Ski 4 Yellow's discount for early sign-up ends Sunday
Early registration for the second annual Ski 4 Yellow event March 31 has been extended through Sunday. The discounted rate is $25. Beginning Monday, the registration cost jumps to $100 per person.
Ski 4 Yellow is a Livestrong-partnered event. In addition to the registration fee, each Ski 4 Yellow participant commits to raising at least $500 for cancer-related initiatives. Skiers and riders can sign up individually or as teams.
Half of all proceeds from the Ski 4 Yellow event will be granted to cancer initiatives in the Yampa Valley. The other half will be donated to Livestrong for its global cancer initiatives. Ski 4 Yellow is part of the 4 Yellow foundation, which also organizes the annual Ride 4 Yellow mountain bike ride in Steamboat.
In the two years since its inception, the 4 Yellow foundation has granted $100,000 to Steamboat Springs organizations that play a role in helping those dealing with cancer.
As for the event itself, Ski 4 Yellow participants partner with a local Olympian for a day of skiing at Steamboat Ski Area. The list of participating Olympians includes Todd Lodwick, Johnny Spillane, Billy Kidd, Deb Armstrong, Nelson Carmichael and Caroline Lalive.
Each group and its Olympian spends the morning of March 31 completing a series of on-mountain challenges, such as riding every chairlift and visiting on-mountain landmarks. Ski 4 Yellow is limited to the first 200 registered skiers and riders. The registration fee includes event memorabilia as well as tickets to the March 30 Ski 4 Yellow gala and live auction.
