While our sport has taken much from black culture we have too often given nothing back. That needs to change, and we have been inspired to follow the lead of others to raise money for racial justice and opportunity in our country and in our community.

We recognize that there is much to be done to make skiing inclusive, as there is much to be done to provide equal rights and opportunities to all. Our sport, and most other outdoor sports aren’t accessible to everyone and while income barriers and geography play a role, so does an industry that hasn’t taken enough steps to promote and support inclusivity.

It’s important for us all to nurture an outdoor sport culture, and an approach to community in general that makes space for all people, no matter their race, gender, income, or any other defining identity - we think that the groups we have chosen to support through this initiative represent this.

Level 1 is not a large company and we don’t have the means to make a sizable financial contribution on our own, but we do have the support of so many good people and brands in this community that are willing to help make a difference.

This fundraiser is for us a first step towards putting our time, energy, and resources to work beyond making a statement online. We at Level 1 commit to working towards equality and inclusivity beyond this fundraiser, beyond these few weeks, and beyond this moment.

We all have a role to play in making this world a more fair, just, and inclusive place, and we hope that giving you a chance to win some awesome stuff will make it easy for you to pitch in.

Thank you to all of the people and brands supporting this raffle, without their generosity this would not be possible.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be split equally and donated to the following Non-Profit Organizations:

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation

NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.

How it works:

You can purchase as many tickets as you'd like from now through 11:59pm MST Sunday, June 28th. For each ticket purchased your name will be thrown in the virtual hat and each ticket will represent a single chance to win- the more tickets you purchase, the more chances you have to win, and you can win more than once. At the end of the two-week fundraising period the names of 99 winners will be randomly drawn and announced. We'll do our best to accommodate size/model/color requests when possible, but what you win is what you get and we cannot provide exchanges, returns, or cash value of any prizes won. Prizes will be delivered either by Level 1 or the donating brand to the email or physical address provided during the checkout process for ticket orders. Shipping will be covered, but any taxes, duties, and/or other fees will be the sole responsibility of the prize winners. Level 1 and contributing brands reserve the right to make adjustments to the prizes if necessary.
