About Ski to Defeat ALS - Colorado


There is a lot to learn about Ski to Defeat ALS, coming up on February 26, 2017.  We have broken everything down into three major topics: About the Ski, About Your Registration, and About Event Day. This will walk you through the basics of the Ski to Defeat ALS, then how to register for the event, and what to expect on Ski Day.

About The Ski

The Ski to Defeat ALS is a one-day ski event, on February 26, 2017, designed to appeal to every level of skier/snowboarder.  Participants are welcome to ski one run or one hundred runs! A complimentary lunch and will be provided and awards will be given to the Top Individual Fundraiser, Top Fundraising Team, and team with the best Team Spirit!

Be sure to secure your spot today! In 2016, more than 40 participants worked together to successfully raise more than $21,000, making a BIG difference in the fight against ALS.

About Your Registration

How to Register?

So you are ready to register?! Great! We are so excited to have you on board. You can register online in three ways:

  1. Join a Team -- If you are joining an existing team that a friend started, you can first register yourself then search for your team.
  2. Start a Team -- If you plan to captain a new team and are ready to get the wheels rolling, register yourself first, then create your team
  3. Join as an Individual -- If you are signing up on your own without any team affiliation.

Registration Fees

Each participant will pay a registration fee to secure their place in the Ski to Defeat ALS. This registration fee helps to pay for the lift ticket and complimentary lunch.

All Riders:
$50 until January 1st (Early-Bird Registration)- Use Dicount Code: EARLY (case sensitive)
$60 after January 1st
$75 on Ski Day (February 26th)

Required Fundraising Minimum

We ask that each participant raise a minimum of $150 as they prepare for the Ski To Defeat ALS. By registering, you agree to meet this fundraising minimum. Fundraising for The ALS Association is obviously a very direct way of supporting our mission, but with each person you ask to support you, you are also spreading important awareness for ALS. Fundraising is easy and fun -- and we are here to help you get started and to surpass your fundraising goal!

Youth participants ages 14 and under will NOT be required to meet the $150 fundraising minimum.

Fundraising Incentives

  • All active participants will receive an ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter beanie!
  • Participants who raise $300+ will receive a pair of ALS Association aviator sunglasses!
