Ski Utah and local skiers set record
March 16, 2012
Ski Utah joined with a group of local skiers, the Park City Men’s Book Club, to ski all 14 Utah resorts in a single day Thursday. The group approached Ski Utah to become the first in history to ski all 14 Utah resorts in a single day in exchange for raising funds to benefit organizations including Huntsman Cancer Institute and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The 14 skiers began their day on March 15 at 3 a.m. at Utah’s most Southern resort, Brian Head, and completed their mission in record time at 7:45 p.m. at Beaver Mountain near Logan, Utah. The skiers have rivaled the previous Ski Utah record of skiing 13 resorts in one day set January 13, 2009. Since that time, Utah’s fourteenth resort – Eagle Point – opened near Beaver, Utah.
"Utah is famous for the unparalleled access of its ski and snowboard resorts," said Ski Utah Communications Director Jessica Kunzer in a press release. "This is why we were compelled to enjoy the unique opportunity to ski every resort in our state in a single day."
This mission was made possible with the support of Utah’s 14 ski and snowboard resorts, Canyons’ Farm Restaurant and Canyon Transportation. Ski Utah is the marketing firm owned and operated by the 14 statewide ski resorts that make up the Utah Ski and Snowboard Association. The organization has been creating brand awareness of and demand for the Utah wintersports product since its inception in 1978.
Park City Men’s Book Club raised $10,000 for the Huntsman Caner Institute and nearly $6,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
