From Staff Reports
Great Divide Volunteer Ski Patrol will have its annual Retro Day and Poker Run fundraiser on Saturday and folks are encouraged to break out their retro gear and equipment for a fun day on the snow.
“Retro Day is a celebration of the (camaraderie) and rich history skiing and snowboarding at Great Divide has provided our community,” Tina Buttleman, Great Divide Volunteer Ski Patrol director, said in a news release.
She said it is also a great opportunity to support the volunteer ski patrollers who help keep the fun on the slopes safe all season.
Buttleman said Saturday will have fun-filled events for the family that include a raffle, poker run, best-dressed competition, music and prizes, including new ski and snowboard packages. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 7385 Belmont Drive in Marysville.
The ski patrol is selling raffle tickets for ski and snowboard packages and donated gear and prizes from area businesses. Raffle tickets are being sold by volunteer patrollers. Donations will help support training and equipment to help keep people safe on the slopes.
