Blogmeister's note: We admit that over the last couple of years we have offered some gentle criticism of the Powderville Perps (greedy developers), but we also admit that there are some good and well intentioned people employed at Powder Mountain. That said, we are passing on an important message regarding a benefit for the family of Brett Earl. This is a worthy cause to help a great family, and we urge you to dig deep to help out the Earl's.
A ski benefit will be held at Powder Mountain on Friday, April 24 for the family of Brett S. Earl. Earl, a resident of Eden, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on April 11, 2009 at the age of 39. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Earl family – Darnelle, Riley, Raj, Taj and India.
Powder Mountain will open Sundown Lift and Lodge from 12 noon – 8pm on Friday, April 24. The fun of skiing and sledding in springtime conditions will be enhanced by live music, a silent auction and a barbeque. Plus, a snowcat will escort non-skiers on scenic tours of Lightning Ridge. A minimum donation of $15 per person will provide participants with either a Sundown lift pass or one ride on the Lightning Ridge snowcat. You can purchase passes or make a donation on line at www.PowderMountain.com Passes will also be sold at Sundown Lodge on the day of the event.
