Donation Day: It's For the Kids

Crested Butte Donation Day: It's For the Kids

As the sun sets over our first day on snow and we prepare for Opening Day tomorrow, let’s look at what this inaugural Donation Day meant to the community and the kids involved.

For a simple $15 donation, skiers and riders were able to get a sneak peek of “the goods” off of the Red Lady Express Lift.  Ultimately, over 750 lift tickets were issued and proceeds benefitted the Crested Butte Snowsports Foundation which supports our local community of up-and-coming athletes!  The Crested Butte Snowsports Foundation is an organization dedicated to supporting local kids of the Crested Butte and Gunnison Valleys in their athletic pursuits on the mountain.

We look forward to expanding this inaugural Donation Day into an annual tradition, and continuing to partner with local organizations.  Thank you to everyone who donated today and we are excited to see everyone at Opening Day tomorrow!
