Colorado Mountain Express donates van to Keystone Science School

As part of Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise program, Colorado Mountain Express is partnering with the Keystone Science School by donating a 15-passenger Ford E350 van to the school.

The school runs off-site educational programs to teach scientific principles and leadership skills to young people, teachers and community members through engaging hands-on field experiences.

“We are so grateful for CME’s donation of a van through Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise,” said Ellen Reid, the school’s executive director. “This new van will enable us to transport even more students to the countless beautiful places in and around Summit County, positively impacting local youth as well as students across the state and country.”

“Every year, CME sells some of its vehicles and buys new ones to keep the fleet ‘fresh,’” said Robert C. Tschupp, vice president and general manager of Colorado Mountain Express. “A few years ago we decided it would be great to donate one every year.”

CME and Vail Resorts have donated a van each year for the past three years to a deserving nonprofit organization in Summit or Eagle counties.
