SNOWBIRD, UTAH – Continuing its tradition of providing free Tram and lift rides while helping Utah’s hungry, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort announced today it will extend Customer Appreciation Days to four weekends. Beginning the weekend of Oct. 15-16, guests may receive a free Peruvian Express foot passenger ticket with the donation of a can of food, hygiene item or $3 donation to Wasatch Adaptive Sports.
“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 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 snowbird.com for updates on the schedule of operations.
Requested 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.
Offering the longest ski and snowboard season in Utah, Snowbird is scheduled to open for the 2010-11 season on Saturday, Nov. 19, weather permitting. Season passes are now on sale at Snowbird.com
