Snowbird, Utah Oct. 14, 2004 — October brings two weekends of free Tram rides at Snowbird with a donation to the Utah Food Bank. Snowbird Customer Appreciation Days will take place Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 16-17, and Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 23-24.
One can of food equals one free Tram ride during Customer Appreciation Days. In lieu of food, a $2 donation may be made for a Tram ride. All food donations benefit the Utah Food Bank and monetary donations benefit the Wasatch Adaptive Sports program.
The Tram will be open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 16-17 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 23-24. Bring food and donations to the front entrance of the Snowbird Center, accessed by Snowbird Entry 2.
Local bands including The Neighbors, Mr. Whoopie and FastBack will play on the Snowbird Center Plaza Deck from 1-4 p.m. during Customer Appreciation Days.
Snowbird's newest attractions, the ZipRider, Alpine Slide and Bungy Trampoline, will also be open during Customer Appreciation Days, with the same operating hours as the Tram. Tickets for the ZipRider, Alpine Slide and Bungy Trampoline are separate from the Utah Food Bank food-raiser.
Snowbird is scheduled to open for the 2004-05 season Nov. 20. For more information, call the Snowbird Events Hotline at (801) 933-2110 or go to www.snowbird.com.
