SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS TO PROMOTE COMMUNITY, HEALTH AND AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE.
Jackson Ski Touring Foundation is a nonprofit organization and is tax exempt under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Jackson Ski Touring Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, and your donation is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
You clip into your skis, look across the winter scene, scan the beautifully groomed trails and push off. You don’t usually give much thought to how this all happens. We’d like to ask you to take a minute to consider exactly how it does all happen and how you can help.
The Foundation’s daily needs for payroll, bridges and trail maintenance, utilities, the warm lodge, the plowed parking lots, fuel for grooming and equipment maintenance, right down to the trail signs and the logs on the ski lodge fire all take funds to be able to make happen. While most of these costs are pretty much taken care of by the cash flow generated from seasonal and daily trail passes, operations are becoming very costly and we need your help! Your support and investment will go directly into our operating fund and will work to ensure that we can keep prices low and continue to offer free skiing for all children under the age of 10, training opportunities for athletes, other free programs, enabling us to continue to maintain the quality and trails you have come to love.
Before you clip into your skis and hit the trail add a donation into your day’s activities…every dollar helps!
Please show your love of Jackson XC by donating today!
TRAIL AND CAPITAL FUND
Our trails and capital fund is the other most important aspect of our fundraising efforts. You have come to love JSTF because of our extensive trail system that is groomed to perfection daily. Though we already have incredible trails, they sometimes need to be relocated due to resource issues, bridges age and weaken, Pisten Bullys get tired and need to be replaced and lands need to be protected through executing stewardship plans and conservation easements. The useful life of our equipment and bridges is predictable, cyclical, and replacement can and is being planned in a regular sequence. Each is a capital expense which even in the best of seasons, sales of daily and seasonal passes couldn’t come close to funding. It’s a fact of life — money makes capital planning work. Not visible, is the work of Jackson Ski Touring’s board of directors in making sure the Foundation has all the equipment the staff needs to accomplish this task — not only this year, but for years to come. Providing the capital equipment JSTF needs to make your skiing great depends on your willingness to invest in JSTF beyond your trail pass or yearly membership. Every dollar you give is a real investment in your enjoyment of all the best JSTF has to offer.
