Gala on the Mountain 2019

Dear Ski Team Families,

We are excited for our 4th annual Gala on the Mountain on March 26th at Sundance Resort in the Redford Conference Center. Last year's event was a huge success! The money raised at last years Gala has allowed our foundation to provide scholarships, and equipment for the entire team to use for the 2018/2019 season.

This year’s Gala will be another amazing night! We will be announcing our second annual “Higher Level Human” award. Each year we give this award to a true role model in our community, someone who exemplifies the attributes we are trying to instill in our athletes. We cannot wait to announce this year’s winner!

We are also holding our SMSEF Video Contest again this year. Winners of this contest receive a partial scholarship for the 2019-2020 season. The top three winning videos will be announced and played during the gala.

We need your help to make this a successful night. Each family is expected to sell tickets to the Gala and gather a donation for the auction. We want to encourage families to go out into our community and ask businesses to donate an item for the event. Donation ideas include vacation rentals, ski gear, restaurant gift cards, gift baskets and excursions. Donations can be dropped off on March 16th at the team’s club house.

We are also in need of volunteers for our gala committee. If you are interested in being part of the planning committee please email

Thank you all for your support! None of this would be possible without you!
