Mini-CHaRM! Recycle Skis, Snowboards & Patagonia Clothes

Wildcat Base - 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
We are happy to partner with Utah Recycling Alliance and Patagonia for a Mini-CHaRM - Collection of Hard to Recycle Materials. Dig deep and take advantage of spring to clean out your space of old skis, snowboards and Patagonia clothing. Recycling is a difficult and costly good deed, to help our non-profit friends at URA we are suggesting a $3 donation with your drop-off.

Arborist Ski Around

TreeUtah will have a table and tent on the snow for those interested in volunteering and gaining some tree advice or general information on Utah's trees. At your convenience TreeUtah's arborist will lead groups into the woods on skis for a tree ecology tour of the ski area. Learn how to identify the different trees you see in the Wasatch mountains and how they interact with the environment around them.

2018 Après Earth Day & Film

Our Lady of the Snows - 5:00 to 8:30 pm: Join us for free appetizers and drinks après ski. Around 5:45 pm, we will be joined by community members to toast the evening and effort. Salutations will be followed by the Salomon TV film: 

Guilt Trip

An award winning film, this adventure seeks to put together a great group of skiers and a brazen, yet renowned glaciologist. The only thing greater than the group's desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. Loaded with guilt, they bring along Alun Hubbard, the glaciologist whose hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise. However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.

Thank you Sponsors for your support!
