We kicked off the 2013 Enduro bright and early this morning on April 17th! The Enduro is an event during which teams of two take laps on the Pallavicini chair from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and ski or ride along designated routes on the Pali to see who can make the most runs. Afterward, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., A-Basin will hold an après party in the A-Frame with live music from High 5, an Italian dinner buffet, New Belgium beer specials, and a silent auction with over 100 items including gift certificates to local establishments and ski gear from companies like Spyder, Marmot, and Black Diamond.
All proceeds from the Enduro go to a local non-profit or family. This year, proceeds will go to Jennifer (Drake) Oliver, A-Basin's Human Resources Generalist. Jen is currently battling a cancerous brain tumor, and these funds will go toward the costs of her diagnosis and treatment. Jen's father, Dave Drake, and his friend are participating in today's event along with 32 other teams. It's going to be a fun, celebratory day at the Basin, and I'm excited to get back out there and see how the participants are holding up.
