Economy lodging brand will fund transportation for 200+ children in Midwest to hit the slopes
DALLAS (Nov. 29, 2022) – For a second year in a row, Motel 6 is working to make winter sports more accessible to children and individuals across the U.S. through two partnerships that aim to ease the financial burdens of skiing and snowboarding.
Through its partnership with the Share Winter Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving the lives, health and fitness of children through winter sports, Motel 6 is funding the transportation to and from ski resorts for over 200 children from six Midwest-based organizations: Corbeau Ski Club, Pocono Family YMCA, Positive Altitudes, Boys and Girls Club of the Wausau Area Inc., BGC Oshkosh and Boardslide Mission.
“The Share Winter Foundation is entirely funded by grants so we would not be able to do what we do without partners like Motel 6,” said Constance Beverley, CEO of Share Winter Foundation. “Transportation is one of the greatest hurdles to youth snow sports participation, so we are grateful for their continued support of our organization.”
Motel 6 and Studio 6 have more than 280 locations near ski resorts in the U.S. and Canada, helping families travel within their budgets. To save on lift tickets when hitting the slopes, My6 members can receive 10% off adult and kid Indy Pass tickets, a multi-resort season pass with access to over 80 ski areas across North America, with the code MOTEL6INDY23.
