Bear Valley’s season-closing race, Slush Cup, benefits snow sports education

Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 17, 2010 11:44 am

On Sunday, the Bear Valley ski area in northern California will say goodbye to the ski season. What better way to do that than with a race? Oh, how about a race whose proceeds go directly to benefit the Bear Valley Snow Sports Education Foundation?

That’s what’s going down on Sunday at Bear Valley. They’re having their 5th Annual Slush Cup Part Deux race, with proceeds benefitting the foundation. The race is open to all Bear Valley guests. It will be held on a pro-style dual course with divisions for Alpine and Non-Alpine. There will be multiple age divisions, for both guys and gals.

If you raced in the March 28th “Part One” event, registration is free. If you didn’t, fork up $30, and remember, it goes to a solid cause. Kids 12 and under race free with their paid parent, and registration fees do not include lift tickets.

Registration takes place on site from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday morning, with qualifying beginning at 10 a.m. and finals starting at 1 p.m. An awards ceremony and raffle will be held on the Sundeck at approximately 3 p.m.

The Bear Valley Snow Sports Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Bear Valley’s snowsports athletes as well as enhancing the experience of ski racing at Bear Valley.

Thanks for a great season, Bear Valley!
