Besides funds and transportation to ski, the kids need support from the adults in their life and access to ski days at Telluride. Participating in the Telluride Gravity Project should give each kid a pass, bus ride, and chaperones to get out and ski or board. With plenty of gear in the area and the ski swaps, craigslist and Ebay, kids of all ages and ski levels should be able to get access to gear.
Chaperones & Mentors
Telluride offers a controlled environment with groomed trails, beginners-advanced terrain, and access to amenities. One amenity missing are chaperones, mentors and teachers willing to lead a group of kids around the mountain. Or spend an hour or two giving a lesson. What do you like to ride? Here's your chance to share what you know and love to the next generation of snow addicts.
Let's face it, without financial contributions this project is pretty mute. Getting a penny per vertical foot would raise $10,000 for the kids to be applied to transportation, passes, special needs for the Adaptive Program. It would go a long way to getting the kids sliding in snow. A gofundme account has been set up for donations that will go directly to the Ouray School R-1.
