Fifth Annual Ski Day with Carl

29 Mar Fifth Annual Ski Day with Carl

“This is the funnest day of my life!”

Kids Up Front owes a huge thank you to Carl, an anonymous donor who brought an amazing idea to us which has grown to become one of our signature events! Carl, thank you for imagining “Ski Day” and making it happen!

With Carl’s support, Kids Up Front just hosted our fifth annual ski trip at Nakiska for a day of fun in the mountains! Kids received VIP treatment as they geared up, donned their helmets, and honed their “pizza snowploughs” down the bunny hill with the help of experienced instructors. The all-inclusive trip included return chartered bus transportation, ski rentals, lessons, lift tickets, lunch and snacks!

The weather was amazing and the views were incredible. Bright, sunny and warm weather made skiing a breeze; thank you to Burton Canada for helping with outerwear needs on this day! It could not have been better!

NONE of the children had ever tried skiing before, so it was fun to see them challenge themselves, get back up when they fell, and have some laughs with each other. Their pride in their success was evident in their smiles and high fives.  

Thank you to all the patient, talented and encouraging staff and instructors at Nakiska for getting our kids safely geared up and on the hill for their very first ski experience! It was a huge success. 

A big thank you to the school staff who helped to organize the group, collect all the kids’ sizing details, and help arrange parent volunteers. We really appreciate the time and investment you made to make this day such a wonderful experience.

As always, we are grateful to our donors and supporters who appreciate the magic that our field trips can bring; for many, a day in the mountains would not happen without our program!  We are fortunate to have many wonderful champions like Carl, who have a “great idea” that becomes an amazing reality.
