Park City's EpicPromise Chairs for Charity event takes place at the Kimball Art Center December 8 – 10. 

What is Chairs for Charity? 

When Park City took down the Motherlode chair lift this summer, they kept a few chairs to help support local nonprofits. Over the last several weeks, 18 Park City nonprofits, including KPCW, have teamed up with local artists to create a work of art out of their chair. All of the chairs will be auctioned off at a private event on December 10. KPCW's artists are Park City-based Bill Kranstover and Malia Denali. 

With temperatures in the teens, few runs open, and thousands of excited skiers, the largest ski resort in America’s first ski season with that distinction got off to a chilly but jovial start on Saturday.  Lynn Ware Peek has more.
