The Canadian Cancer Society is partnering with Whitewater Ski Resort for the third annual fundraiser Slopes for Hope event.

This event is an “Everest Style” ski-a-thon where participants either individually or in a team strive to ski the vertical of Mount Everest in one day at Whitewater and raise funds for the Cancer Society. Throughout the day there will be entertainment at the hill and a wind up prize ceremony will be held in the lodge.

The Slopes for Hope takes place March 1 at Whitewater.
