Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports will host more than 20 athletes from across the country who are blind or visually impaired at Pico Mountain Resort, Feb. 3-6, 2023. Athletes will learn to and participate in alpine skiing, snowboarding and Nordic skiing plus snowshoeing.
The event continues to be the largest annual gathering of skiers in the U.S. who are blind and visually impaired. In some cases, this will be a participant’s first time skiing without sight. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with alpine skiing at Pico Mountain Resort with the option to participate in Nordic skiing. Saturday will also see participants given the opportunity to try air rifle with an auditory rifle system, the same system used for Paralympic biathlon competitions.
No matter the lesson, Vermont Adaptive’s team of highly-trained instructors will work with attendees to improve their skills. Registration is closed for participants but volunteers are needed! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re available.
