SkiCarpool.com

I've been taking advantage of this skicarpooling website for the past few years. I hope everyone else in the Front Range of Colorado is using it too. It's a great way to save gas, money, and meet new friends.

Part of their 2008 newsletter email.

Go Big


SkiCarpool had a great season and grew about 50% from last season. That's approximately:

* 1000 new users
* 1500 vehicles taken off the road
* 230,000 lbs CO2 prevented
* $40,000 in gas money

If you haven't responded to our brief survey, there's still time, please take it now , it's only one minute. This season's impact summary is brought to you by our new sponsor REC Solar.

We have a secret


SkiCarpool has one employee, its passionate Executive Director, Glenn, who first came up with the idea, created the website, and has worked on SkiCarpool ever since with help and guidance from our volunteer Board. In order to keep SkiCarpool free we need more support from you, the people who the service was made for. We've saved you $40,000 in gas money this year and what we ask is simple, a $5 donation each time you carpool. That would raise $10,000 for us, just 25% of what we've saved you, so you'll still come out ahead without even considering the other ways SkiCarpool has benefited you(see our home page). Please donate here for the carpools you made this season and know that your contribution really does make a difference.

Have a great off season!

Executive Director,
Glenn Lieberman

Sorry for the delay

Life is rather interesting and busy these days. I'll try to start posting here again. I've written a number of informative articles on skiing, snowboarding, and skibiking. We'll see where it all goes. It's all snowsliding.
