Montana Ski Company Embraces the Spirit of Giving

WHITEFISH, MT--(Marketwire - December 6, 2010) - The Montana Ski Company announced the launch of its new website today. "The new website is very exciting, but we're focused on a far more important initiative this holiday season," says Pat Corrick, board member of the company. "We are committed to sharing the excitement and happiness that skiing offers by helping some of America's true heroes -- disabled veterans." The Whitefish, Montana based ski company has committed that for every pair of skis it sells between now and Christmas, it will donate a set of adaptive skis to a disabled veteran through In addition, the company has pledged that if 10,000 people 'friend' the Montana Ski Company Facebook page between now and December 24th, those 10,000 friends will be entered into a drawing for one of five pairs of Montana Ski Company skis, whose names will be drawn and announced on the company's new website Christmas morning.

The Montana Ski Company is a grassroots company started last year with venture capital from another Whitefish company, Bledsoe Capital Group (BCG). Drew Bledsoe, founder of BCG, part-time resident of Whitefish and avid skier, stated, "This is a company that has an exciting mission -- making high quality skis and snowboards while having a positive impact on the environment and people who use its products. That's what really got us involved." Chad Wold, Whitefish attorney and partner in BCG, added, "The principle that guides our involvement in companies is that they need to be doing good, while doing well, and this company clearly exemplifies that spirit." 

The handmade American manufactured skis, snowboards and adaptive skis are constructed with solid wood cores using sustainable Montana wood products. Kim Barreda, head of the Adaptive Ski Division of the company and an adaptive skier herself, said, "This is the only company in the U.S. I know of that even offers a product for an adaptive skier, which can mean absolute freedom to someone that uses a wheelchair."
