I'll be skiing

75,000 vertical feet in March and hitting every operating lift at Vail Mountain (all 31 of them), while I do! Think I can do it?

Support me on this journey to ski as much as I can in March. Every small donation helps!

I am skiing for the the EpicPromise Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides grants for Vail Resorts employees in times of financial need and to pursue their educational dreams.

This foundation is for those who keep the ski lifts running, the trails groomed, the mountain safe and the hot cocoa warm. It's for those who drive you to the slopes in the morning and who welcome you home to your hotel at night. The ones who sharpen your edges and who teach you your first turns. It is for all 31,000 Vail Resorts employees across the US, Canada and Australia who make Experiences of a Lifetime happen every day at our ski resorts.

Since launching in December 2015, the EpicPromise Foundation has provided over 450 grants to Vail Resorts employees, totaling over US$1M in support. It has helped ensure that Vail Resorts employees and their families can pursue their dreams to continue their education through grants for graduate degrees, college degrees and other vocational training. The foundation is also here for employees who have an unplanned medical need or an emergency that has happened to their home or family, because you never know what curve-ball life might bring.

Grants have been given out worldwide to employees in Perisher, Australia; Whistler, British Columbia; Park City, Utah; Stowe, Vermont; Summit County, Colorado and in between.

Join me in a gift that changes lives. Thank you for your support! Come ski with me in March.
