LADIES NIGHT IS BACK @ MT SEYMOUR. HIT THE SLOPES TO SUPPORT SHRED FOR THE CAUSE “LOCALS EDITION”.
Every Monday night during the 2016 season, ladies can ski or snowboard at Mt Seymour for $10, with $5 from every lift ticket going to The Bloom Group. You can donate more to The Bloom Group if wish. Men are still welcome to come out and enjoy some evening shredding. Lift tickets for men from 6pm – 10pm are $31. Men, you can also donate for the cause. There’s NO need to pick up any vouchers at retail outlets this season. Tickets will be sold out of the ticket booths at Guest Services. Ticket and rental packages will be sold in the Alpine Activity Centre.
After 8 seasons of “Shred for the Cure”, our guests have raised our goal of $150,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation. Mt Seymour prides itself on being the “locals” mountain so this season they are mixing it up and supporting a LOCAL charity: The Bloom Group, an organization that provides some of the most progressive social services in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside for over 50 years, including low-barrier shelters for women and children.

The Bloom Group | Community. Services. Together.
The Bloom Group Community Services Society has provided some of the most progressive social services in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside for over 50 years. We support the most vulnerable in our community through the provision of a range of housing, health and social services.
Women and Children Services | Women. Forward. Together.
Respect for who they are. Support for who they can be. For many women in crisis, their lives are complicated by the demands of motherhood or by mental health, addiction, abuse, and other challenges. Our shelters for women and children are designed to accommodate and welcome them as they are—without judgement or exclusion. For those facing mental health, addiction, abuse, and other challenges, Powell Place offers a welcome refuge and a starting point for their journey to safety and stability. For women with children, Springhouse provides a shelter from homelessness or violence, and ensures mothers and their children can stay together when they’re at their most vulnerable. In a safe, homelike environment, we the women serve with services that help them heal, grow stronger, and start the next chapter of their lives. In 2014 we housed and served 177 women. One in three moved on to permanent housing or treatment services, breaking the cycle of poverty and abuse.
