Steamboat Springs, Colo. – March 12, 2018
Chaos Headwear Spokesman, Chris Anthony Ski-Athon at SNÖBAHN
for Education and Inspiration for Colorado Snow Industry
Fundraiser for the Youth Initiative Project
Steamboat Springs, Colo. – March 12th, 2018. Chaos spokesperson and athlete Chris Anthony, Founder of Anthony Adventures and the Youth Initiative Project, will ski non-stop to raise money for Colorado kids. Join CHAOS HATS and Chris Anthony Tuesday, March 13th at 6:30 pm at the SNÖBAHN in Centennial, Colorado.
Skiing non stop is not an easy feat, no rest, no chairlift. We interviewed the owner, Sadler Merrill of SNÖBAHN, to date top skiers have only lasted 45 minutes. Join us to see what CHAOS PRO Chris Anthony is able to achieve.
SNÖBAHN has reported that the vertical feet that can be skied per hour with the SNÖBAHN ramp at full speed is 21,315 vertical ft/hour when skiing at max pitch and max speed on the slopes at SNÖBAHN. Based on additional research*, one can achieve more vertical in an hour, at a SNÖBAHN facility than an average day of heliskiing.
Reference sites below, average vertical per day of heliskiing*
• Mike Wiegles – 15,000 – 25,000
• Points North Heli Skiing 20,000 – 30,000
• Powder Hounds 14,271 – 16,400
CHAOS Hats with SNÖBAHN, is sponsoring this pledge night for a dollar amount per vertical feet skied by Chris. Pledge here. The event is open to the public, join us for drinks and appetizers to help encourage Chris ski as much vertical as possible in one shot.
Donations from Pledges will directly benefit The Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project. Chris is 501c non-profit status under the strict supervision of the Colorado Non-Profit Development Center. Chris has reached over 70,000 students in 20 years. This year alone as a non-profit he has impacted 3,649 students since September and handed out over $30,000 in financial support.
Here is a little bit about SNÖBAHN
Over 90% of the ski and snowboard population lives in urban and suburban areas where mountain access is not readily available. Even in gateway cities like Denver or San Francisco, day-trip ski resort access is becoming increasingly difficult. SNÖBAHN allows an individual to partake in these sports close to home with little to no planning. SNÖBAHN provides efficiency which will give people the ability to learn, develop and train in a way that does not require committing the better part of a day to travel and chairlifts.
SNÖBAHN is a combination of many things for many people including our early learners’ program for kids ages 3-10, our adaptive ski programs, our rehabilitation capacity, continuing all the way through our competitive conditioning programs for ski and snowboard athletes. In addition to slopes, patrons will be able to enjoy mixing in the SNÖBAR – a comfortable lounge area complete with coffee, beer and wine sales, light concessions, comfortable seating, WiFi and flat-screen TV’s. From corporate events to birthday parties SNÖBAHN, offers the perfect space to hold your next event.
