Hope On The Slopes

Here’s a little plug for a fun event coming up:


If you love to ski or ride you can make a difference in the fight against cancer by supporting Hope On The Slopes at Crystal Mountain on March 13, 2010.

“Hope on the Slopes” (HOTS) is a ski and snowboard event benefitting the American Cancer Society (ACS).  First conducted at the White Pass ski area in 2004, the event has grown to four Washington mountains for 2010.

For more information about the organization, see their website:  www.hotscrystal.com or view a brief You Tube video about HOTS here.


How it works:

HOTS participants ask supporters to make donations to ACS in recognition of their commitment to ski as many vertical feet as they can over the course of the event. All fundraising is done via an ACS website where participants establish a personal fundraising web page to share their message and show their progress. In addition to funds contributed by supporters, all sponsorship proceeds go straight to the ACS, as the cost of conducting the event is completely borne by participants, volunteers and the hosting ski areas.

To Register:

Registration is done online. The cost to register is $35 per individual or $150 for a team of up to 10 people. If you raise a minimum of $100 you will receive a complimentary lift ticket for the day!!! To register for HOTS, go to the HOTS website.

To get more information about HOTS:

Attend the "Information Night" at Harmon Brewery in Tacoma January 27, 2010 at 7pm.

  1. I can’t participate this year, but I’ve done so in the past at another resort. It’s a blast and even better, it raises money for a cause that unfortunately affects us all. Don’t be shy! Get up there and try it out! It’s very low pressure and you can leave whenever you want.


  2. People of all ages and ability’s can participate. My 5 year old will be skiing this year. You can join a team or sign up as an individual.
    If you can’t participate, but would like to donate you can do so via the web page also. Just pick a team that sounds fun!
