— Registration for the inaugural Ski 4 Yellow event in Steamboat Springs had been open for just a day, and event co-chairman and organizer Kerry Shea had a message for those hoping to take to the snow with the stars March 26.

You’d better hurry.

“With what we’re seeing just from the initial interest, these spots will fill quickly,” Shea said.

For a $75 registration fee and collecting $500 in donations for cancer research, skiers and snowboarders will be able to tag along for a day at Steamboat Ski Area with as many as 25 Olympic and World Cup skiers.

The exact list of who will be on hand still is being finalized. Dhani Jones, a linebacker with the Cincinnati Bengals, will be the keynote speaker at a dinner March 25.

Registration is open to 200 people. Within a day of opening the gates, 10 of those spots were spoken for.

“Word spread pretty darn quick,” Shea said. “We have people already from Colorado, Washington, New Jersey, Penn­sylvania and Nevada.”

Ski 4 Yellow also announced this week that local companies SmartWool and Honey Stinger will be core sponsors for the event.

“We’re very pleased to have them come aboard,” Shea said. “To have two companies directly related to Steamboat, true representatives of what our community is all about, commit and see what we have going, that’s a huge endorsement for us.”

Ski 4 Yellow comes on the heels of the popular Ride 4 Yellow event in summer, where more than $300,000 was raised to fight cancer with the help of the Livestrong Foundation.
