The clock is started. We are excited for this year's team fundraiser, our annual Ski & Board-a-thon. As a non-profit organization, the monthly dues that we charge our families are only a fraction of the money required to cover all of the operational costs our team sees each year (approximately $850k). The Club runs many fundraisers throughout the year to help raise funds for the Club's operational expenses (Donation day, food booths at the local festivals, team gear sales, etc); this is the only one that we ask our Athlete's participation in.

This event helps raise money from friends and family that is used to directly offset the cost of annual registration for all of our Athletes, as well as subsidize our financial aid program that helps families who might not otherwise be able to join us at all without some assistance. As a non-profit organization, the monthly dues that we charge our families are cost prohibitive for many kids in our community, preventing them the formative social and athletic experience of competitive skiing/snowboarding.

TSSC has almost 400 athletes in it's programs this year (Alpine Racing, Freestyle Park, Freestyle Moguls, Big Mountain, Snowboard, Nordic Skiing, our junior program called Gravity, Figure Skating), last year we helped 50 families and nearly 80 children join the Team that would not have otherwise been able to join through fundraising efforts like this!

So each year we run a fundraiser, which brings all of our kids together to do the Annual Ski & Board-a-thon event.

This year's top producer will win an iPod Touch, 2nd place will win a $50 gift certificate to High Pie, 3rd place $25 gift certificate to Baked in Telluride. Runners up 1-3 will get a TSSC Pyeongchang Olympians tee-shirt.

On Saturday, February 24th, our youngest athletes will wear costume it celebration of the conclusion of our fundraiser and see who can get the most vertical feet skied in a day! Such a fun day!!

Best Team costume and Highest vertical skied will win a pizza party after our annual Nastar Alpine Race on the last weekend of Club for our youngest members, March 3rd (come out and watch if you're in town!).

Remember to watch our Olympians at Pyeongchang! Keaton McCargo, Freestyle Moguls, Hagen Kearney, Snowboard Boarder Cross, Gus Kenworthy, Freestyle Slopestyle. All three of these athlete hail from Telluride and all three of these athletes were members of the Telluride Ski & Snowboard Club when they were starting out, we are so proud of them and so stoked for the inspiration they provide our youth of Telluride!!
