“Thanks to our many sponsors, like Wells Fargo and Winter Park Resort, the NSCD is able to offer incentives levels for our Ski for NSCD fundraiser that includes ski passes, winter sporting gear, meals and lodging for the weekend,” said Becky Zimmermann, president and CEO of NSCD.
Debuting this year is an outside vendor area with nearly 20 vendors featuring the latest in ski equipment, clothing and accessories. There will also be dining and entertainment.
The weekend boasts three races: the Corporate Cup, a Pro Am style race where teams of five friends, family or coworkers are paired with an NSCD Competition Center athlete and compete for prizes; the Kids Snowplow Sprint, which features up-and-coming NSCD athletes and able-bodied young skiers; and the World Disabled Invitational, where disabled skiers from around the world compete for a spot on the 2014 Winter Paralympic team.
Other festivities throughout the weekend include the Après Ski Bash, a two-day silent auction, visits from Denver Bronco Alumni and cheerleaders and live entertainment.
