Volunteer at Aspen Gay Ski Week for Free Passes

Author: , December 12th, 2011

Aspen Gay Ski WeekCelebrating its 35th year, Aspen Gay Ski Week 2012 kicks off January 15 with a trip down memory lane, along with all the parties and powder that have made it not only the nation’s largest and oldest gay ski event, but one of the most fun happenings of the season overall (read our post on Aspen Gay Ski Week in 2011). Plus, it’s a boon for charity: Proceeds from this year’s event benefit GLSEN, the Trevor Project, and the Point Foundation, in addition to select local organizations, and come with an opportunity to get some charity – in the from of free passes – for yourself, as well.

To get the best bang for your buck, purchase a Patron Pass ($750) or Black Diamond Pass ($300), offering savings of $275 and $130, respectively, versus buying individual tickets a la carte. Passes guarantee admission to all events, and include extras like day or week access to the Aspen Club & Spa, seating at the Downhill Costume parade, VIP gift bags, lift tickets, and a charitable donation.

Or save a bundle by volunteering it’s work, sure, but a great way to attend the events and earn a pass in the process. (We think that warm fuzzy feeling you can only get by pitching in beats a hot toddy any day.) From event setup to breakdown, as well as administrative assistance, the producers need all kinds of volunteers. E-mail Bryan Gonzales (bryan@gayskiweek.com) for info.

“Have fun, do good,” Shannon Wentworth, Sweet founding partner and CEO, said. “The volunteers on our cruise had such an amazing time doing our community service projects, we thought, why not do that in our own backyards?”

Sweet kicks off its tour in Orlando, Florida, on April 18, with a community run to support Haiti relief efforts and clean water projects all over the world. The 6-kilometer distance represents the average distance women and children all over the world walk each day to secure water.
