Every winter, Subaru of America celebrates the ski community by hosting an on-hill party called WinterFest. WinterFest is a one-of-a-kind concert and mountain lifestyle tour that stops at select resorts. WinterFest events feature live music, Subaru swag, free snacks and beverages, daily giveaways, gear demos, and sometimes even avalanche dog activities.
Thanks to Subaru’s 25-year partnership with NSP, Subaru generously donates $1 to NSP for every email opt-in they gather throughout the tour. These funds are used to benefit avalanche dog programs and scholarships all over, including Wasatch Backcountry Rescue (WBR) and Colorado Rapid Avalanche Deployment (C-RAD). These funds allow NSP to award dog team scholarships to selected applicants to attend these schools. Over the last 3 years, Subaru has raised over $30,000.
These schools teach handlers and dogs of all ages the tools they need to safely and successfully participate in search and rescue, specifically in avalanche terrain. To learn more about these programs, check out an interview with the National Ski Patrol’s two scholarship recipients for the C-RAD school here. We hope to see you at a Winterfest at a resort near you this winter.
