Free Ski Day

This Friday, January 26th, is Mt. Bachelor‘s annual Free Ski Day—their 17th. From the KTVZ article I found this on:

On Friday, January 26, Mt. Bachelor will host the 17th annual Free Ski Day to benefit Neighbor Impact, formerly known as COCAAN. In exchange for a minimum of three items of non-perishable food, Mt. Bachelor will issue one all day Alpine Lift Ticket or Nordic Trail Pass. The goal: feed the needy and less fortunate in Central Oregon….

Donations will be taken at the Bend Park and Ride in downtown Bend and at the West Village and Sunrise ticketing areas at the mountain. Although a minimum of three items of food are required to receive a ticket, Neighbor Impact and Mt. Bachelor are asking those who can to donate more….

When choosing what to donate, Neighbor Impact encourages guests to donate canned tuna, chicken and salmon and canned meals such as soup, chili and stew. Other useful items to donate include peanut butter, canned beans and peas. Monetary donations are also accepted. Neighbor Impact asks that guests avoid donating glass or boxed items for this event, as they tend to get damaged in transport from the mountain.

One thought on “Free Ski Day

  1. Employee of Mt. Bach here, free ski day was a great success, I (luckily) did not work that day as it was a disaster… We had about 8,000 people there. Typically Bend-LaPine schools has an inservice day to allow for kids to go up, This year they did not which helped lower the attendance a bit.

    I am new to this site, just found it on google, good job guys. You will prbly see a few more of my comments around. This one I must remain anyonomous as a am discussing my job. I am also a student in the bend la-pine schools and you may see soem comments from me there.
