Our apologies. This event has been cancelled due to weather. Mt. Crescent is closed because the unseasonably warm temps keep melting the snow. This annual event will be back next year.

We’ll be heading back to Mt. Crescent for our annual day of downhill snow skiing. You will have option to try snowboarding this year. This is a day on the slopes with other visually impaired folks and your own personal sighted ski guide. A ski lesson, ski equipment rental, lunch and a lift pass included.

****Please make sure you are absolutely going to attend if you sign up for this and other events. This event requires a one-on-one volunteer ski guide for each skier with vision loss. Volunteer ski guides are not easy to find. Each will be reserving the day for us and arranging travel to get to Mt. Crescent. If they show up and don’t have someone to ski with due to “no show” or last-minute cancellations it is a waste of their time and will probably have a negative impact on their future availability to volunteer. We encourage you to sign up, but also to show up and be respectful of the work that goes into planning these events.****

Travel to Mt. Crescent will be provided for adults with vision loss that do not have other transportation to Mt. crescent since it is out of public transportation routes. We will meet at Outlook in the morning and return to Outlook after. You will be responsible for your ride to and from Outlook and home.
