Shred-A-Thon participants lap the American Flyer lift while raising funds for injured athletes
(Copper, Colo. April 6, 2017) — On Sunday, April 16, 2017, the High Fives Foundation will travel to Colorado to host the second annual Retro Shred-A-thon at Copper Mountain Resort, along with Phunkshun Wear. The event is presented in conjunction with partners GoPro, Kind Design, Craig Hospital, and Icelantic Skis. Shred-A-Thon participants will spend the day lapping the American Flyer lift as many times as possible with friends, all while wearing retro ski gear — one-piece snowsuits, skinny skis, retro snowboards, and other flashy throwbacks.
“With the success of last year’s event we just had to come back” says Executive Director, Roy Tuscany of High Fives Foundation. “We truly combine the goals of fun and raising funds for the organization in these events, so coming back to Colorado is so exciting.”
Copper Mountain Resort will be offering discounted lift tickets at $45 to those participating in the event.
“Retro shred is coming back to Copper Mountain and I couldn’t be more excited; this is easily one of my favorite on-hill events.” said Jay Badgley, CEO of Phunkshun Wear masks. “Come out in your best vintage ski gear and help raise money for the High Fives Foundation!”
