Support the World's Biggest Ski Day to Conquer Cancer

Pink Vail keeps growing every year. This year we are excited to have our main Pink Vail Headquarters at Golden Peak, on the east side of Vail Mountain. As this event grows each year we need more and more volunteers to assist us in making this day amazing for all participants and patients. There are over 400 opportunities available leading up to the event, on the day of, and post-event. Shifts can range in time for a few hours or half of a day. Volunteer opportunities will be announced in February. If you have questions about volunteering please contact Brenda Hawkins at

No, you don’t. While some volunteer positions require a pass, not all of them do; there are plenty of ways to help if you don’t have a pass and/or if you are not a skier.  This year it will be even easier to join us if you are not a skier.  Our Pink Vail Headquarters has moved to Golden Peak. Here you will find live music, kid’s zone, Pink Vail registration, merchandise and much more. 

We offer 30-60 minute trainings a couple weeks before Pink Vail to help get our volunteers familiar with their volunteer positions. Once you sign up for a shift and we have the training dates set you will be invited to join us. 

A few hours of your time is all we need to make Pink Vail spectacular. We will have shifts the day of Pink Vail, but also shifts are available before Pink Vail. So if you’d rather ski with your team that day then please help us out before Pink Vail. We have some fun thank you gifts for our volunteers this year. Our volunteer thank yous are distributed at the in-person trainings that happen in March.

Pink is always encouraged! As are costumes too! Most volunteers will be given an "Event Staff" bib to wear during your shift. Some shifts are inside a heated tent while others are outside where the weather can change quickly. Please keep in mind dressing in layers when you are planning your outfit for the day. 

Unfortunately parking is not provided. Paid parking is available at Lionshead & Vail Village. It will fill up fast since this year Pink Vail falls during spring break. Please plan ahead. You are encouraged to use free parking options and public transportation. REMEMBER Pink Vail is at Golden Peak this year, so the most convenient parking will be at Vail Village.

Yes a shuttle will be provided from Edwards to Pink Vail Headquarters at Golden Peak. Details TBD

Children may volunteer with their parent. Contact Kim Sharkey at to inquire about the best volunteer positions for children.

Plan ahead to arrive at your volunteer location by the start of your shift. Pink Vail is during spring break this year and it will be busy all over Vail Mountain. Pink Vail Headquarters is at Golden Peak so you need to give yourself some time to get over there if you are parking at Lionshead or riding a bus.

Yes, Vail Resorts will be providing some coffee and breakfast options in the morning as well as a lunch in the afternoon. This will all be served in the volunteer tent at Golden Peak.

Pink Vail proceeds benefit ALL patients at Shaw Cancer Center through enhancements to patient care and by funding our Spirit of Survival program, providing ALL patients the opportunity to receive free exercise training, nutrition coaching, emotional support, massages, acupuncture, outdoor adventures and much more. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient’s quality of life, but are not typically covered by insurance.
