For those of you who participated in past years, welcome back! For those who are new to the event, hold on to your ski hats, you're in for a fun ride! This year we are celebrating 10 years of fun and fundraising! We have another terrific program planned for you. For those who have never-ever skied, snowboarded, or telemarked, Pajarito Mountain offers free ski lessons and rental gear for registrants, so come join us! As in years past, your registration fee includes a tax-deductible donation to the Anita Salas Memorial Fund, the Friday evening kick-off party at the Posse Shack, ski clinics with certified instructors, access to fabulous items through our silent auction, hot breakfast to start each day, and an opportunity to demo the new line of K2 snow sports products! This year all registrants will also receive K2WW@PM socks.
In celebration of our decadal anniversary, we are shooting for the stars and want to achieve $100,000 in 10 years. Yes that's right! $100,000! We will need to raise $18,000 this year, and that's only $5000 more than we normally raise. This is a reach, but I know we can do it with your help! The women and men whom we have met and their families have been forever grateful for the services and support that has been provided to them through this fund. Most of the money we raise comes from our silent auction proceeds, which is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and will be Saturday Feb 10th from 3-5pm in the Pajarito Mountain Lodge and accompanied by Beer and Band and jazz from The Craig Martin Experience. K2 has again donated new ski equipment for the auction and we have beautifully crafted jewelry, hand-knit hats, spa services, ski lessons, hand-made soaps and other great things to auction off! On Saturday evening, you and your guests are invited to celebrate "The Stars Continue to Shine" with music and dancing with DJ Heather Coy and dinner catered by El Parasol. BYOB, invite your friends and join us dressed up as your favorite star!
So come join us this February for bump, snowboard, and telemark clinics taught by PSIA instructors, help us decorate the memorial tree on Pajarito in honor of those affected by cancer, meet new and see old friends, enjoy the on and off the hill festivities and help us reach our goal of $100,000 in 10 years! We'll be giving away lots of great K2 swag and prizes all weekend, so invite your friends and don't miss this!!
