Ski for Nei up at Sundance

by Bob Winter December 23 2008 0 Comments


On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie and Christian Nielson were in a small plane crash along with their flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. Johns, Arizona.  Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.  (Christian sustained burns on over 30% of his body, his wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%.)  Their hospital expenses have far exceeded their insurance coverage.

For the past four years, Stephanie has maintained a blog, the The Nei Nei Dialogues about her life at home as a wife and mom.  Canyon Sports is hoping to do something substantial and meaningful by raising enough money to alleviate some of the financial concern and hardship on the family.   Together with Sundance Ski Resort, Canyon Sports is hosting a ski day to be held on January 8 with all proceeds being donated to the Nielsens’ recovery fund.  (Stephanie was a ski instructor at Sundance)

With a donation of $100 an individual can enjoy a day on the slopes at Sundance with complimentary lunch from the Pizza Factory and ski/snowboard rentals from Canyon Sports.
