Backpack Buddies Tuesday | Starting Feb 8

We have partnered with Vancouver charity Backpack Buddies to help end child hunger in BC, by creating a new Tuesday, $39, lift ticket for one adult with one child.

The new $39 Tuesday lift ticket, $20 of which will go directly to Backpack Buddies, is for one adult and one child (12 and under) to ski or ride from anytime between 3:30pm to 9:30pm. The sale of one Backpack Buddies Lift Ticket will provide a weekend’s worth of food and snacks for a child facing hunger in BC.

It doesn't have to be your child. Reconnect with grandkids, nieces, and nephews (you can also bring your own kid!), or come up as a gang and ski club it. Remember, there are a limited amount of Backpack Buddies Lift Tickets available and if they are sold out for the Tuesday you want, you will need to purchase a different week.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 this year. We can only do this with your help.

How to collect your Backpack Buddies Lift Ticket 

  • Purchase in-advance and online, not available in-person, using the above link.
  • Bring your confirmation email, and child, to the Season Pass & Ticket Office at the top of Lodge Chair.
  • You will be issued with adult and child area passes or we will reload the child's existing area pass.
  • Go shred!

Backpack Buddies was founded in 2012 to fill the childhood hunger gap that exists over weekends, when children who rely on school meal programs are forced to go without. Twenty dollars gives one child enough food to fill an entire backpack... nine meals, fruit, veggies and healthy snacks, lasting the weekend and beyond.

Last year, with the support of generous donors, a committed community, and a team of young philanthropists, Backpack Buddies delivered over 1 million meals to children across British Columbia.
