Steamboat Briefs: Ski Bumps, Fight Lumps in Steamboat for charity tour
March 12, 2011
Several Colorado outdoor enthusiasts are banding together for a whirlwind road trip to 27 ski areas in eight days, with the intention to shred for a cause.
The Ski Colorado Breast Cancer Awareness Tour will take a group of six skiers from Steamboat Springs to Telluride and everywhere in between as they try to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer prevention education, all while promoting healthy and active lifestyles.
The tour begins with Steamboat and Howelsen Hill on Sunday morning, and the group's bright pink RV will be tough to miss.
Ski a few runs with the people in pink, or e-mail skibumps firstname.lastname@example.org for information about dedicating a lap during the week to a loved one.
