Join us for Pink Vail on March 25, 2017. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way. People run, walk and grow facial hair for cancer. In Vail, we ski! Pink Vail is a fundraiser that brings nearly 3,000 people, dressed in pink, together on Vail Mountain for an all-day event with live music, deck parties, costume contest and more.
Pink Vail proceeds benefit all patients at Shaw Regional Cancer Center through improvements to patient care and by funding our Spirit of Survival program, providing all patients the opportunity to receive free exercise training, nutrition coaching, emotional support, massages, acupuncture, outdoor adventures and much more. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient’s quality of life, but are not typically covered by insurance.
In 2016, Spirit of Survival provided patients with 2,768 fitness sessions; 450 wellness and exercise classes; 583 counseling sessions; 525 massage, reiki and acupuncture sessions; 423 nutrition consultations, as well as hundreds of group hikes, ski days, hut trips, cooking demos, art classes and educational lectures. Funds also supported 16 patients through the cancer center’s new Slim for Survival program.
What makes Chair #2 Mid Mountain Legendary? Chair #2 is often overlooked as simply being a method of transportation to other areas of the mountain, but it also has some Legendary terrain of it’s own. With kid’s adventure zones like Chaos Canyon, and Porcupine Alley, this is a kid-approved area!
Wow – what a spectacular weekend it was in Vail for the Burton US Open. It started off with a powder day on Thursday, and then for the 5th year in a row, beautiful weather was had throughout the competition finals!
The weather looks flawless and you’ve got a three-day weekend. There’s only one possible way you’re going to spend your day: enjoying a picture perfect day skiing. You hit the road early and beeline for first chair; cruise up to the gondola, only to find that you had the same idea as other people.
