After less than average precipitation this winter, front range Colorado suffered a massive wildfire fueled by dry grass and high winds. On December 30th, Boulder County was devastated by the Marshall Fire, which started as a grass fire and was fueled by high-speed winds of up to 100mph. It tore through 6,026 acres of land, destroying over 900 structures, most of which were in residential areas. 

In response to the disaster, Copper Mountain Resort and Eldora Mountain will be selling $99 lift tickets to raise financial support for the victims of the fire. The ski areas will be partnering with POWDR’s Play Forever Fund, which specializes in providing both financial support as well as volunteering support for those in need. In this case, funds will be going to families and victims who lost homes and need financial support due to losses from the fire.

This Friday, January 7th, lift tickets for Eldora Mountain and Copper Mountain Resort will be $99. The resorts will be teaming up with POWDR’s Play Forever Fund to sell the discounted tickets, $5 from each ticket sold will be donated to the fund. Not only will $5 be donated, but both Copper Mountain and Eldora will be matching the donation, totaling 10 dollars in donations to the Marshall Fire victims.

Tickets can be purchased through the Play Forever Fund, as well as through both Eldora and Copper Mountain. Direct donations for victims can be made through the Community Foundation and are greatly appreciated.
