Giving Back

Pac Rim believes it giving back to our community... whether by raising funds or volunteering. As you can see below, our emphasis is mostly ski related and causes we are passionate about. Listed are the many ways you can get involved.

Can Do MS

We have a very soft spot in our hearts for Can Do MS, founded by our friend Jimmie Heuga. Jimmie's innovative techniques has done much for people living with MS. For more information visit www.cando-ms.org or call 970.926.1290.

Ski 4 MS

Can Do MS hosts a number of fund raising events. We have fielded a team in Squaw Valley for the past 10 years for Ski 4 MS. It's so much fun and such a great cause. For more information visit CanDoMS-Ski4MS.

The Ski-A-Thon enables winter fanatics to have fun on the slopes while supporting the US Adaptive Recreation Center at Bear Mountain. For more information visit usarc.org/skiathon.

USARC Peak 2 Peak

The Peak to Peak Pedal is a life-changing event, not just for the cyclists, but for those whom the ride supports. Participants ride from the top of Bear Mtn to the top of Mammoth. For more information visit usarc.org/peak-to-peak-pedal.
