GEORGETOWN, CO – Thirty-seven fifth graders from Laredo Elementary in Aurora, Colorado, hit the slopes at Loveland Ski Area on Tuesday, December 5, thanks to a partnership between the ski area and the Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project.
Founded and led by Chris Anthony, a Colorado native and Snow Sports Hall of Fame inductee, the Project’s mission is to enhance quality of life by introducing youth to educational enrichment opportunities. In addition to placing mentors in classrooms, connecting students to experiential opportunities beyond the classroom, offering financial support, and creating educational tools that enhance the overall classroom experience, the 501(c)(3) foundation brings students like the lucky fifth graders of Laredo Elementary to the mountains.
Since they teamed up in 2018, Loveland Ski Area and the Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project have made it possible for nearly 700 elementary students to experience skiing on the snow, many of them for the first time. The Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project has multiple trips planned at Loveland Ski Area each month of the 2023–24 season.
