Ski Crested Butte for $45 With a Food Donation

Mt. Crested Butte, CO – In an effort to help the local community, Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) in Colorado is hosting two Food Pantry Donation Days this winter:  January 8 and April 2. Both Food Pantry Donation Days support the Crested Butte and Gunnison food banks. Guests who donate three non-perishable, non-expired food items or one pack of diapers will receive a voucher for a $45 full day lift ticket, valid for that day only.

“As a company we value our local community and are always looking for ways to be supportive, and give back. Providing food for both the Gunnison and Crested Butte food pantries is a great way for the CBMR family to help.” explains Ethan Mueller, president of CBMR. ”We are proud to be doing this event for the third year in a row to support families in need in the Gunnison Valley.”

When a guest brings three cans of non-perishable, non-expired food or one pack of diapers to the Adventure Center on January 8 or April 2 between 8 a.m. and noon, they will receive a coupon for a $45 lift ticket to be used that day. Volunteers will help collect food donations and sort into boxes. CBMR will then transport the goods to the food shelves. The local food pantries encourage canned protein items, such as tuna, chili, peanut butter and soups, but of course all donations are welcome.
