K2 Bumps Challenge & Paint for Peaks

Taos Ski Valley is once again proud to host B4BC's Shred the Love. The 8th annual celebration will include a full day of exciting fundraising activities to benefit Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) and the Anita Salas Memorial Fund. Skiers, snowboarders, artists, families, visitors and locals are invited to join in support of this important cause that affects so many of us. Shred the Love Taos Ski Valley consists of two main events:

Bumps Challenge – a fun and challenging marathon down the infamous Al’s Run – one of Taos Ski Valley’s most famous and popular mogul runs on the front face of the mountain. This event promotes an active lifestyle while raising awareness and funds for B4BC’s education and support programs. Skiers and boarders are invited to come out and participate in teams of two, or tackle the feat individually. ATHLETES MUST RAISE A MINIMUM OF $100 TO PARTICIPATE.

Paint For Peaks Art + Silent Auction - hosted in the Martini Tree, Taos Ski Valley will once again host the Paint for Peaks: Snowboard Art + Silent Auction featuring custom, one-of-a-kind artwork created on snowboards, skateboard decks, helmets and more!

Over the last 11 years Shred the Love at Taos Ski Valley has raised more than $175,000 for B4BC's education, prevention and survivorship programs and the Anita Salas Memorial Fund. Taos Ski Valley has also been home to many of B4BC's Winter Chasing Sunshine Young Breast Cancer Retreats where young local & regional women are selected to join us for a wellness weekend of skiing,  snowboarding, yoga and healing.
