While the season started out slowly, the local mountains in Vancouver sure are looking spectacular these days! If you need any more reason to head up the mountain to ski or snowboard, Mt Seymour will once again be hosting its weekly Shred for the Cause events on Monday nights.

Starting this Monday, January 20th, those who identify as female can ski and snowboard at Mt Seymour for just $15 with proceeds from every lift ticket going to a local non-profit charity.

Last year, Shred for the Cause raised an outstanding $27,000 for the local, community-based charity called The Bloom Group. This organization has been providing some of the most progressive social services in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside for over 50 years, including low-barrier shelters for women and children.

If you are interested in participating in the fundraiser and to ski or snowboard for just $15, head up to Mt Seymour every Monday night from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm until March 23rd.

Men are also welcome to join the fun and enjoy the evening as well, lift tickets for men are just $35 for the evening.

Tickets will be sold out of the ticket booths at the Season Pass & Ticket Office. Ticket and rental packages will be sold in the Alpine Activity Centre.

To add to the festive atmosphere, there will be drink and food specials and a fun scavenger hunt with prizes hidden on the mountain from Helly Hansen.

And if you’re wondering why only women are given the discounted rate, Mt Seymour has this to say: “Snowboarding and skiing have been traditionally male-dominated sports and here at Mt Seymour we want to equal the odds. Only around 33% of skiers or snowboarders are female and we want to encourage as many women and girls as possible to ski and snowboard to grow the sports we love. We all know that if Mom shreds then the rest of the family will follow and since we are a family mountain we need women to stay engaged and participating in mountain sports so we can pass our passion for the mountains down to the next generation.”
