Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 30, 2011 6:05 am

SNOWBIRD, UT - The tradition of Customer Appreciation Days continues at Snowbird Ski Resort. Starting on October 15-16, guests of the resort that make a donation of canned food, hygene products or a $3 donation to Wasatch Adaptive Sports will receive free Tram and lift rides at the resort. The program is so popular that Snowbird has extended it to four weekends.

“Snowbird’s Customer Appreciation Days are a meaningful way to support our community and at the same time show our guests that we appreciate their enthusiasm and loyalty to our resort,” said Bob Bonar, President of Snowbird.

All food and hygiene items collected throughout these weekends will be donated to the Utah Food Bank, and all monetary donations will benefit Wasatch Adaptive Sports. Last year, a record-breaking 6,956 pounds – the equivalent of 5,500 meals – was donated to the Utah Food Bank as the result of the annual Customer Appreciation Days. In addition, $2,215 was raised for Wasatch Adaptive Sports.

To take advantage of the offer, guests may bring either a can of food, a hygiene item or $3, to Snowbird on any Saturday or Sunday from Oct. 15 through Nov. 6 between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Due to Tram maintenance, guests will receive a Peruvian Express foot passenger ticket the first two weekends (Oct. 15, 16, 22, or 23). Guests will receive an Aerial Tram foot passenger ride the last two weekends (Oct. 29, 30 or Nov. 5, 6), weather permitting. Please check for updates on the schedule of operations.

Suggested hygiene items are toothpaste, soap, baby diapers and wipes. Preferred canned food items are peanut butter, tuna, chili, soup/stew, vegetables, fruit, beans and spaghetti sauce. Acceptable boxed foods are rice, macaroni and cheese, boxed dinners, cake mix and pasta. Special-needs foods, such as low-sugar, low-sodium, are also appreciated.

Snowbird is scheduled to open for the 2010-11 season on Saturday, Nov. 19, weather permitting. Season passes are now on sale at
