AWOL at Alpental on 3/13
« on: 02/28/17, 05:41 PM »

Need a break from the daily grind? Sick of battling crowds on the mountain?

Go AWOL at Alpental with the Northwest Avalanche Center and evo for a private day of skiing and riding on Monday, March 13th. Start your week off right by calling in sick or just slipping quietly away from your desk to spend the day with a few hundred other NWAC supporters riding at Alpental. Weíve teamed up with evo to bring you the best of next seasonís demos, raffles, food, Fremont beer, and zero lift lines.

Bump for updates... still some tickets available, but we're capping it at 300 regular tickets instead of the normal couple thousand.

On top of the limited crowd, we'll have demos and prizes from brands including Faction Skis, Ortovox, Salomon Ski and Snowboard, Nordica, Line Skis, Full Tilt Boots, Atomic, Jones, YES, Now, K2 Skis, Lib Tech, GNU, Oakley, Burton, anon, Volkl, Marker, Armada Skis, Giro, Nitro, CAPiTA, and Union. You'll have a chance to try next year's gear before it's available.

I'm just saying... most folks forget that Alpental does spin on holiday Mondays, much to my benefit as I now have all of those off from work

If you're going to give $150 to NWAC, this is a pretty great way to do it. The only question I have is does purchasing the ticket count as a donation, which could be matched and therefore doubled by my employer?

Generally, tickets arenít covered by matching gift programs and you are receiving a good/service.

Correct as mentioned above...

3/10 Update: Due to a significantly worsening forecast for warmth and rain for this weekend and Monday we have decided to postpone AWOL at Alpental to April 17th. A takeaway from our travels in the backcountry is recognizing when conditions are unfavorable and taking steps to dial back plans. Skiing/riding in this amount of rain (even without lines) is not our idea of favorable.

We have secured a backup date with Alpental for Monday, April 17th. Everything we had planned for ski and snowboard demos for next year, BBQ, beers, raffles, and more will still be offered on that new date.

Apologies for any inconvenience around the scheduling. Any tickets purchased with be transferable to the new date (or refunded). We're disappointed that the all-time good weather of the last two weeks has switched over so significantly, but we hope that you will be able to join us at the new date.

If you didn't get tickets and want to reserve a spot now, the ticket link is updated and live here: http://awolatalpental.bpt.me/

GC - Amounts over fair market value should be eligible, correct? After talking with NWAC, I believe $80 is the FMV for the actual services. Correct me if I'm wrong on how this works.
