Annual Auction

October 6, 2018: The Sounds of Silence

We're taking the big plunge! When thinking about what would most improve the Arctic Valley experience, one thing came to everyone's mind: make the T-bar quiet! We're working with Superior Tramway on a refurbishment project for summer 2019 to make the T-bar as quiet (or quieter!) than Chair 2. Removing the roar of the open gear drive on this lift will make Arctic Valley a much more peaceful, pleasant experience. We hope you're as excited about this project as we are!

This will be a $75,000-100,000 project, and we're using the Auction as our first fundraiser to work towards that goal. We hope you'll join us in making this huge improvement to Arctic Valley!

Dinner will be served at 7pm, after the last silent auction table has closed. Peppercini's will be catering dinner this year - this year they've prepared a custom traditional menu for us! We'll have a selection of fine local beers, and wine available with dinner.
