. feet credit for every run! 4000 runs equals 2,000,000 vertical feet!
  • Food and Fuel provided by local hotspot “Hatchet” for all participants!!
  • There will be an easy panel SL course, two full pole SL courses and a free ski lane.
  • Great prizes from Shred, Darn Tough, Slopeside Syrup, Little Bellas, Redneck Racing, and more!

Fundraising Goals:

  • 20 sponsors/donors per participant
  • $100,000 in Donations (All donations are 100% tax deductible)
