Community Giving Celebration

Support opportunities for local youth to participate in snowsports this winter season! This year, Crested Butte Mountain Resort will combine the first day of the winter season with the spirit of the former Donation Day for a new Opening Day Community Giving Celebration, a tradition that will continue annually moving forward.

This year’s Community Giving Celebration will benefit the local Crested Butte Snowsports Foundation (CBSF), and Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise will match donations to contribute up to an additional $10,000 to the local organization.

Donations can be made now through opening day, Wednesday, Nov. 27. Locals and guests are encouraged to visit and select the Opening Day Campaign to make a donation online.

Donations can also be made in person on opening day at the CBSF tent in the base area.
