    Maybe they fixed it? I don't see anything wrong with it.

    And yeah... neat idea and cause.

    I see 3 things that are just silly wrong, so I voted 3. Another thing is goofy, but not wrong, just potentially painful.

    Adult skis are each missing a binding, snowboard rentals have no bindings, upper and middle B-roll shots are not from Pico.

    Individually those are 6, so I voted *>3

    There are only 5 people on the 6-person chair. Only utilizing 83.3% of the uphill capacity available.

    And Pico doesn't have a 6-person lift... but I still think the website is fine for what it's intended for.

    Great cause, awesome idea.

    The website is indeed wacky....it reminded me of a spoof website and I had to check if was indeed for a real event.

    Why are they holding the skis that way??? Looks like a 3-D movie from the 1980s.

    And why are the skis not base to base?

    What a mess. I think one picture is actually Tahoe....the lake in the background.

    I found that picture to be the weirdest one. What a bizarre way to hold skis. And what’s around the guy’s neck, or is his sweater caught in the binding? It would’ve been better just to get two people to pose for a pic if you can’t find a good stock image. And WTF kind of stock image is that anyway?

    and the caption on that photo should say, “If you can neither ride nor drive....you can hike!”

    Voted "1".

    Poor choice from stock photo supply.

    Because otherwise you'd have to stack them base-to-base... duh.

    I am curious what the white block is in between the front of the skis the woman is holding. Damping device? Bar of soap? Styrofoam packing?

    If you scroll down to the bottom, the Bio’s are similarly a hot mess - “other awesome people”?
