D Money's Poker Run
Saturday, December 21, 2019
Sugar Bowl
The kick-off event of the annual Silver Belt Series. A family-friendly poker run where competitors will explore the mountain, gathering cards to put together a winning hand! There will be two courses, We will have an Intermediate and Advanced course so all ski-abilities can participate! Stick around for Prizes and Apres in the Judah Vista Bar.

Participants can choose intermediate stops or expert stops around the mountain. At check-in, you will be given the list of 7 locations to visit and pick-up a card. There will also be 4 jokers hidden around the mountain. There is not set route and this is not a race, just a fun way to explore the mountain.

Cash and prizes will be awarded to the best 3 hands for both the intermediate and advanced classes. Proceeds from the event support the Truckee-Tahoe, Excellence in Education Foundation.
