Slopes For Hope is an "Everest-style" ski-a-thon; individuals and teams attempt to ski the vertical of Mt. Everest in one day at Whitewater Ski Resort. There is also entertainment and activities at the base of the mountain.

Funds raised from the event go to the Canadian Cancer Society and support excellence in research, cancer prevention initiatives, and support programs such as Cancer Information Service, Cancer Connection, Lodges, and Camp Goodtimes for children with cancer and their families.
