Vail Valley Snowshoe Hash raises funds for sustainability

VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – The Eagle Valley Alliance for Sustainability is hosting its second annual Snowshoe Hash Fundraiser in Colorado’s Vail Valley at the Cordillera Valley Club at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 1.

The event will be held in collaboration with Cordillera’s 2010 Simple Charity Snowshoe Series. Run amok in snowshoes, Alliance for Sustainability staff and directors talk sustainability and lead you on a romp around beautiful Cordillera Valley Club.

“We all had a great time last year at the Full Moon Hash and look forward to seeing everyone come out again this year to support the Alliance,” says Megan Gilman, chairwoman of the Alliance’s board of directors. “We are excited to kick off our 2010 schedule, which will include involvement in the EnergySmart Loan program, Party for the Planet in Eagle, Green Drinks, Energy Star homes initiatives, and many other fun events and initiatives for our community.”

Cordillera Valley Children’s Club will provide child care at no additional cost (although tips are appreciated). The children’s clubhouse is located on the lower level of the Valley Clubhouse. There will be games, arts and crafts and Nintendo Wii, among other entertainment. The Children’s Club can accept the first 15 children, ages 3 and up. Call the Nordic Center at 970-926-5100 to reserve a space.

Registration for the snowshoe begins at 5:30 p.m. and hashing commences at 6:30 p.m. from the Cordillera Valley Club on the north side of Edwards. A $25 adult pre-registration ($30 registration at the race) includes a post-hash meal and cash bar. Bring your own equipment.
