STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Friends with the common interest of “more fun now” are gathering for a cause this weekend.

In partnership with the Conservation Lands Foundation, T Bar, which is located at the base of Steamboat Ski Area, will host a “Protect our Public Lands” fundraiser from 2 p.m. to close Saturday.

“We are hoping to rally as many people from the community as possible and generate awareness of the recent actions threatening to reduce the size of two National Monuments in Utah, Grand Staircase Escalante and Bears Ears National Monument,” said Charlie Preston-Townsend, T Bar’s chef de cuisine.

Preston-Townsend said the intent is to raise money, which go towards the legal efforts of the Conservation Lands Foundation, which has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration.

The event will include writing postcards, courtesy of Smartwool, which be sent to the Department of the Interior. Door prizes from GrassSticks, Big Agnes, photographer Noah Wetzel, Honey Stinger, Protect Our Winters, Storm Peak Brewery, Dirt Makes Me Squirt and Yer State Birds will also be given away.

“We love when you ski down to your bar, we love seeing you enjoying the mountains, rivers and deserts,” said Tres Holloway, T Bar owner. “Those lands are being challenged, and we need to stand together to protect our precious resources.”
