2017 Sunset Walk Raffle

Anyone can win! Indulge your senses while you support Point Lobos with these unique raffle packages. Tickets are $10 each or twelve for $100. Pre-orders will be accepted through September 20, 2017. All proceeds benefit the Point Lobos Foundation. 

Package 1: ENERGIZE

Magical, raw, expansive and remote, Kirkwood is the stuff of legend. With the deepest, driest snow around and some of North America's most diverse and challenging terrain, Kirkwood offers big mountain riding with small town attitude. It's about adventure and challenge. Discovery from exploration. Personal satisfaction, from personal challenge. At the end of the day, a uniquely rewarding experience that can only be had at a handful of places on Earth. Tucked away about 35 miles southwest of South Lake Tahoe, Kirkwood is out of the way but the reward is well worth the effort of finding it.

Their unique location atop the Sierra Crest combined with elevations ranging 7,800 to 9,800 feet create a little something they like to call the K-Factor – a geographical predisposition to receive the lightest, the driest, and the most plentiful snow in the Tahoe region.  With 2000 feet of vertical drop, and over 2300 acres of terrain from calm groomed beginner runs to hair raising cornices, cliffs and the most high angle grooming around, there’s something for everyone at the 'Wood.

In the summertime, Kirkwood turns into a picturesque high alpine adventure playground! World class rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and fishing are all just within a stone's throw of the resort. Fields of wildflowers will take your breath away during the summer months, and the turning aspens make a beautiful backdrop during the fall months.

Enjoy 3 nights at The Lodge House, Kirkwood Ski Resort. Two bedrooms, two baths, sleeps 6. Located in the Mountain Lodge with decks and views to the spectacular surrounding mountains. Value: $2,250

Package 2: RESTORE

On the palate the wine is vibrant and silky smooth, with a rich mouthfeel and a crisp, dry finish. Complete your experience with two passes to the Refuge (expires 3/31/18). Set in 2 acres of serene indoor solariums and outdoor relaxation areas with Fire Pits overlooking the Santa Lucia Preserve, Refuge offers the ultimate relaxation experience.
