The recipient of funding from next winter's Benefits Days, in which early-season lift tickets sell for $25 with proceeds going to a nonprofit, will be determined by an application process, PCMR spokesman Andy Miller said.
Nonprofits interested in being selected must apply by June 16. Details are available at http://www.theparkcityfoundation.org.
