High Fives Foundation Shred it, Don’t Spread it at FAT Ski 2021

What is a Hybrid Event?

“A hybrid event allows people to engage virtually without losing a sense of community.” *A High Fives’ hybrid event adheres to state and resort covid-19 guidelines.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s Ski-a-thon will be hybrid with limited in-person capacity in order to keep participants safe and comply with CDC health and safety guidelines. The details are simple, raise funds for the mission of the High Fives Foundation prior to Feb 28th, and feel good about getting awesome swag! The Foundation will continue to monitor and assess the safety of the event organization as the ski season progresses.

Details for all participants:

Registration → The event will be capped to the first 100 people to register. Please register at www.fatski.highfivesfoundation.org. Registration must be completed online, prior to Feb 28th.
