Loveland Ski Area to host ninth annual Corn Harvest Saturday

Daily News staff report

LOVELAND – As the 2009-2010 season comes to an end, it is once again time for skiers and riders to celebrate spring and safety.

This Saturday, Loveland Ski Area will host the ninth annual Corn Harvest Benefit Ski Party for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC).

The CAIC promotes safety in Colorado’s backcountry by reducing the impact of avalanches on recreation, industry and transportation in the state through a program of forecasting and education.

“The Corn Harvest is one of the most popular events of the season,” said John Sellers, Loveland marketing director. “You can enjoy some spring corn on the Ridge and give back to the guys that are looking out for you in the backcountry.”

During the past five years, the Corn Harvest has raised almost $25,000 for the CAIC.

Anyone who would like to attend this year’s event can purchase an event ticket for $60 at Loveland Ski Area on April 24. The package includes a lift ticket, barbecue lunch from Great Range Bison, beer from New Belgium Brewing, soft drinks from Pepsi, live music and a raffle with prizes from Bent Gate Mountaineering, Flylow and more.

For those with a season pass, the cost is $30.

“The people who come out for the event really make it fun. There are always a lot of smiles and Hawaiian shirts making laps on Chair 9 and dancing to the live music on the patio. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and give a little bit back to the guys that provide such a valuable resource for all skiers and snowboarders – not just backcountry enthusiasts.”
