  • keep water in farming
  • help municipalities plan ahead
  • share between ag and environmental uses
  • bank water on the Colorado River

Ski-a-Thon Supports the Colorado Water Leaders Program

An enthusiastic group of skiers and snowboarders known as the Snow Riders for Rivers gathered at A-Basin May 5 to help raise awareness about their impact on the water resources of mountain towns, resort communities and downstream water users.

Skiers and snowboarders solicited pledges for cruising down the slopes of A-Basin all afternoon. Tanya Holtz, a CFWE member who organized the event, also coordinated the pledges, a barbecue and free concert after the event.

More than $1,000 was raised through donations and pledges to provide a scholarship for a teacher to participate in the 2007 Colorado Foundation for Water Education Water Leaders Course. Thank you!
