Snowy falls through the ice
Just as she might have done hundreds of thousands of years ago, Snowy the Mammoth has fallen in a pond in Snowmass Village.
A metal sculpture of a mammoth was placed on the ice on one of the ponds at the Snowmass Club golf course in February for the Mammoth Meltdown, a fundraiser for Snowmass Rotary. Donors bought tickets to submit guesses as to when Snowy would fall through the melting ice, which she did at 2:35:40 p.m. on March 18.
The three winners with the closest guesses all chose March 18 as the date. The winners are Jim Pomey, with first and second place, who submitted guesses of 1:47 p.m. and 3:35 p.m.. Rotary member Randy Woods came in third with a guess of 12:03 p.m.
The winners receive their prizes at the Rotary Club’s meeting on April 1. The first place prize is $1,000.
Proceeds from the Mammoth Meltdown and the Rotary Club’s other fundraisers benefit local and international nonprofits. Over the last fiscal year, the club has donated $28,000 to local charities, $13,400 to international nonprofits and $11,000 to educational programs in the valley, including providing dictionaries for Basalt fifth-graders and scholarships for Basalt High School graduates who go to technical school.
