  • Lil Stomper Dash: This 'course' takes place right in front of center stage where everyone can watch as the kids complete a loop in snowshoes.

 

How do I pick up my event packet?
There are three options for event packet pick-up.

  1. You can stop by the Komen Colorado office between Wednesday, Feb. 27 - Friday, Feb. 28. We are located at 50 S. Steele Street, Ste. 101, Denver, CO 80209. NOTE: We will only be in the office until 4 p.m. on February 28.
  2. You can pick-up your event packet at the Pink Party, taking place on Friday, March 1 at the Frisco Community & Senior Center, 83 Nancy's Place, Frisco, CO 80443 between 5-8 p.m.
  3. Event morning in the Day Lodge located next to the Frisco Nordic Center between 7:30-8:45 a.m.

 

How do I form a team?
To be considered an official team, we recommend five or more registered members by the morning of the event. You can form a team or join a team online when you register.

Is my registration fee tax-deductible?
No, your registration fee is not considered tax-deductible. However, any amount that you choose to donate above the registration fee is tax-deductible.

Are snowshoes required?
The trails at the Frisco Nordic Center are designed for skiing or snowshoeing, so snowshoes are required during this event. Also, snowshoeing burns a lot more calories than just plain old walking, giving you every opportunity to burn off that pancake breakfast.

Do I need to bring my own snowshoes?
Yes, we recommend bringing your own snowshoes to the event. If you are not able to bring your own and are concerned about the demos running out, arrive at the Demo Tent early or rent or borrow some from a friend! All demo snowshoes are first-come, first-serve basis. Don't forget, you'll need your bib number to borrow a pair of demo snowshoes, so make sure that you've checked-in first!

Where can I rent snowshoes?
Please view our list of rental spots located along the front range.

Is this a race?
No. This is not a race, it is a fundraising event. If you want to keep track of the time it takes you to complete the course, you're more than welcome to on the self-timed 3K course. Otherwise, no times will be tracked.

What should I wear?
Clothing for snowshoeing is very similar to the clothing you would use to go on a winter hike.

  • Hat and gloves
  • Waterproof hiking boots or trail runners
  • Wool or synthetic socks - not cotton
  • Layers - a non-cotton base layer, an insulating layer, and a waterproof shell
  • Snowshoes

 

What are the courses like?

  • Terrain: We do our best to design the courses relatively mellow to be appropriate for beginners. The awesome folks at the Frisco Nordic Center do a great job grooming the trails for us ahead of time. If you see any, make sure to give them a high five!
  • Course markings: The courses are marked with flags and there will be volunteers positioned at key split-off points to help ensure everyone finds their way.
  • Course map: In most cases, we don't know what snow and weather conditions will be like until just before the event. We aren't able to set the course until 1-2 days before the event, making it too tight of a time frame to put together a specific course outline. We strive to mark the course with plenty of flags and post volunteers at key turn-off points!

How can I volunteer for this event?

Are pets allowed at the event?
Although we love our furry friends, the Frisco Nordic Center is a pet-free zone. Please leave them warm and cozy at home!

Am I required to fundraise?
Participants are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above their entry fee. Just imagine the impact! If every Snowshoe participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $150,000 for screening, treatment and education programs in Colorado.

Can I win prizes?
Yes! We will be awarding recognition items to our top three fundraisers on stage during the closing ceremony.

Is there a deadline for donations?

Yes, there are three very important deadlines to remember.

  • Monday, February 25 at 5 p.m.: All OFFLINE donations (cash and checks) must be turned into Komen Colorado office to be eligible for prizes on event day.
  • Friday, March 1 at 11:59 p.m.: All online fundraising must be completed to be eligible for prizes on event day.
  • Sunday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m.: All online and offline (cash and checks) fundraising must be completed to be attributed to Snowshoe for the Cure. Any donations collected after that will be considered general donations.

Where can I send my donations?
You can mail checks to: Susan G. Komen Colorado 50 S. Steele Street, Ste. 100, Denver, CO. 80209. If you are donating to a specific individual or team, please include that information on your check. Or you can donate online.
