Our Annual Snowdown Wine & Spirits Tasting & Silent Auction was a HUGE success!
2018 marked the 24th LPOSC Snowdown Event. We had a packed house, full of wonderful supporters in Mutu’s to sample and celebrate. Guests enjoyed sampling carefully selected varietals of wine by Animas Wine & Spirits, and craft spirits from local and regional distilleries (Durango Craft Spirits, Honeyville Honey House Distillery, Woods Mountain Distillery & Peach Street Distilling), along with local foods from Sunnyside Meats and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
Responding to community requests, LPOSC once again focused its silent auction and raffle on “quality of life” items that connect LPOSC supporters to land conservation. From a llama guided day hike with lunch provided, to an Alpacka Raft, to fly fishing on private conservation easements – the auction and raffle had great energy and were a fun way to support LPOSC in its work.
