On Sunday, April 16th, 2017, the High Fives Foundation and Phunkshun Wear will be taking over Copper Mountain, lapping all day on the American Flyer lift to raise funds for injured mountain action sports athletes. All are welcome and encouraged to wear throwback gear including one-piece snow suits, long poles, straight skis, shaped snowboards, etc.
Prior to the event, all participants are encouraged to reach out to their own networks for pledges and donations. I.e. fundraising is strongly recommended, but not required. Participating in the event is 100% free, except the cost of a lift ticket. $45 day tickets to Copper Mountain are available with participation. Join the party, and feel great about lending a hand (and a big high five) to a most worthy cause.

Our own Editor-in-Chief, Henrik Lampert, completed 40 laps at the inaugural Retro Shred-a-Thon for a one-day total of 68,000 vertical feet. Think you can up it?
