This Giving Tuesday, we are asking for your help to PRIME THE PUMP! Many of you know that Blackhawk has begun snowmaking for the winter season, and we are excited to announce that Hills 0, 1, and 2 open this Saturday at 12:30pm, and the Siberian Highway is open for XC skiing!
What you may not have known is that we have a new high-capacity well for snowmaking! DNR approved our permit in November, and the well should be on-line within the next few weeks. This infrastructure allows us to make as much snow as possible during our increasingly rare windows of ideal temperatures and humidity, without waiting to refill the pond, which decreases our impact on the ecology of the pond.
We are at a crucial moment in our club’s nearly 75-year history to choose to support snow sports at Blackhawk for generations to come. We are asking all of our members and those who have benefited from our Club at different times in their lives to consider joining the Board in giving financial support to pay for the well. Please consider a $100 donation today! Donate here.
Stay tuned for more fun fundraising initiatives soon that will involve all members, young and old.
The Blackhawk Board of Directors
