Light It Up! Programs Fundraiser

So far this season, our full efforts have netted us $52,342. Let’s keep the momentum building with more exciting fundraising opportunities coming up this season, our 51/49 Split and Basket Raffle.


Programs Basket Raffle

Each year we ask that the competitive teams in Snowboarding, Freeski and Racing put together a themed basket of goodies that we raffle off in support of the Programs Fundraiser.   

How to participate: 
Basket Raffle will take place on March 2-3 weekend, tickets will be available on March 2 from 10:00-4:00 and March 3 from 9:00-2:00. Winners will be announced at 2:30 pm on Sunday, March 3. 

We need Basket Captains! 
Competitive Snowboard: Development team, GROMS Freestyle, OEST Freestyle, Snowboard Racing, Freeski Squad, GROMS Freeski 

The success of the basket raffle depends on everyone involved.  Your job will be to gather items and assemble the basket.  Your team has options; everyone on the team can bring in an item that corresponds to your basket theme, or you may choose to ask everyone for $10-20 and you go shopping! 

Once you have your items, simply fill a basket and wrap it with cello and ribbon. Please also include a list of the contents in the basket and drop the finished product to the Programs office by March 1, 2024.   


Canada Snowboard RAD Camp

The Riders Advancement and Development Program (RAD Program) is a Canada Snowboard initiative that aims to provide development opportunities to all stages of athletes and coaches. Under technical leadership of Calynn Irwin, this Halfpipe Awareness and Development initiative will provide an introduction to halfpipe for athletes and coaches on Friday, March 8 following the Halfpipe Jr. Nationals competition at Alpine.
