Annual Auction

October 9-16, 2021: Sweet Corduory

 

As we have done for the past 16 years, we are heralding the onset of winter with our Annual Fall Benefit Auction. Over the past two seasons, we have been able to continue and enhance our operations and provide important outdoor recreational opportunities to our community. A fundamental improvement we have made is the ability to groom our slopes. Not only does grooming provide terrain that benefits a wider range of skiing and riding abilities, it is critical to the success of our youth racing and free-ride programs. Grooming is also essential in maintaining our family-friendly tubing park. Unfortunately, our existing snow-cats are worn out and require replacement. This year’s auction will raise funds towards the purchase of 2 replacement snow-cat groomers. We have both snow-cats identified and under contract, ready to be shipped to Arctic Valley before the snow starts to fly! These groomers will allow us to continue to expand our youth programs as well as providing consistent conditions for riders of all abilities. Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 towards the purchase of our new snow-cats.

Auction Format

This year’s auction will feature an online silent auction during the week of October 9th to the 16th culminating with a special silent auction section the evening of October 16th. Online auction items will be posted during the week and bidders will be able to bid for items via a browser or mobile app. We have three sections ending on consecutive evenings (see schedule below), so be sure to monitor your bids or use the automatic notification option in your private auction account.

Update: We will not be holding a live auction event this year, though we hope to continue this tradition next year!  We have some amazing auction items and remember you can bid from anywhere at any time using our mobile auction app!
