When:

Where:

Trailside Room

Come push yourself for a great cause! Stevens Pass is once again partnering with the American Cancer Society for this annual benefit. Form a team to raise money for the ACS, and push each other to ski or ride for 24 hours straight, all in the name of cancer research. To register yourself or a team, please visit the Hope on the Slopes website!

The 24-hour endurance challenge returns this season - participants are challenged to log two runs every hour for 24 hours! Participants can ski or ride from 9am Saturday until 9am Sunday. Please note, there is NO vertical challenge at this year's event. We will be logging runs based on access through RFID gates.

There will be sweet prizes for top individual fundraisers and more! If you've raised a minimum of $100 (by Wednesday, February 26th), you'll also receive a special Hope on the Slopes t-shirt!

This year's event will also include a bunch of fun activities throughout the day, including a Five Card Draw run, on-mountain scavenger hunt, costume contest and more!

ALL participants must have a completed, signed Stevens Pass waiver in order to participate - you can download this waiver HERE. A parent/guardian must sign waivers for anyone under the age of 18.
