    Who Here NEEDS To Ski Free This Winter?

    I know we would alike to ski free, especially the few non dentist around here. That said, I am looking for some help from the collective to help determine who around here is in need of assistance due to life circumstances, and is deserving to ski for free despite these challenges. If you, or a maggot you know, is facing hardship and would otherwise not be able to ski this winter, then I have a pass for you. Tell us your story and what makes you a worthy recipient. And for all of us who are fortunate enough to have spent money already to secure our shaky future ski season, who do you want to see receive a pass? These ski passes are good for unlimited skiing at most resorts connected with the al terra group and have about twelve days of blackout. I can't share the details on how these passes (oh yeah, looks like there are two) were secured, but I want to extend my thanks out to all those maggots who reached out and shared their information even though they saw no increase in discount.

    Every year I read on the forum stories of maggots who have faced the struggle. Homes have been lost, jobs have been lost, tragedy has hit families. This year a bunch of maggots reached out and joined our group just so that one or two of you could ski for free. It shows how a bunch of small efforts can have a big effect. How cool is that?

    So who here needs little help this winter getting on the snow? Don't be shy. It looks like I will have about 10 days (again, details are unclear) to tell the overload who is getting awarded these opportunities to shred. If we get a bunch of submissions, I will create a poll to have the collective make the call.

    I vote for Hutash. The dood lost his house in a fire, and has helped many maggots out with their canine issues. He is the gift that keeps on giving.

    +100 for Hutash. He's a solid fucking dude.

    also idk if this is a thread hijack or what but i would def chip in some of my meager funds to help get a mag a pass/trip to utah/whatever the collective feels is warranted.

    MTNGIRL sure is needy...but she doesn't deserve shit.

    I don't know if either of these guys needs it, but I'd throw out:

    Blackalps - man that guy got eff'd up on his bike. No doubt he struggled with recovery.

    and/or

    Smmokan - that guys contributes to the mtb scene offering helpful hints, rides, and reviews here and on other sites. I think COVID hit his tour business pretty hard.

    If I'm wrong or over-stepping, I apologize....but there's appx 1,283, 647 mags who are more deserving than mtngrl.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    Hutash, while a good dude, does not need charity of a ski pass.

    I vote donating to the Skiing in Jackson family, if said passes work for them.

    I agree with those who say hutash, while an awesome mag, doesn't need the free ski pass, and agree with those who reject mtngirl as an option (she's received more charity from this board than just about anyone, and still remains remarkably lacking in empathy).

    Skiing in jackson family might be a very good call, if this helps them. Smmokan is a good dude, if he is struggling at all then he's a good option.

    Thanks for doing this Ottime. I'd suggest you invite suggestions and requests via PM. People who are hard up for cash may not want to make it public.

    Also a good idea. I think there is such a thread, but it could use rejuvenation.

    This.

    If passes are not of use to the family, would it be possible to auction off the passes and send them the proceeds?
