When you're the premier manufacturer of sustainable, eco-friendly wooden skis and snowboards, you get to partner with a lot of like-minded people and organizations. We're in a unique position to provide charities with a product that really resonates with our local Colorado culture.
We often design a custom top-sheet for the charity on one of our best-selling ski models for a raffle giveaway or silent auction, allowing the cause to raise funds to use as they see fit.
With space at a premium as Denver continues to grow, we're also able to provide a venue for fundraising events at our Craft Skiery. This includes donating our staff time and using relationships in the community to provide beverage service, as well as our contacts in the music industry to host a fun event that can reach more broadly than the charity may be able to provide without us.
Below are just a few of the ways we've gotten involved with giving back to a community we love and appreciate.
One obvious partnership for us is for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. They don't have a space to host large classes and are able to provide free classes to the outdoor community out of our space. The Wells Fargo Cup is the longest running professional ski race in the country, as well as the largest fundraiser for the National Center for Disabled Skiers. The energy and enthusiasm around this event is incredible, and we love providing skis for their silent auction.
is a local Denver based non-profit dedicated to helping youth ages 15-24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Our event for Urban Peaks really rocked the house with music by The New Mastersounds and raffle for custom New Mastersound skis.
One of first employees, and a former rider for us, was paralyzed and received care at Craig Hospital
, which educated us on their amazing resources and level of care. We've since become similarly involved with them. We have also supported Swim Across
American, with all proceed to Children's Hospital Colorado Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders.
