Saturday night the Antelope Butte Foundation along with the Sheridan College Outdoor Adventure Club sponsored the "Butte-ify the Big Horns," a fundraising event to help re-open Antelope Butte Ski and Recreation Area.
Treasurer and founding board member Tony Tarver explains.
Just how much is needed?
The fundraiser was held in the Whitney Academic Center Atrium at Sheridan College and Tarver says the support was tremendous.
He believes Antelope Butte will boost the area's economy.
Tarver grew up learning to ski at a small ski resort and wants to pass that on to his kids.
