KILLINGTON, VT, (Mar. 1, 2010) – Pico is proud to announce a partnership to benefit not just the local Vermont community, but the national community of those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
On March 6, Pico will host “Hope on the Slopes,” an event designed to raise money for the American Cancer Society, and raise awareness of healthy activities and lifestyles. $12 of every lift ticket purchased will go directly to the American Cancer Society, and raffles will be held throughout the day for prizes like a 2010/11 My Pico Season Pass, a snowboard gift package and more. The new Pico Race Arena will be open as well, offering timed runs down a professional course for a $1 donation to the American Cancer Society. Young non-racers will also enjoy the fun with face painting at the Pico Lodge and a pizza party at 2:30. Donations will be accepted at both events and various locations throughout the day.
All donations collected will benefit the American Cancer Society to help with cancer research, children’s camps, the Cancer Survivor’s Network, and programs like Reach to Recovery, Man to Man, and Look Good, Feel Better.
Help others get well, and fight back against cancer – join us at Pico on March 6 for this meaningful and family-friendly event.
About Pico Mountain:
With more vertical drop than 80% of New England mountains, Pico Mountain offers mogul trails, glades, groomed cruisers and the new Triple Slope Terrain Park, all of which lead back to one classically-styled Vermont base lodge. First-timers can enjoy gentle learning trails and a new tow-rope, while more advanced skiers and snowboarders will enjoy finding their way into the glades on a fresh powder day. Our 50 trails, 214 skiable acres and seven lifts (including two high-speed quads) mean our slopes are never crowded and our guests get the most out of their days.
