Take a shot at parking’s holy grail at Whitewater

All proceeds go to the Whitewater Ski Team and the Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundaries program

Here is one more reason to buy your Whitewater season pass — only season pass holders are eligible to win the highly coveted, thoroughly luxurious, ridiculously convenient, front row Rock Star Parking which is being raffled again this year by the Whitewater Ski Team.

This year you can buy your raffle ticket online or in person when you purchase your season pass. With only 1,000 tickets printed, it’s easy to imagine that you can park like a rock star and be the envy of every powder hound this side of the Pecos! Just ask Miles Parker, last year’s winner and father of three who cruised into his personally reserved parking spot whenever he chose.

“I was king!” he said. “That parking spot was reserved for me each and every day until 12:30. I was guaranteed first run on a pow day, or I could sip my coffee in bed and wait for the sun to hit the lodge. You can’t put a price on that kind of fame and rock star parking fortune.”

“As far as raffle prizes go, this one is truly epic,” said Tracy Punchard, president-elect of the Whitewater Ski Team.

“We hope every pass holder will purchase tickets because the proceeds provide essential support to the groups who ensure our young people are ripping it up safely on the mountain.”

All proceeds go to the Whitewater Ski Team and the Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundaries program.

Tickets are $10 and are on sale now with the purchase of your ski pass. Tickets will also be available at the ski swap on November 4 and at the lodge once the ski season starts.

Just say yes. It could make you snow famous.
