Slopes For Hope is an "Everest-style" ski-a-thon; individuals and teams attempt to ski/snowboard the vertical of Mt. Everest in one day at Whitewater Ski Resort. Teams can come up with names, wear costumes, and challenge their friends to add a bit more excitement. This event is a fund raiser for the Canadian Cancer Society, and is put together entirely by volunteers. This event is a great way to enjoy one of your favorite sports, and be helping toward a greater goal.
