Ride for Breast Cancer Research at Seymour

Comments 6 by Rebecca Bollwitt

my gearToday I’ll be strapping on my snowboard for the first time in two years and I simply can’t wait.

I learned to ride about 12 years ago at my local mountain of choice – Seymour. This was mostly because it was the quickest to get to from Surrey, it was the cheapest, and had the best runs for beginners. It’s still my ‘local’ of choice so I’m particularly pleased to share the following information about “Guys Night Out”.

Keira first wrote about G.N.O. a few days ago but it wasn’t until today that I actually looked into it a bit further.

The Event
Head to Mt Seymour every Monday evening from January 7th to March 24th for Guys Night Out – Girls Ride FREE. A shared evening of skiing, snowboarding, hanging with your friends, and making new ones.

The Details

* Women must pick up a Girls Ride FREE voucher from one of our retail partners. Refer to the list below.
* Present the voucher at Guest Services any Monday after 6:00pm from January 7th to March 24th to redeem it for a FREE lift ticket.
* Please remember to make a donation to fund Breast Cancer Research.
* Après in the Elevation lounge with specials, ski and snowboard films, and prizes provided by the event sponsors.

The Charity
Supporting Breast Cancer research through Boarding for Breast Cancer and the BC Cancer Foundation.

It was revealed yesterday on the Strombo Show that local rock goddess Bif Naked has been diagnosed with breast cancer. As a dedicated participant of the Run for the Cure, and knowing women who have struggled and survived, I’m always game for something that supports cancer research.

Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a non-profit, youth-focused education, awareness, and fundraising foundation. Our mission is to increase awareness about breast cancer, the importance of early detection and the value of an active lifestyle. [B4BC]

So there you have it, you can head to the best in local skiing/boarding and support a great cause while you’re at it. For more information about Mount Seymour visit their website, and stay tuned for a recap and plenty of photos from our girls night out (for a cause) at the mountain.

Update: Everything you’ll want to know about hitting ANY of the local North Shore mountains can be found in Paul’s hugely informative blog post.

    I read the book of Tina Basich “Pretty good for a girl”, in which she explains the concept of b4bc.
    I think it is a wonderfull organisation!

    I’m a snowboarder myself and I work in the industry and it’s a pitty that there are not more initatives like that…
    If I would be around Vancouver, I would definitely participate… To bad I live in Belgium, the country with no mountains…

    Have fun and enjoy your ride!!

    What a brilliant event for a great cause. It would be great if they did a similar event in the UK (however it would have to be on our dryslopes!)
