Supporting the @blackorganizingproject, several skiers and riders have offered up some epic gear for auction with all proceeds going to the community based organization and their crucial work.
Thanks to longtime sponsor @praxisskis for donating a brand new pair of GPO’s, my personal favorite go-to all-around ski, and partner @flylowgear for their package of a brand new 2021 Kane jacket along with a couple of sweet hats, a headband, and pair of gloves.
Here is the link for the Praxis Skis and Flylow Kit: https://www.32auctions.com/organizations/65511/auctions/82849/auction_items/2305600, which holds a retail value of $1467 with a starting bid of only $550!
And here is the link for the whole auction: https://www.32auctions.com/shredracism with some more great equipment from local heroes Jeremy Jones, Cody Townsend, and more.
