With over $30,000 fundraised for the breast cancer research, 687,260 vertical feet logged, and an assortment of creative pink costumes, the Pink Chase was a huge success! 19 teams combining a total of 57 women-skiers, snowboarders, tele skiers of varying ages– youthful 23 year olds to bright eyed 56 year olds participated in the Pink Chase Fundraiser at Keystone Resort, CO on December 12th. Despite the frigid temperatures, the women arrived in the early hours, energetic, and dressed from head to toe in an array of pink costumes—full piece bunny suits to Lady Gaga impersonators (Gaga for Gnar of course!), snow angels, and pink capes ready for a day of riding. Apres started promptly at 3PM at Parrot Eyes, followed by the awards ceremony (and raffle), mc’ed by K2’s very own Michael Powell. Tons of giveaways from our sponsors. PINK Hats were the hit, and the party didn’t stop till DJ Shares turned off his turn tables.
Be sure to check out the photos from the event! Hope to see you all and your friends back next year! Check back in the spring for details on PINK CHASE 2010!
We would also like to thank all of the sponsors and volunteers for making this event possible. We couldn’t have done it without you!
The PINK CHASE FUNDRAISER offers women of all ages and disciplines: the opportunity to be involved in an all women’s snow event, make a difference by fundraising for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), win great prizes and have a ton of fun skiing and riding with the K2 Alliance, their friends and other women teams for a day!
