Chris Ruby Cup Fundraiser Race

Lee Canyon hosts the second annual Chris Ruby Cup on Saturday, Jan. 14. The race will benefit the Nevada Donor Network, a local non-profit organization responsible for coordinating, recovering and allocating lifesaving organs and healing tissues for transplant for Nevada patients. The fundraiser is in memory of Chris Ruby, a local snowboarder and organ donor who lost his life in 2014. The race is open to skiers and snowboarders of all levels and will be held from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Participants can register at the event; registration is $20, and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Nevada Donor Network. Lee Canyon will cover registration for organ donors as well as entrants who sign up for organ donation with Nevada Donor Network. (The $20 event registration does not include lift tickets. Single day lift tickets are $69 in person and $59 if guests purchase in advance online. )

First place prize is a 2017-18 All Access Season Pass. Entrants are invited to complete in multiple runs; the entrant with the most runs will receive a 2017-18 Battle Born Season Pass.
