After raising over $59,000 in the past two years to help fight breast cancer, Taos Ski Valley and K2 are once again proud to host Shred the Love taking place on Saturday, February 25, 2018. The Shred the Love celebrations will include a full day of unique and exciting fundraising activities to benefit Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) and the Anita Salas Memorial Fund. Skiers, riders, artists, families, visitors and locals are invited to join in support of this important cause that affects so many of us. 

Shred the Love at Taos Ski Valley consists of three main events:

 

  • 6th Annual K2 Bumps — a fun and challenging marathon down the infamous Al’s Run – one of Taos Ski Valley’s most famous and popular mogul runs on the front face of the mountain. This event promotes an active lifestyle while raising awareness and funds for B4BC’s education and support programs. Skiers and riders are invited to come out and participate in teams of two, or tackle the feat individually. ATHLETES MUST RAISE A MINIMUM OF $150 TO PARTICIPATE. REGISTER BY CLICKING ON THE GREEN "BECOME A FUNDRAISER" BUTTON ABOVE!

 

  • 8th Annual Paint for Peaks: Snowboard Art Auction — hosted in the Martini Tree Bar at the base of the mountain, Taos Ski Valley will once again host the Paint for Peaks: Snowboard Art Auction featuring custom, one-of-a-kind artwork created on snowboards produced by renowned local and regional artists. All proceeds from the art sale will go to B4BC and the Anita Salas Memorial Fund. K2 has once again donated the snowboards that will serve as the canvases for artists to create one-of-a-kind works of art for this year’s event.

 

  • Live Music — Over the last seven years the Breast Cancer Awareness Day at Taos Ski Valley has raised more than $149,000 for the cause! Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a non-profit, youth-focused education, awareness, and fundraising foundation whose mission is to increase awareness about breast cancer, the importance of early detection and the value of an active lifestyle. (The Taos Ski Valley event is part of the B4BC “Shred the Love” Fundraising Winter Series Campaign.) The Anita Salas Memorial Fund is a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance for breast cancer services in New Mexico.
