The 50+ Winter Games is an annual fundraiser for the Summit Senior Center. The 2022 50+ Winter Games were not held this year. In lieu of the 50+ Winter Games, Summit Seniors hosted 2 events, an Alpine event on February 14 and a Nordic event on February 15, which featured a reduced number of games/competitions that are held in the usual 50+ Winter Games. Both events were free this year and were for athletes who are 50-years-old and older.
The Alpine event on Monday, February 14, featured a Giant Slalom Race on the mountain at the Keystone Ski Resort.
The second event was a relaxed, fun morning of Nordic inspired events at the Frisco Nordic Center on Tuesday, February 15. There were NO timed or race course events this year; all events were run as fun group activities. Events included a snowball toss, biathlon, 4k group classic ski, 4k group skate ski, 2.5k group snowshoe, and free lunch. Summit Seniors are grateful to the Town of Frisco for their in-kind grant that allowed us to use the Frisco Nordic Center facility and for promoting this event on their website.
The 40th 50+ Winter games was held February 9, 10, & 11, 2020 and over $13,000 was raised to support Summit Seniors and our support of Summit County senior citizens through our grants.
