Schweitzer Snow Ghost Chairs to Lift Up Local Non-Profits

Out There Outdoors

With the planned Snow Ghost chairlift replacement project scheduled to start this summer, Schweitzer Mountain Resort has decided that the best thing to do with the old double-seat chairs is to lift up local charities.

“We have had a lot of people interested in having a part of Schweitzer’s history for themselves, and we see this as a great opportunity for our local non-profits to benefit from this well-loved legend,” says Schweitzer’s Family and Activities Director, Dani Demmons. 

Here’s how the fundraiser works: “Each chair has a donation amount of $2,000 attached to it. When a person or an organization decides to acquire a chair, they will write a check directly to a pre-approved local 501(c)(3) organization,” says Demmons. “Then, Schweitzer gifts the chair to the donor and they can do as they wish with the chair.”

Schweitzer has worked with a variety of non-profits in the area over the years, donating more than $200,000 in cash and in-kind product each year to local causes, and the resort is excited at the potential for the “Chairs for Charity” effort to raise approximately $280,000 that will go back into the community. 

Chair donations will be accepted online starting April 1, 2019 with chairs available for pick-up during the summer of 2019. For more specific details about the “Chairs for Charity” program and Schweitzer’s donation criteria, please visit Schweitzer.com/donation-requests. (OTO)
