We are happy to announce that we will be donating $1,000 per our 5% back program to Coombs Outdoors. In addition, we will hold an online silent auction for a pair of our Lupine skis. 100% of the winning bid will go directly to Coombs Outdoors. The auction will conclude at midnight on Friday, July 17th. Please send your bid to: firstname.lastname@example.org or to our direct message on Instagram or Facebook. Buyer chooses length and and width and the skis will come with a custom engraving commemorating their purpose. These gifts will be made through the Old Bill's Fundraiser so that they qualify for a partial matching gift from the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.

An old idiom suggests that if you want to change the world, the best place to start is at home. Here in Teton Valley we have a Hispanic and Latino community that makes up around a third of our population - we don't see that same diversity on the ski hill and would like to help support inclusion in skiing. We feel that we can join a national conversation about racial equality and fair treatment by continuing our support of Coombs Outdoors whose vision is: "A world in which all kids are able to reap the benefits of the great outdoors, regardless of socio-economic, racial or cultural barriers."
Bid high for this great cause! We will start the bidding at $450. MSRP on the Lupines is $749 and this pair will come with a custom engraved reminder about the benefit.
