Hi Fellow ski racers!

Join fellow winter sports supporters and golf enthusiasts for an exciting round of golf in the shadow of the spectacular Gore Mountains in stunning Vail, Colorado; while rubbing elbows with current and former US Ski Team Members and Coaches and current Colorado All-Star Members. Stars will include Olympic Gold Medalist Deb Armstrong; Long time US Ski Team star and Olympic 4th place DH skier Andy Mill; three-time Olympian, six-time World Cup winner and the U.S.’s third winningest woman skier ever Kristina Koznick; Colorado’s own Jason Rosener, 15th place finisher at the Olympic DH in Nagano; and others.

This great event benefits the Colorado Gold Medal Initiative, an athlete-centered talent development initiative; with the goal of sustainable Olympic excellence by Colorado athletes in snow sports.

In this exciting event, each foursome will have the opportunity to bid on the ski pro of their choice.

Teams will then be sold in a Calcutta style auction. Winning teams will win cash prizes for their owners, the rest of the proceeds will benefit RMD. All levels are welcome– you don’t have to be a great golfer to come join the fun and support a great cause!

Last year’s event funded $24,000 in Discipline and Gold Medal Initiative

Grants for Nordic Combined, Alpine and Freestyle! These exciting new projects are supporting the development of Colorado’s next generation of Snowsports Olympians!
