Held in memory of Tim McClure, a conservation pioneer who began Summit’s first recycling program back in 1976, the benefit honors his legacy and supports the HC3 programs that continue his vision. The event also recognizes the conservation efforts of community members and businesses with the presentation of the Green Scene Awards. It takes place thanks to generous in-kind donations from Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise.
Save our Snow is your chance to come out and enjoy epic powder at Arapahoe Basin and help conservation efforts in Summit County. Come meet A-Basin’s Green Team and representatives from HC3 and learn about A-Basin’s sustainability initiatives while elevating your green experience at Arapahoe Basin. All proceeds from this event will benefit the High Country Conservation Center, to help us provide awareness, education, appreciation, and preservation of our environment.
To celebrate the day and the “Power To Save The Powder” A-Basin will have a tent village in Mountain Goat Plaza with some Colorado friends that practice sustainability in their businesses and products. There will be plenty of ski and snowboard vendors around demoing skis. You will need a $10 donation to HC3 to demo some of the newest equipment around, this is not a day to be missed!
We will also have a prize drawing and silent auction with prizes from our sustainability-minded friends in the tent village.
