We connect ski areas with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to ensure the warmth and comfort of our global neighbors. NGO warehouses will begin accepting donations for the 2021/2022 season in October and will begin distributing garments in January. We've reached 313,800, and can't wait to keep going!
