We’re excited to announce Midwest Freeriders has reached their fundraising goal for a new BigAirBag with a donation from Eagle Point Solar.
The landing bag is designed to greatly increase safety for freestyle landing for our community youth located at the Sundown Mountain Resort south terrain park. Slopes are open this weekend and a kickoff event for the new BigAirBag will be scheduled in January.
“As a Solar Energy Consultant for Eagle Point Solar, avid skier, and board member of Midwest Freeriders, I’m proud to present this check to the organization to reach their goal. The BigAirBag is the first of it’s kind in North America and it’s right here in Dubuque, Iowa at Sundown Mountain Resort. Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising efforts to make this a reality.” stated Tyler Chuckie Billmeyer (pictured center).
“We’re excited to watch our local youth use this exciting training tool. This is a great addition to the community and will greatly benefit our young skiers as they advance their skills with Midwest Freeriders,” stated Mark Gordon, General Manager of Sundown Mountain Resort (pictured left).
“It’s has been a dream of mine to develop the Midwest Freeriders into a club where kids in the community have access to the tools they need to be successful and help them build confidence by learning to snowboard and/or ski. These skills will filter through into other aspects of their life. Thank you to Eagle Point Solar and everyone who believes in our vision and has donated to our fundraiser to achieve this goal,” stated Ben White, Realtor at American Realty, President of Midwest Freeriders (pictured right).
