The American Cancer Society is offering winter enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy their favorite sports while helping to raise funds to continue the search to find a cure for cancer with “Hope on the Slopes,” at Mt. Spokane on March 13.

Skiers and snowboarders make their day on the hill more meaningful by raising money for the American Cancer Society, while competing for vertical feet. Each participant and team will receive a personal Web page they can customize with their own messages and photos. Features of the site will include the ability to fundraise online and via e-mail, track fundraising progress, and honor loved ones touched by cancer.
