Winter Park’s uphill skiing sales will benefit 3 local nonprofits this season

All proceeds from uphill skiing sales at Winter Park Resort this year will benefit three local nonprofits.

Uphill skiers at Winter Park Resort will need to pre-purchase a $25 armband that is good for the full 2021-2022 season. The funds raised from this will go toward Grand County Search and Rescue, Colorado Rapid Avalanche Deployment dog teams, and Friends of Berthoud Pass.

Last winter, Winter Park Resort was able to donate more than $45,000 from these sales to Grand County Search and Rescue.

Uphill skiing, also called “uphilling,” has been growing in popularity. Winter Park Resort says it provides a way for visitors to “earn their turns” and explore the resort in a new way.

The armband identifies an uphill skier as somebody who has read and agreed to the resort’s rules. They have access to more than 1/3 of Winter Park’s 3,081 skiable acres. Click here for a map of the uphill routes.
