Cody Ski Hill Donating Ticket Sales to Support Ukraine
Written by Andrew-Rossi on February 28, 2022
The Sleeping Giant Ski Area announced it would donate one full day of ticket sales to the Ukrainian army as they defend their home from the Russian invasion.
On the evening of Sunday, Feb. 27, the Sleeping Giant Ski Area near Cody announced a promotional offer. However, this one-day opportunity will allow skiers to contribute to a nation under attack.
On Feb. 24, 2022, Russian military forces were ordered to cross the border of Ukraine. As of Monday, Feb. 28, the invasion forces are attacking and attempting to occupy Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine.
In light of this needlessly aggressive invasion, Sleeping Giant is doing what it can to support the people and soldiers of Ukraine.
All Sleeping Giant ticket sales on Saturday, March 5, will be donated to the army of Ukraine in their ongoing effort to defend their home.
“You can purchase a ski ticket online for Saturday, March 5,” the update reads, “and put your love note to Ukraine in the ****notes line. We’ll redeem the ticket and add it to the fund.”
Nick Piazza, the owner of Sleeping Giant, made his fame and fortune while working in Ukraine for several years. Since the first signs of Russian aggression, he has been doing everything possible to support his friends and colleagues in the country.
Sleeping Giant tickets for adults and children can be purchased online.
- $59 Adults Ages 19-69
- $46 Juniors Ages 13-18
- $25 Children Ages 6-12
- $25 Seniors Ages 70+
- Free Kids Ages 1-5
Ticket prices at Sleeping Giant have remained unchanged for the entire season to keep the hill accessible to everyone in Cody, Park County, and Bighorn Basin.
Accessibility is a priority for the ski hill’s management as they continue revitalizing the mountain to make it a popular and profitable winter recreation destination.
“Our #1 goal is to make The Giant as accessible as we can for the Bighorn Basin community and for us to stay on our feet while doing so. We believe that effective communication is the best way to do that. So, if we have pleased you, tell others. If we didn’t, please tell us. We have set up an email for you to share your ideas on how we can improve in order to make your customer experience better.”
Now, that accessibility is assisting a nation under attack and supporting the brave soldiers defending their homes.
“Ukraine’s patriotism is admirable,” says the Sleeping Giant management, “and we stand behind it.”
