Please join the American Cancer Society to save lives and create a
world with more birthdays in association with Winter Park Ski Resort to
remember Thomas James Veit. The Thomas James Veit Ski Down Against Cancer
is coming to Winter Park Resort for its fifth year this Spring. The TJV Ski
Down started in 2011 as an event to honor former patroller Tom Veit, who was
taken from us by colon cancer after a fight that lasted over three years. Tom
patrolled with the Winter Park Professional Ski Patrol for twelve years,
building relationships and fond memories that endure to this day.
Once again, the Winter Park Ski Patrol will be teaming up with the Cavett Kids
Foundation for another exciting ski down. The Cavett Kids will
participate in the ski down, riding down the mountain in Patrol rescue
The after-hours skiing portion of the event is open to all resort
employees, resort volunteers, and tenants of Winter Park Resort. Day
events include on snow games at the base of the Super Gauge and Zephyr Express
lifts. The day events are open to the public with all donations
benefitting the American Cancer Society.
The schedule of events is listed below. Please plan to
attend this very special opportunity to raise funds for cancer research.
The après ski event, including a silent auction, will be held at
West Portal Station at the base of Winter Park Resort. West Portal will also
have a special menu for the event as well as drink specials for all
participants with certain proceeds going to the American Cancer
Society. The après ski event will be from 3-5 PM and will include
free music along with drawings for prizes.
The on mountain ski down will begin around 5 PM and can be seen
from the base of Winter Park Resort. The participants will ski down
Little Pierre trail to Lower Hughes trail and finish at the bottom of Winter Park
Resort. The silent auction will begin at 6 PM. The auction prizes
will be available for viewing starting at 4 PM in West Portal Station.
Please mark Saturday March 21,
2015 as a day to ski, enjoy the outdoors and fight with Winter Park Resort
employees against cancer.
For over a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday
threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we’ve learned
through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 15
percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and
2005. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created
the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer
survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year. Now that’s a reason
to party, so join us!
