Is this a breast cancer fundraiser?

Not just! The first pink ski day started at Vail Mountain in 2012. Pink Vail started as a fundraising event to support breast cancer, specifically, but has since grown to support all patients at Shaw Cancer Center in Vail, Colorado. Pink Park City was started in 2018 and is supporting research for ALL types of cancer by raising money for Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. Participants and donors even have the opportunity to restrict their funds to support research for a specific type of cancer.

How much does it cost to participate?

Registration fees:

  • $35 – General Participant
  • $135 – General Participant + Beanie
  • $500 – General Participant + Beanie and Jacket
  • $1,000 – VIP Participant (includes beanie, jacket, and entry to the VIP tent)

Participants are encouraged to help raise funds through their personal fundraising page and can receive incentives for reaching different fundraising levels. We recommend that everyone set a goal of raising $500.

Does the registration fee include a lift ticket?

No, you will need to purchase a lift ticket if you would like to participate in any on-mountain activities. You don’t need to have a lift ticket to enjoy Pink Park City.

Where does the money go?

100% of all funds raised go to support research for all types of cancers at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. By funding efforts to better understand the beginnings of cancer and more effectively treat cancer, you help relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for cancer patients, survivors, and their families when you give.
