While waiting for the snow to fall, past and present presidents of the Whitewater Ski Team delivered a cheque for $1,075 to the Whitewater Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundaries Society.

The two groups share the proceeds from the Rockstar Parking Raffle. Tickets for this year’s Rockstar Parking spot are available at the Whitewater office and, with all this snow flying, tickets will be available at the lodge very soon.
