This year’s Mothership Classic fundraising event (organized by the High Fives Foundation) has wrapped. The stoke was high, the fits were funky, and laps were plentiful.
Here are some initial stats:
- 288 Participants
- 44 Laps From The Top Team
- $177k Raised
While everyone had a good time, the most important detail is that over $177,000 was raised! That’s over 70 thousand dollars more than the original goal of $105,000.
Thanks to Palisades Tahoe, all the dedicated sponsors, and participants, KT-22 has never looked better.
The Mothership Classic is a pledge-driven ski-a-thon event held each Spring in Lake Tahoe, CA at Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw Alpine) at the KT22 chairlift. On the day of the event, each participant tests themselves to hot lap KT22 as many times as possible from the first chair to the last. They will be on skinny skis, retro snowboards, mono-skis, snow blades, etc. Nostalgic ski attire is encouraged.
Awards are given out for a variety of categories including:
- Most Laps
- Most Money Raised
- Best Costume
- Raddest Goggles
- And More
Via The High Fives Foundation, all funds raised go directly to the healing efforts of athletes that have suffered life-changing injuries.
It looks like everyone had a great time. The only thing missing was YOU! Maybe you should participate next year. C’mon, you can win prizes, have a huge amount of fun, and support an amazing charity.
