Mineral Mountain Ziplines hosting Community Day fundraiser in Fairmont Hot Springs to support local search and rescue organization.
FAIRMONT HOT SPRINGS, BC, May 23, 2018 /CNW/ - Guests who go ziplining in Fairmont Hot Springs on Friday, June 1 will not only get to ride at a discounted price; they'll also be supporting an important local non-profit organization at the same time.
Brothers Jay and Todd Manton, co-owners of Mineral Mountain Ziplines, will be hosting the company's inaugural Community Day event, which will see 100 per cent of the day's profits donated to Columbia Valley Search and Rescue.
The Manton's sister company—Kokanee Mountain Zipline in Nelson—hosted a similar event that has raised upwards of $5,000 in the past.
"It's all based on how many people show up," says Jay Manton, noting that the guides also support the event by donating their time.
Mineral Mountain will be offering 50 per cent off the standard rates, which sit at $89 for adults and $79 for children 14 and under. Given that this year's Community Day falls on a professional development day for the local school district, Manton is confident there'll be a big draw.
"This would be a good chance for parents to reward them with a fun day out with the family" says Jay.
As avid outdoorsmen, both Jay and Todd appreciate the courageous work done by Columbia Valley Search and Rescue. This organization is comprised of volunteers, whose varied skill sets assist in a range of emergency response capabilities, including grounds search, swift-water rescue, rope rescue, and mountain rescue.
A typical ziplining tour at Mineral Mountain takes about two hours. Guests ease into the course with a short 135-foot line that's just 20 feet off the ground, and ziplines increase in length and height as they crisscross back and forth across Fairmont Creek. The tour culminates in a thrilling 1,500-foot long, 200-foot high line to the finish.
Tickets for the Community Day event are limited, so book soon by calling 1-844-888-6695.
