On Saturday March 4, join us at Beech Mountain Ski Resort for a fun day of skiing, snowboarding, contests and more to raise awareness and conquer colon cancer!

Not a skier or snowboarder? No problem... Register to be a fundraiser to still be a part of a great event and win cool prizes!

Registration is required but is free.

You must have a valid lift ticket to participate. Lift tickets can be purchased when you register online or when you arrive at the slope on event day.

**If you plan buy a lift ticket  on the event morning you must also be registered here for the event**

Adult: $52 discounted lift ticket
Junior: $48 discounted lift ticket
Watauga County or Avery County Schools student or teacher: $30 discounted lift ticket

Beech Mountain is generously donating the cost of the lift ticket to the Colon Cancer Coalition.


There are two ways to fundraise:

  2. A simple donation means that a donor gives a flat rate donation regardless of how many runs a participant does.
  4. Pledge per ski run means that a donor pledges a dollar amount for every run you complete at the Runs for Buns event on 3/12.  
  5. **If you pledge $1/run and your participant does 25 runs that is $25 you will be invoiced for after the event**
In addition to the skiing, there will be an online auction happening.    The auction will be open from March 6th - March 12th.  
Bid high and bid often!
