Some say the only way to really bring in the snow is to celebrate it with a party. At Kirkwood Mountain Sports from November 9th through December 15th, we are throwing a big “Welcome to Winter” party with a sale to open our doors and bring in the season properly! In addition, we will be hosting a “Black Friday Sale” on the traditional day after Thanksgiving, combined with a community fundraising event benefiting Discovery Blind Sports (DBS).
Discovery Blind Sports is a 100% volunteer led group and has called Kirkwood their home since the 1970’s. They have pioneered the guiding of blind athletes of all ages and backgrounds out on the slopes.
On Friday, November 29th, come to Kirkwood Mountain Sports Retail shop in the Village Plaza and save up to 20% off the entire store for this one special day. There will be raffles throughout the day and a bake sale with all proceeds going to support DBS.
Our Kirkwood Specialty Sports Venture (SSV) team supports Discovery Blind Sports during our “Adopt-A-Cause” drive between opening day and January 5th. Each of our regional SSV stores seeks out a local charity/non-profit organization to support through a donation and match program during the holiday season. Vail Resorts Echo matches 50 cents to each $1.00 donated up to $100. In total, SSV and Echo are able to support over 20 local non-profit organizations with these much needed donations. Last year the program generated $193,569 (includes a $62,357 match from VR Echo)! To date the Adopt-A-Cause program has generated over $1,000,000!
Last year Kirkwood Mountain Sports stores in our Village Plaza and at Timber Creek brought in close to $1,000 dollars for DBS! This year our goal is much higher and you can help by purchasing your winter gear at Kirkwood Mountain Sports on Black Friday and donating to this very worthy cause.
Our “Welcome to Winter Sale” will continue from the two Saturdays before the resort opens, November 9th and 16th, through December 15th. This preseason sale is perfect for looking for deals on last year’s gear while scoping out this year’s new items.
