Snowmaking is officially underway and that means that opening day is just around the corner on Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2019. This year, we will combine the first day of the winter season with the new Community Giving Celebration, a tradition that will continue annually. 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 to support CBSF as a part of the Community Giving Celebration can be made now through 4 p.m. on opening day, Wednesday, Nov. 27. Locals and guests are encouraged to visit CrestedButteSnowsports.org 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.
The Opening Day Community Giving Celebration will continue as an annual tradition. For future celebrations the resort will host an interactive community vote to determine the local organization that will be the recipient of the year’s donations.
Inspired by one of the company’s core values, Do Good, EpicPromise is Vail Resorts’ corporate responsibility platform to support and give back to the communities, employees and the environments in which it operates. To learn more about EpicPromise visit www.epicpromise.com.
