Sunlight Ski Patrol is very excited to be hosting National Days again at Sunlight Mountain Resort! Please forward this email to any and all patrollers to provide information about the event.
In order to plan for National Days, we ask that anyone attending register here: 2017 National Days Registration. Registration fees can be sent to Patroller Fred Schibi (address provided on Registration Form) or paid upon arrival. Anyone who registers online before Friday, March 3, will receive a FREE LUNCH on Saturday at PHQ.
Even with the last minute change in venue, we are happy to have some great deals to offer to patrollers and their families that attend: • Sunlight Lodge is offering a "Patroller" rate of $69/night for single and $89/night for double occupancy rooms. Reservations will need to be made ASAP and at least by February 26 to guarantee rates and availability. o If rooms at the lodge are booked up, there is also lodging at the Brettelberg Condos located at the resort. • Registration cost is $25 for all patroller "wearing a cross" and $35 for guests attending with patrollers. The fee will cover cost of lift tickets, apres ski appetizers and beer at the Sunlight Lodge Saturday. Anyone who registers online early will also receive FREE BBQ LUNCH at PHQ on Saturday. As well, the Volunteer Ski Patrol's annual fundraiser, the Defiance Challenge, is occurring the day before National Day, on Friday, March 3. Each year proceeds from this event go to Sunlight's Volunteer Ski Patrol and a patroller in need. This year we will donate proceeds to Dave Repsher, a Flight for Life nurse and former patroller at Copper Mountain that suffered extensive injuries in a helicopter crash in 2015. We welcome visiting patrollers to take full advantage of the great lodging deals at the resort and plan to arrive early to spectate or participate in our fundraiser and/or join in the festivities on Friday night.
Please don't hesitate to contact with any questions by email: email@example.com. We look forward to seeing everyone at National Days in March.
