Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 10, 2009 10:56 am

The 2nd annual K2 “Pink Chase” event will be going down this weekend on Saturday December 12th at Colorado’s Keystone Resort. The event aims to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) by having a ton of fun skiing and riding with the K2 Alliance, friends and other women teams for a day!

Teams of 3 women will compete against each other by trying to ski the most vertical feet. On the day of the event, each team will receive a mountain package that includes: a pink chase beanie, vertical data of each run, bonus tents around the mountain that earn teams’ additional vertical bonus, and credentials to record their vertical acquired.

Strategy will be key to victory. Teams must determine the best approach with the access of several lifts, multiple trails, and the assortment of bonus tents around the mountain. Teams are encouraged to dress up, or accessorize in pink. Off the mountain, teams are encouraged to fundraise for the cause up till a day before the event.

Well we have been encouraging teams to register for the last few months, it’s not too late to get involved.

Registration is still only $40 dollars per girl until the day before the event. On the day of the event, participants can only register as a team for a $150 fee paid for in cash or local check.

Even if your a guy and unable to register, come out to support and cheer on the ladies for this amazing cause.
