I'm Too Sexy for My…

I'm Too Sexy for My…

[ October 1, 2009 - 7:31pm ]
CAIC fundraiser
Despite the abundance of tan Carhartts and green softshells, the night got surprisingly colorful last night at a fundraiser for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. Free skis, a fashion show, and funky chicken suits helped tip the scale towards absurdity.

A ten dollar admission bought unlimited beer, ski clinics, catwalk entertainment, and a raffle ticket for ski equipment. All proceeds were donated to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center and Friends of Berthoud Pass.

I didn’t drink a twelve pack of beer and I am all set on skis, but I did get to see how serious male models are about long underwear. I am now aware of chicken suits and racy, red lingerie as staples of winter clothing. Although I thought I didn’t need any gear, I was disappointed when the winner of the beacon proclaimed that she didn’t “even know how to use this thing” and the winner of the K2 Darksides held them like a smelly baby diaper.

The list of prizes included skis from Voile, Black Diamond, and K2, BCA Tracker Beacon, Voile Shovel & Probe, Cloudveil Serendipity Jacket, Mammut Ski Packs, Mammut Long Underwear, Osprey Kode 22 Ski Pack, Petzl Headlamps, A-Basin lift tickets, and Loveland lift tickets.

Overall, it was a great introduction to Colorado ski culture.  Rowdy, but sensible, I feel confident that anyone from my Grandmother to Rachel Burks would have found it to be a quality event.  —Molly Baker
