Diversity Day back at Pat’s – Boston Herald

While ski resorts across the country are working to increase their diversity, New England’s own Pat’s Peak Ski Area will hold its 21st annual “Diversity Day Goes POP” at Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 17 from 4 to 9 p.m.

Diversity Day, as Pat’s partners with Boston’s Youth Enrichment Services (YES) to bring young people who may not have had a chance before to the slopes, is announced as a national leader in snow sports diversity.

In all these years, the resort has held this annual event, as well as working with groups throughout the season to help open access to snow sports for communities that may not have it.

This year, part of the day’s celebration will include more than 130 YES-sponsored children skiing and snowboarding at Pats Peak in the afternoon and then attending the festivities early in the evening.

Diversity Day Goes POP is a fun evening to enjoy some time on the slopes and celebrate Martin Luther King’s work, spirit and vision. This winter’s event commemorates the importance of diversity, non-discrimination and freedom.

The “POP” is for Pay One Price, which means that the guest gets skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing, rental and lesson tips for one price.

Pat’s Peak is an easy drive north of Boston in Henniker, New Hampshire. With its best rental fleet, large and comfortable baselodge and top snow production system, it has had many social media shout-outs during this early season.

Their 21 years and counting dedication to diversity are, they say, part of who they are.

“Our dream for Diversity Day is to provide the atmosphere and a program that will encourage you to bring people who are skiing, snowboarding and tubing who may think this is a sport out of their reach,” he said. Kris Blomback, Pats Peak General Manager.
