The 4th Annual SKINNY Ski-A-Thon is Monday, March 31 at Squaw Valley!


On Monday, March 31, 2014 Squaw Valley (Olympic Valley, CA) will host the SKINNY Ski-A-Thon from 9am-4pm. Participants will complete as many laps on the KT-22 lift as possible on “SKINNY” skis with a waist of 70 millimeters or less. It will not be a race, but a casual event to have fun and enjoy the outdoors in the name of philanthropy. Participants will raise money for each completed lap and also gather flat donations with proceeds going to the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.


“Arcade Belt Co. is proud to be putting on the 4th annual Arcade Skinny Ski-A-Thon in benefit of High Fives Foundation.” Says David Bronkie, Managing Director, Arcade Belt Co “It’s been a joy witnessing the immense growth and support the event has garnered year after year, and we look forward to the fun that will be had at this years event as the local Tahoe community comes together to show support for athletes with life altering injuries.”
