Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort Holds Clean Up the Slopes Day, Saturday, July 9

Volunteers needed for post-season cleanup effort that includes a chance to win a season pass

June 30, 2011 - PRLog -- Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort (LVSSR) is seeking volunteers for Clean Up the Slopes Day, its annual litter pick-up and post-season celebration that takes place on Saturday, July 9 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.. Following a litter pick-up on the slopes, base and parking areas, volunteers can enjoy a barbecue lunch and take complimentary scenic chairlift rides.

During the litter pick-up, a few lucky volunteers will be rewarded with great prizes.  A season pass for the 2011/12 season, along with four pairs of day lift tickets, will be hidden on the mountain for volunteers to find.

Individuals or groups can register by emailing ridenski@lvssr.com. Business, community and social groups are encouraged to participate. LVSSR asks that groups specify the number of people in their party.

Volunteers should dress in hiking attire and be prepared for a day in the outdoors by bringing sunscreen, a hat, proper eyewear and footwear, as well as clothing appropriate for the day’s weather forecast. LVSSR will provide water for volunteers throughout the day. Upon arrival at the sign-in table in front of the Big Horn Café base lodge deck, volunteers will be provided garbage bags and gloves.

“This is a great opportunity to bring the local ski and board community together in the off-season and to meet others with shared interests,” says Curt Sheffield, LVSSR’s director of business affairs.  One of those shared interests is the environment; LVSSR has a strong stance on protecting its pristine high alpine environment and has also implemented a variety of green practices.

“What does not go unnoticed at LVSSR is how much our community of skiers and boarders value the steps we take with respect to our green initiative,” says Kevin Stickelman, LVSSR’s president and general manager. “Our city office utilizes Renewable Choice Energy, which reduces carbon-emissions by 29,491 pounds a year. We also provide shuttle transportation for guests and employees, to name just a few. This event is a chance to celebrate the ideals we share with our community, and to get excited for next season.”
