The Ski Corporation undertakes several fundraising initiatives for local organizations through special events, learn-to-ski/ride programs, payroll deductions, cash and in-kind support.

United Way: The Ski Corporation contributes to the Routt County United Way through three primary means: employee deductions, ski medallions and employee participation. Individual employees have the option to deduct a set amount each week from their paycheck. Over the years, an average of $10,000 is donated from individual payroll deductions to the United Way. Secondly, the resort contributes two Silver Medallions annually to the United Way for fundraising efforts. Finally, the resort encourages employees to participate in the annual United Way Day of Caring donating their time and skills. Through these programs the company has donated more than $225,000 since the deduction program began in 1991.

Learn-to-Ski/Ride: During the past season, lessons, lift tickets and some lunches were donated to local organizations, schools and programs.

Local Schools: To mitigate the cost of skiing/riding for local kids and reduce the barriers to learning for local kids, the resort offers Steamboat, Craig, Hayden, Rangley, Meeker, Oak Creek and Walden Elementary, Junior/Middle and High School students, faculty and school employees free lift tickets the last weekend of the season. This program is essential in enabling every child in the Yampa Valley who wants to learn to ski/ride has the opportunity.

Charitable Groups: Groups receiving support include organizations such as Horizons, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Jimmie Heuga Foundation, S.O.S, The Sunshine Kids, Red Cross and the Burn Center, just to name a few.

Honor Roll Program: In an effort to recognize the importance of education, the resort introduced a program several years ago that rewards students from seven local schools for their scholastic achievement. The Honor Roll program awards students quarterly with a free lift ticket, rental, lessons, and discounted food package or summer product.

Corporate/In-Kind: Through resort products, services and individual employee participation, the resort is able to work with various organizations across a wide range of classifications donating in-kind services/products. Several departments provide on-mountain assistance for special events, competition services and fundraisers. In addition, the resort donates video production talents to film and produce video projects for various community organizations. Over the years, the resort's video production skills have been instrumental for the Community's Be Genuine Guest Service campaign, Steamboat Arts Council, Purchase of Development Rights as well as the annual Hazie Werner Award for Excellence.
