THANK YOU to all who joined TRF for the 12th Annual BodeFest Ski Challenge at Cannon Mountain

 Turtle Ridge Foundation (TRF), established by Olympic Medalist and four-time World Cup Skiing Champion Bode Miller, his family and Cannon Mountain, hosted the 12th Annual BodeFest at Cannon Mountain Ski Area on March 25, 2017. 100% of the event registration fees and auction proceeds will benefit TRF,  supporting innovative and progressive adaptive and youth athletic opportunities in our communities. BodeFest registrations, auctions and corporate sponsorships have brought in nearly $40,000!

Over 300 BodeFest participants spent the special spring day skiing with Bode where he orchestrated the kids into a the iconic "snake" for runs on Gary's and took multiple runs and lift rids with the excited young skiers. The race began at 10:30am with Bode running first to set the pace with a smoking fast time of 47.79, which -surprising to all - did not stand up to the fired up BodeFest crowd! Bode promised to come back next year and stay at the top of leader board!

During the exclusive VIP BodeFest BBQ lunch, Bode made time for all participants to have the opportunity to visit with him and get their picture with him and take home a keepsake autograph. While waiting for the 300+ racers to finish, Bode hung around the Peabody Base Lodge signing special auction items for the BodeFest Auction, visiting with fans, friends and family. 

BodeFest Ski Challenge wrapped up with Bode thanking the sponsors, participants and volunteers at the awards ceremony and live auction. Bode had awards and prized for the top 3 in Men's, Women's, Girl's, Boy's and Adaptive Athlete categories, congratulations to all the winners!

Proceeds from the BodeFest Ski Challenge fundraiser will allow TRF to continue to build our cutting edge TRF MonoSki and award them to deserving individuals and adaptive programs
