Save the date for the 16th Annual First Descents Ball at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch in Beaver Creek, Colorado!

We hope you’ll join us as we honor and celebrate the healing power of adventure and over two decades of life-changing outdoor programs. This special event will welcome more than 300 of our closest friends, business leaders, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs from around the country for a weekend of community, adventure, and connection.

FD Ball guests will join us for an entire weekend of events, including our Horizon Line Reception and Adventure Sessions, before donning your hat for a night of powerful stories, moving films, delicious meals, and an epic dance party to cap it all off.

In the coming weeks, we will be sending out more details about the event, how to register, hotel information, and more.
