Squaw High Fives Retro Vibe with Mothership Classic

Go old-school for a worthy cause.
Publish date:

Dig out your 1980s onesie from the closet and take your straight skinny skis off your cabin wall for this weekend’s 3rd Annual Mothership Classic on Squaw’s legendary KT-22 lift.

Spend the the day lapping KT-22 for pledges to benefit the High Fives non-profit foundation, which helps athletes who have had life-altering injuries. Vintage and throwback gear is encouraged, if not (absolutely) required. 

Check out photos from previous years. 

The all-day event—9 am to 4 pm—is March 26, and is free. Registration starts at 8 am, at the Wildflour Baking Co., Olympic House. Head here for more info.
