Get some vertical; help the Boy Scounts. Ski at Snowbasin.

By Bob Winter Dec 9, 2008

Asset management service provider, Bob Aamodt, Inc., is giving businesses along Utah's Wasatch Front a chance to promote their company while supporting local youth programs through its second annual "Vertical Challenge" ski and snowboard event, scheduled for Friday, February 27, 2009 at Snowbasin Resort. The Vertical Challenge will support values-based programs sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America for more than 46,000 local youth in the Trapper Trails Council.

Businesses are invited to form company-sponsored teams to participate in the challenge to see which four-person team can ski or snowboard the most vertical feet in three hours.

"The challenge last February was the first time we have ever put together such a benefit and it was such a success for both company sponsors and the Boy Scouts that we have decided to make it an annual event," said Bob Aamodt, founder and CEO of Bob Aamodt, Inc. "We believe this is an outstanding way for companies to reward key employees for hard work, to build client relationships, and to help youth all at the same time."

Various "Vertical Challenge" sponsorship levels are available, beginning at $600 for a four-person team. Event and special category sponsorships are also open. Team sponsorships include a continental breakfast, lift passes, snack vouchers, lunch, and open skiing and snowboarding for all team challengers.
